MANKATO, Minn. -- Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love had an MRI on his swollen right knee on Tuesday.

The exam showed no significant damage, only some mild inflammation.

Love missed the first practice on Tuesday morning to go to the Twin Cities for the exam. But he returned and participated fully in the evening practice.

Love says that his knee feels fine and that there is no concern going forward.

The team says that there's no need to monitor the situation and that the Wolves will hold him out of practice if the swelling returns.

Love averaged 14 points and 11 rebounds for the Timberwolves last season. He also was a valuable reserve for Team USA in its gold-medal run in the world championships this summer.
