Report: Kevin Love won't need surgery to repair broken hand

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love will not need surgery to repair two broken bones in his right hand, according to the Associated Press.

Love met with specialists in New York on Thursday, one day after breaking his hand while doing knuckle pushups in a morning workout. Doctors informed Love that the injury can heal without surgery, but he is still expected to miss six to eight weeks.

The two-time All-Star broke the third and fourth metacarpals on his shooting hand.

Thursday morning, Love thanked fans for their support and well-wishes via Twitter:

He averaged 26 points and 13.3 rebounds last season.
