Fantasy Basketball: Love Lost

Oct 17, 2009

The Timberwolves were dealt a major blow when PF Kevin Love suffered a broken bone in his left hand that could sideline the second-year player for two months.

Love, a gifted rebounder, will surely be missed.  The Wolves don’t have anyone on their roster to fill his void.  Al Jefferson, Ryan Hollins, and Ryan Gomes see a slight bump in their fantasy values.

This makes Love an interesting selection in fantasy drafts.  You likely won’t get anything steady from him this calendar year.  He will give you a nice boost in the second half of the year.  You’ll just have to sit on him because clearly the talent is there.  If you are going to take a risk on him, you probably should play it relatively safe with your earlier picks.  I wouldn’t consider taking him until around the 10th round of fantasy drafts.
