Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love met with doctors in the Twin Cities on Monday to evaluate his right hand, which is broken for the second time this season.
Timberwolves president of basketball operations David Kahn says Love also will consult with a hand specialist in New York this week before determining a course of action. There is no timetable for his return, but Kahn says Love will be out for "a number of weeks."
Love missed the first three weeks of the season after breaking his hand during the preseason. He broke it again last week in Denver.
Kahn also says point guard Ricky Rubio is expected to play Tuesday against Atlanta after missing four games with back spasms.
