MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (KNSI) Kevin Love says he understands the skepticism about the source of his broken right hand. The Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star, however, insists the story about knuckle push-ups gone wrong is true.

Love spoke publicly Wednesday for the first time since his injury, calling it ``pretty much a freak accident.''

He's heard all the conspiracy theories but said he really did get hurt during a pre-practice workout at his home on Oct. 17.

Love is supposed to be out for another four to six weeks. He said he's bracing for the longer end of the timetable, figuring a quicker return would simply be a bonus.

The Timberwolves open the season without him on Friday at home against Sacramento.
