Timberwolves Vs. Suns: Kevin Love Will Play, Jose Juan Barea A 'Game-time Decision' In Phoenix

Despite suffering from back spasms lately, Kevin Love says he will play Monday night against the Phoenix Suns, while Jose Juan Barea says he will be a "game-time decision", according to Jerry Zgoda of The Minneapolis Star Tribune. Via Zgoda:

Kevin Love, btw, left the US Airways Center this morning with icepacks strapped to his back. He said the back is still sore, but said he'll play and hope Tuesday and Wednesday helps it get better.

Barea has missed the last two games due to an ankle injury. The Timberwolves will rely much more on Barea after Ricky Rubio suffered a season-ending torn ACL.

Love missed Minnesota's match up with the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night due to the back spasms, but returned to play 41 minutes in the Timberwolves loss to the Hornets.
