MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Timberwolves are shutting All-Star forward Kevin Love down for the final two games of the regular season to play it safe while he recovers from a concussion.

The Wolves made the announcement on Sunday before they hosted the Golden State Warriors. Love has not played since suffering a concussion and strained neck against Denver on April 11.

The team's leading scorer and rebounder has passed all of his concussion tests and been cleared to play by the NBA. But coach Rick Adelman says the Wolves felt it best not to risk further injury to the new face of the franchise.

Love is fourth in the league with 26 points per game and second in rebounding with 13.3 per game.

Good move. Concussions are a serious matter and it's not worth the risk, the team isn't doing anything.

This is a really good idea-
Last night when we were playing Orlando, Faried went down. He ended up being OK however, it was a pretty scary moment especially when we are already "in" the Post Season. All of our games here on out are simply for positioning...

With a guy of Love's ability and level- you don't want to risk anything...
Why do you love this game? :dribble:
