Love's hurt.

Kevin Love appeared to hurt his leg in the Minnesota Timberwolves' Jan. 24 game against the Golden State Warriors.

At first, Daily Dime Alert reported that the star forward was holding his ankle:

He was unable to shake off the injury, and later in the game, he walked to the bench grabbing his knee:

Before leaving, Love was leading the T-Wolves in scoring, with 21 points. He also grabbed 11 rebounds to earn the double-double.

Love later returned to the game, though it's unclear how big of an impact his injury will have going forward.

It goes without saying that Love is important to Minnesota. He is fourth in the league in scoring (25.0 PPG) and second in rebounding (13.0 RPG) heading into Friday night. His player efficiency rating of 27.20 is also fourth in the league.

The Timberwolves have struggled to find any sort of consistency this season, and as a result, they're on the outside looking in to the playoffs in the loaded Western Conference.
