Kevin Love Concussion: T-Wolves Forward Exits Vs. Nuggets With Head Injury

Minnesota Timberwolves superstar Kevin Love played only eight minutes on Wednesday night against the Denver Nuggets before exiting the game with zero points and three rebounds on 0-of-5 shooting. Love suffered a concussion sometime during the first quarter and has not re-entered since. He will stay overnight at a Denver hospital.

Love has had a dynamite season for Minnesota and has turned himself into a legitimate MVP candidate in the second half of the season. The power forward came into the game against the Nuggets averaging 26.5 points and 13.5 rebounds per night. His PER is 25.68.

Given that concussions are the latest hot button issue in sports, it's certainly a troubling sign for Minnesota, and one nobody wanted to see.
