As many around the league expected, Kevin Love has been suspended for 2 games by the NBA for his actions in the Timberwolves most recent victory against the Houston Rockets.

It will be interesting to see how the Wolves fare without Love, who has carried the team for much of the season. While we expect Derrick Williams to start in Love’s absence, Anthony Tolliver and Anthony Randolph should see extended minutes off the bench. Tolliver’s role has been minimized since seeing plenty of minutes to start the season, and Randolph has been in street clothes for the last two games.

In other Wolves news, rookie guard Malcolm Lee will begin a rehab assignment with the Sioux Falls Skyforce. Lee is working to get back with the Pups after having knee surgery at the start of the regular season.
