Kevin Love misses practice for groin
MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota Timberwolves power forward Kevin Love did not practice on Tuesday because of a strained left groin.
Love says he was injured in a game against Utah last week, but played through it against the Lakers on Friday. He started the game against Sacramento on Sunday, but he played just 14 minutes. Love finished with three rebounds and no points in the loss to the Kings.
He says he is unsure if he'll be ready for Minnesota's next game at Dallas on Thursday night. He says another day of rest on Wednesday may be enough to get him ready.
Love says it's still important to him to finish out the season, despite only 11 games remaining and no playoffs on the line.
