Kevin Love Sustained an Elbow Injury While He Was Sleeping the Other Night

Kevin Love Sustained an Elbow Injury While He Was Sleeping the Other Night

We've seen pro athletes sustain dozens of freaky injuries over the years. But, we've never heard about one getting injured like this.

On Friday night, Kevin Love went to sleep at his home in Minnesota and got a good night's rest in anticipation of the Timberwolves preseason game against the Bulls on Saturday. But, when he woke up, he realized that he couldn't move his arm at all. The problem? Well, he apparently slept with his arm hanging off the bed, which resulted in an incredibly sore elbow the next day that wouldn't even allow him to pick up a basketball.

"I couldn't shoot it 10 feet," he said.

 

Don't worry, 'Wolves fans. Love said it was only a "24-hour deal." But, just in case, you guys might want to pitch in and purchase a $23,000 bed for him like the one that former T-Wolves star Al Jefferson has. Just a thought.
