Kevin Love back in Wolves' lineup

The Minnesota Timberwolves got All-Star Kevin Love back in the lineup Wednesday after a three-game absence because of a strained left groin.

He scored 16 points and 9 boards in 26 minutes, but the Timberwolves lost 108-91.

The NBA's leading rebounder did not make last week's trip to Dallas and Oklahoma City and also sat out the game Sunday against Boston.

"All systems should be a go tonight," Love said on "The Scott Van Pelt Show" on ESPN Radio earlier Wednesday. "It will probably be a game-time decision, but I'm looking forward to getting out there tonight and being out there after missing three games."

Love entered Wednesday averaging 20.3 points and 15.4 rebounds.
