CLEVELAND (AP) — Cavaliers ahead Kevin Love will sit out the closing video game in advance of the All-Star crack to get even more relaxation following foot surgical treatment.
Love has not experienced any setbacks since returning previous 7 days to participate in for the first time since owning the operation in November. The five-time All-Star has performed in two video games.
The Cavaliers have been happy with his restoration and really do not want to push items. Right after dealing with the Nets on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time), Cleveland won’t participate in all over again until eventually Feb. 21 (Feb. 22, PHL time).
The 30-year-previous Love performed just six minutes versus Washington in his first motion since Oct. 24 (Oct. 25, PHL time). He rested the following evening at Indiana, then performed nearly 16 minutes on Monday (Tuesday, PHL time) versus the Knicks, scoring 14 factors with nine rebounds.
Love initially wounded his foot in Cleveland’s closing exhibition video game. He is averaging 15.7 factors and 10.7 rebounds in six video games.
