Kevin Love could miss more than a month with toe damage
The Cleveland Cavaliers are preparing for the strong possibility that five-time All-Star forward Kevin Love
could miss more than a month with an injured toe on his left foot, league sources told ESPN.
The Cavaliers and Love are consulting with doctors early this week to consider the limited short-term solutions
available, but intense pain and the combination of an 0-6 start make it less logical for Love to push through the injury.
Rest would be the solution for Love’s toe injury, which has persisted since the preseason.
He marked another four-year, $120 million get this past summer.
The loss of Love, 30, could send the Cavaliers into a considerably more profound winding, abandoning them without the group’s most dependable hostile player.
Love has missed the Cavaliers’ previous two misfortunes. The damage seems to have influenced his execution; he is averaging 19 points and 13.5 bounce back yet is shooting 32 percent from the field and 29 percent on 3-pointers.
Cleveland let go mentor Ty Lue on Sunday, supplanting him on a between time premise with aide Larry Drew.
