Kevin Love injury: Timberwolves' forward game-time decision against Hawks

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sport

The Minnesota Timberwolves could be without All-Star forward Kevin Love when they take on the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday night.

When the Minnesota Timberwolves come to town, the chief "worry" for the opposition is always All-NBA power forward Kevin Love, but his status for Saturday night's game is reportedly up in the air.

Love played 37 minutes during Minnesota's 4-point loss to Memphis on Friday night, and he looked anything but limited with 28 points and 16 rebounds. Still, any ankle injury isn't something to mess with for Rick Adelman and the T-Wolves, and it wouldn't exactly be a shock to see them be exceedingly careful with their most prized player.

Stay tuned for details as they emerge closer to game time, but if the T-Wolves are without Love and Nikola Pekovic (who has already been ruled out for Saturday's game), the Hawks will have a defined advantage in the frontcourt even in their short-handed state.
