Timberwolves forward Kevin Love has a meeting scheduled in New York on Wednesday, March 13, to meet with the doctor that performed the Jan. 15 surgery on his right hand.

Love said the meeting with Dr. Michelle Carson could determine when he might be able to return to the lineup.

"We'll pick a game or two that's right for me to come back," Love said before the Wolves' game Wednesday night, March 6, against the Washington Wizards at Target Center. "Until I see what the doctor says, I don't know."

Love was projected to miss eight to 10 weeks after refracturing the third and fourth metacarpal bones in his right hand Jan. 3 at Denver. He originally broke the two bones in October while doing knuckle push-ups but did not require surgery.

Love said his recovery is on schedule and that he hopes to play again before the end of the month. He started doing light shooting and dribbling last week when the Wolves were in Los Angeles to play the Lakers.

"I shot a little more today," Love said. "The doctor said it would be about 10 weeks before I'm fully healed. My range of motion isn't quite there yet. My hand still gets a little stiff sometimes."
