Kevin Love Re-Fractures Hand, Surgery Possible and a few other NBA comments

Rob Grabowski-USA TODAY Sports

Former UCLA forward Kevin Love, now an Olympian and All-Star forward with the Minnesota Timberwolves re-fractured his right hand on Thursday. According to Sports Illustrated, surgery is now possible.

It's too bad because Love was starting to play pretty well for the Wolves after breaking the same hand in the preseason.

This likely derails any hope for getting three Bruins into the NBA All Star game. Russell Westbrook is a lock in the West, of course. Jrue Holiday is being talked about as a lock for the East team, he's having his best season so far in Philly. Love would have made it three Bruins in the All Star game.

One other NBA note: Matt Barnes is having a very nice season for the L.A. Clippers. Barnes is one of two/three Lavin era Bruins left in the NBA along with Earl Watson and Ryan Hollins, who started his career with Lavin but also played for Ben Howland. Statistically you wouldn't notice him, but I watch the Clippers all the time and Matt is doing many things well. He's defending, getting to loose balls, making the smart pass and hitting timely three point shots. He also provides a bit of attitude and toughness for the Clippers. Barnes has bounced around the league and has never been highly paid (by NBA standards, he makes a lot compared to me) but he's been a contributor to some pretty good teams. He seems to have found a nice role with the Clippers, backing up Caron Butler and starting when there have been injuries or absences. Grant Hill returns this week, so Matt's minutes might go down, but that doesn't change the fact that Barnes has been a key bench player for one of the NBA's best teams.
