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 going glove-less tonight at Sacramento

Posted by: Jerry Zgoda under Wolves injury report, Wolves players, Wolves pre-game, Wolves news Updated: November 27, 2012 - 8:30 PM

Unless he changes his mind at the last minute, Kevin Love has been given the OK to play tonight at Sacramento without that protective padded glove on his right shooting hand.

Love tore it off midway through the fourth quarter at Golden State on Saturday and didn't wear it Monday in his first full practice with the team since he broke it last month.

He calls it "restrictive" and attributes his 40 percent field-goal, 18.8 three-point and 64.7 percent free-throw shooting to it.

Also tonight:

* Rick Adelman says he has contemplated making a lineup change at the shooting guard spot, but says he just doesn't have many options so he'll stay with Malcolm Lee there tonight.

The question is how much, and how effective, Lee can play after he got kneed in the thigh Saturday at Golden State. 

Adelman's option include starting Josh Howard there, but he wants to use Howard to back up Andrei Kirilenko at small forward or start Alexey Shved, but he likes Shved' presence off the bench and he likes keeping him in that stable reserve role for now.

Lee, Kirilenko (back spasms) and J.J. Barea (sprained foot) all didn't practice much Monday, but all are expected to play tonight.
