Cavs aren't expecting Love back any time soon.
A toe injury could keep Cleveland Cavaliers' All-Star forward Kevin Love sidelined for more than a month, according to a report by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Love, 30, has missed Cleveland's last two games because of the injury but he has reportedly been dealing with discomfort in his left foot since the pre-season.
In four games this season, Love leads the team in points and rebounds per game with 19 and 13.5, respectively. However, he is shooting just 32% from the field, including 29% from behind the three-point line. Love inked a four-year, $120 million contract this past summer to stay with the Cavs after LeBron signed with the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Cavs, 0-6, have already fired head coach Tyronn Lue and will be moving forward with Larry Drew as the interim coach as they prepare to host the 2-3 Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night, followed by a home game against the 4-1 Denver Nuggets on Thursday.
