The Timberwolves announced Monday that forward Kevin Love will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery on his left knee this week and will miss the remainder of the season.
The procedure will remove a buildup of scar tissue and will likely take place on Wednesday in New York City. A recovery timetable for this procedure is typically 4 to 6 weeks, the team said.
Love finished this season with 18.3 points and 14.0 rebounds per game after breaking his right hand just before the start of the regular season. The break forced him to miss all games up until Nov. 21 against the Denver Nuggets in which he scored 34 points and had 14 boards. Love remained frustrated as he tried to find his shot again.
Just 18 games later, Love broke his hand again and needed surgery to repair it. The team originally said it looked like he'd be able to return to the court before the end of the 2012-13 season, but this week's knee procedure will sideline him until he can likely start full offseason workouts in early June.
