MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Minnesota All-Star forward Kevin Love is out for the fourth straight game because of concussion symptoms.
Coach Rick Adelman confirmed Love's absence before the Timberwolves hosted Memphis on Tuesday night. Guard Luke Ridnour was also declared out for the eighth game in a row with a sprained right ankle.
Adelman said he'd like them to play again before the season is over, but only if they're healthy. The coach said Ridnour might play Sunday against Golden State but acknowledged he's "pretty pessimistic."
Center Darko Milicic was on the bench as well, for the 10th game in a row because of a strained right hamstring. And center Nikola Pekovic was still bothered by bone spurs in his right ankle. The Wolves were considering shutting him down as well for the season's last week.
