MINNEAPOLIS - Kevin Love is expected to return sometime in March after undergoing surgery on his broken right hand.
The Minnesota Timberwolves announced Tuesday that the operation to repair Love's third and fourth metacarpal bones was successful. The procedure was done by Dr. Michelle Carson at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.
Love was hurt during the Jan. 3 game at Denver, after suffering the same injury in a workout at his home on Oct. 17. The two-time All-Star power forward has played in only 18 of Minnesota's 35 games this season.
