Kevin Love Injury: Timberwolves All-Star Cleared To Return To Minneapolis

Minnesota Timberwolves has been cleared to travel back to Minnesota following a short stay in a Denver hospital due to a mild concussion, the team has announced.

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love suffered a mild concussion and neck strain in last night’s game at Denver, and stayed overnight at a hospital for precautionary reasons. After further evaluation today, Love’s diagnosis remains unchanged and he has been cleared to return to Minneapolis. He will not play in tonight’s game vs. the L.A. Clippers.

Love has missed just four games this season, while logging 39 minute per game, trailing only Loul Deng for the highest average in the NBA. With the Timberwolves all but eliminated from playoff contention, it wouldn't be surprising to see Love sit out the remaining seven games of the season.

Love leads Minnesota with 26 points and 13.3 rebounds per game.
