Adelman Haunted by String of Injuries?
Maybe because he’s been through this before, Wolves coach Rick Adelman came prepared with some dark humor Thursday.
He suggested that knuckle pushups — the cause of two broken bones in Kevin Love’s right hand — be banned.
“Out of the repertoire for sure,” he deadpanned. “In fact, all pushups. Anything with the hand.”
He expressed his shock at hearing the news on Love, then wondered whether the coach himself was to blame for the team having to start the regular season without either Love or Ricky Rubio.
“I’ve had so many injuries to good players, I’m starting to think maybe it’s me,” Adelman said. “Houston, we didn’t have very good luck, and now we have the same thing here.”
