Minnesota's All-Star power forward Kevin Love will miss Wednesday's game against the Lakers because of flu-like symptoms. It's expected that Derrick Williams will start in his place.
Love has also been dealing with rib and back injuries, but it's an illness that's holding him out in this one. He played against the Clippers Tuesday, but only saw 25 minutes and had an uncharacteristically unproductive game, putting up just 10 points and seven rebounds.
On the season, Love is averaging 24.5 points and 13.8 rebounds per game.
