Kevin Love: (Hand) Contact Work Denied
Update: Love did not gain clearance to begin contact work during Wednesday's examination in New York City, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. His right hand is healing correctly, and he'll be checked out once again in 2-to-3 weeks.

Recommendation: There was some hope that Love would be cleared Wednesday, as he had made steady progress in his rehab efforts in recent weeks. However, he won't be able to take contact for at least two weeks, meaning we're likely looking at an early April return. Considering that point, he won't be of much use in the upcoming fantasy playoffs, meaning owners should explore other options.
