Timberwolves' Kevin Love says he's still got a lot of work to do since injuring his hand in mid-October.

In an interview with Comcast Sportsnet, Love says he's "not too close" to 100 percent and still needs more conditioning on the court.

Since returning to the game after just five weeks, instead of eight as originally expected, Love is still getting comfortable handling the ball in his injured hand and wearing a brace.

Some would say Love had a good night Friday with 24 points and 13 rebounds, similar numbers he put up last year as an All-Star.

The Timberwolves take on the Golden State Warriors Saturday night.
