UPDATE: Kobe has been cleared from his concussion and can suit up tonight against Minnesota. The loss of Love plus the addition of Kobe makes the Lakers an even more difficult hurdle than they were just a few hours ago.

According to Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune, Kevin Love will miss tonight’s matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers. This has nothing to do with the injury that occurred in last nights game against the Clippers. Love will be missing because he has become ill and is experiencing flu-like symptoms. No word on who will start in his absence but the best bet would be Derrick Williams. Anthony Randolph has also been activated to help fill in minutes off the bench. Check back for any updates.
