Jerry Zgoda missed the entire Kevin Garnett era, but he's back covering the Timberwolves after working the beat for their first four seasons two decades ago. In between, he covered a bit of everything: Gopher men's and women's basketball and NCAA athletics, golf, outdoor recreation, sports media and a little Vikings and Twins.

BREAKING NEWS: Love has re-fractured shooting hand

More bad news for the Wolves:

Kevin Love has re-fractured his right shooting hand, the team said before tonight's game against Portland.

No recovery timetable will be known until he visits next week the same New York City specialist who he visited when he broke that hand in October.

He left Thursday's game at Denver in the third quarter what the team said at the time was a sprained finger.

An MRI taken Saturday revealed a fracture of the third metacarpal in his hand, the same one where he broke the third and fourth metacarpal bones while he said he was doing knuckle pushups.

Dr. Andy Weiland will determine whether Love will need surgery this time. He didn't require surgery in October.
