Kevin Love finished with 32 points (11-20 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 11 rebounds and eight assists in 37 minutes during Wednesday's victory over the Nuggets.
After missing Saturday's game, Love has returned in a big way, totaling 63 points and 21 rebounds over his last two games. As long as his health is not an issue in the second half, expect Love to continue playing at an elite level making him one of the top fantasy options no matter the position. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Fernando Rodney has hit a recent rough patch, but said he's put it behind him.
Rodney's closing job is in danger right now, as they 38-year old has already blown a save and has given up in seven runs 3 1/3 innings. Carson Smith could be next in line for saves should Rodney be removed from the job, though Yoervis Medina is another option in the back of the bullpen. As a closer, Rodney will have to have a short term memory and put the issues behind him, as he has a great track record and the stuff is still there for him to succeed in the ninth inning.
