The Timberwolves will get Kevin Love back Tuesday night when they travel to Detroit for a game against the Pistons.

Love missed the blowout loss to the Heat Saturday night at Target Center because he was with his family following the death of his grandmother.

Meanwhile, the NBA has fined Wolves forward Corey Brewer $5,000 for flopping against the Heat, according to FOX Sports North. The video of the flop clearly shows Brewer acting like LeBron James gave him a violent shove. James was called for a foul on the play, so Brewer gets an A+ from us for some truly award-winning acting.

It's Brewer's second flopping violation of the season. His first came in a game against the Knicks.

The NBA instituted a flopping penalty for the 2012-13 season. A third flopping violating would cost Brewer $10,000, a fourth $15,000 and a fifth $30,000.
