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.

Love practices, takes final test, still questionable for Sunday vs. Warriors

Kevin Love and Luke Ridnour participated in the Wolves' light practice on Saturday, but both will be game-time decisions for Sunday's game against Golden State.

Love was scheduled to take one league-mandated test on a computer after practice, the final step toward clearing him to play again this season.

That doesn't necessarily mean he will.

"I feel better, I feel good," he said. "I'm just, as you can imagine from a lack of activity, I'm a little bit out of shape. I'm not surre yet. I'll kind of see how I feel tomorrow and just go from there."

Why even risk it with just two games left?

"That's up to the medical staff and myself to decide," he said. "If it is, it is and if it isn't, so be it. I'd like to try and be a leader and get back for these two games."

Ridnour was cutting and running after practice, but had a brace on that ankle that he sprained nearly three weeks ago at Sacramento.

Love also on Saturday sported a completely clean shaven look, even that creepy mustache from the other day was gone.

“He looks like he’s about 12 years old,” Rick Adelman said. “I don’t think anybody recognized him.”

Love had several playful Twitter exchanges with tweeps who mocked his 1970s porn star mustache.

“I was going to keep it,” he said, “but I couldn’t look in the mirror and see my dad every time.”

Minneapolis barbers were busy: Martell Webster also has shaved that mohawky thing he had and now has some close cropped thing that I couldn't tell exactly what it was.

“His is worse than mine, I can pat this down and make it look decent,” Love said, patting a thick head of hair. “But I just look young.”
