Dan Wetzel:

Love remains weeks away from being cleared to play

The SportsXchange

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love had his surgically repaired right hand examined on Wednesday and was given the green light to increase his conditioning program.

But the two-time All-Star was not cleared to begin full-contact drills, according to the Pioneer Press. Love will be re-evaluated in two to three weeks.

Dr. Michelle Carlson, performed the surgery on Love's hand on Jan. 15 in New York. On Wednesday, Carlson said his hand, which he originally injured doing knuckle push-ups in October and then refractured in a Jan. 3 game in Denver is healing properly.

Love has played in only 18 games this season.
