Previously on That NBA Lottery Pick, we’ve talked about some of the more strange injuries that players in the association have suffered.
The latest man to be added to the interesting injury list is Timberwolves forward Kevin Love who sat out last Saturday’s preseason game against the Chicago Bulls because of an injured arm that was aggravated because he slept on it wrong:
Love didn’t bang it or hyperextend it while playing only the first quarter Friday in Indianapolis. No, he instead slept with his right arm extended off his bed all night Friday and when he awoke Saturday morning, he said he could barely lift a basketball.
“I couldn’t shoot it 10 feet,” he said. “My bed’s big enough,” Love said. “Just a fluke thing. I’m pretty sure it’s just a 24-hour deal.”
