Kevin Love is pulling out of Team USA because of uncertainty surrounding his status with the Timberwolves.
With Wolves actively shopping him around and so many teams interested and gearing up to pay a steep price, it makes perfect sense that he not play for Team USA and risk injury. Love wants out of Minnesota, so he's not going to do anything to jeopardize a trade going through. He's still going to have to wait a month until the Cavs can trade Andrew Wiggins, but he'll find something else to do in the meantime.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Nate Orchard (groin) is questionable for Monday's game against the Ravens.
Orchard has developed into a run-stuffing linebacker in the NFL, and will be missed if he cannot take the field in Week 12 against the Ravens, who will be looking to establish the run with Joe Flacco out of action. He has not built upon his sack abilities that he showcased in college at Utah, but the Browns are happy that he has developed into a run-stopper as their defense has been porous against running backs the past couple of seasons.
