Kevin Love 2012-2013 Season Outlook

Recommended Posts

I had the 9th pick in a 12 teamer. I took Josh Smith at 9, but when the turn came around he was still there at 16 and I couldn't pass him twice. We also have an IR spot to use.

I took him 13th. Top 5 value when he comes back. With the right pick, some of us could have two guys in the top 5 in fantasy on their respective teams.

So what's the deal with his return?

Last update on the 14th:

Kevin Love (broken hand) says he will get X-rays on Tuesday and hopes to begin strengthening and shooting after that.

A specialist in New York will examine Love's X-rays and Love will be able to proceed from there. Love had been targeting an early December return, but that appears up to the doctor. Stay tuned. Nov 14 - 7:12 PM

It's now saturday, anyone find any info on what happened or possibly a target date?

Look at the update. The update was posted on Wednesday. It said he "will get X-Rays on Tuesday", meaning that he won't get the X-Rays until the 20th. I'm sure there will be more information made available on that day.

It's cool. I was thinking the same thing you were until I looked at the update again.

Starting to get some offers for him. Anybody have any reason to think he won't beast in a top ten kind of way, maybe a wolves fan with some intuition on how he might mesh with the new roster given his health is intact? I imagine they'll move AK to sf and give Love the ball. Never owned him and pretty excited.

the wolves have no depth. Once Love returns he will be a top 4 player and will be better this year than he was last year.

RW blurb....Crazy. I was expecting another week....

Kevin Love (hand) is surprisingly active and will start against the Nuggets.

Love wasn't expected back until early December. We wouldn't be surprised if he faced some minutes limit in his first night back, but fantasy owners should still plug and play the All-Star forward.

How did he go from 5 on 0 drills a few days ago to playing... Lol

If you will recall the blurb from this past week, the Wolves were going to give Kevin an X-Ray yesterday. It seems to me the X-Ray was so positive that the doctors decided he was good enough to play. I'm pretty freakin surprised and I'm very glad I checked Rotoworld before I started getting ready for work.

Word of warning for those of you in leagues with an IR slot: I got overexcited and tried to swap out KLove with Kyrie Irving, whose game had already locked for the day. This caused Love to lock into my IR slot for tonight and will be placed on my bench tomorrow night...

Don't make the same mistake as me! If you're going to take him out of IR, make sure to swap him with a player who has not locked yet, or drop someone altogether!

Yup. Saw the blurb and I immediately put him in my starting lineup. I wonder whether or not the T-Wolves recent injuries have affected his sudden return. Anyway, the pack leader is back. Wolves are on the hunt.

Unstoppable. What a special talent. I'm so sad I wasn't given more time to convince owners to trade him to me, haha. Damn. Time for Kevin Love -- 30/20 -- beastmode games to make an NBA return!
