Kevin Love did have that arthroscopic surgery to remove scar tissue buildup on his left knee today while he was at New York City's Hospital for Special Surgery to have a plate removed from his healing right shooting hand.

The team, of course, termed the surgery "successful."

While he's in New York City, the Wolves continue their three-game Western trip without Dante Cunningham against the Clippers in Los Angeles.

Cunningham is a late scratch tonight because of a sore right hamstring.

They'll do so against a Clippers team that on Sunday swept the Lakers in a season series for the first time since Donald Sterline bought the team in 1981 and clinched their first Pacific Division title.

Ricky Rubio, btw, will try tonight to shake off two bad shooting games since he missed a potential game-tying free throw in the final two seconds of Friday's loss to Toronto.

Rubio is 1-for-24 from the field in those two games: 1-for-10 in Tuesday's loss at Golden State and 1-for-13 in Saturday's victory over Detroit that got Rick Adelman career win 1000.
