Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love will be activated and start tonight's home game against the Denver Nuggets, reports the Associated Press.

Love has not played this season due to an accident during a pre-practice workout with his personal trainer at his home on Oct. 17. Love was originally supposed to miss six t0 eight weeks with a broken right hand. The Timberwolves have gone 5-4 in his absence.

Love led the Timberwolves in scoring and rebounding in the 2011-12 season as he averaged 26.0 points and 13.3 rebounds a game.
