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
Matt Duffy went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run against Milwaukee on Tuesday.
Duffy has a five-game hit streak going and has homered twice in those five games. His .361 BABIP will tail off, but he could still hit .255-.260, which is about average in mixed leagues. The real question is whether he can keep hitting for power. His HR/FB rate won’t hold, but he’s also hitting very few fly balls so far. If he elevates the ball a bit more, he could continue to provide some pop. Analysis: Brett Talley
