Kevin Love Injury Reportedly Diagnosed as Broken Hand; Out 6-8 Weeks

Expo preview

Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love suffered a broken hand in Tuesday's game versus the Detroit Pistons, per Jason Lloyd of The Athletic.

Love was jostling for position on an entry pass under the basket during the first quarter but stooped over after failing to control the ball, grabbed his injured hand and jogged to the locker room to assess the injury. He will not return to the game and his status moving forward remains unclear. According to Dave McMenamin, the X-ray revealed a non-displaced in the fifth metacarpal of his left hand. ESPN's Brian Windhorst has a less than optimistic report.




Cavs head coach Tryonn Lue, who has overseen 11 defeats in Cleveland's past 16 games, added: "When it rains, it pours". With the Pistons up seven points with a little less than eight minutes to play, Kyle Korver hit a pair of 3-point shots on consecutive possessions around a Stanley Johnson free throw to pull Cleveland within two points. In 47 games, Love is averaging approximately 18 points and 10 rebounds per game on 46 percent shooting from the field.

"We're already limited in our bigs anyway, so we even get a lot smaller now, but at the end of the day, we hope for a speedy recovery for Kev, that he can get back on the floor as soon as he can, but it's a tough blow for us". Last season, Love was forced to miss the All-Star game after undergoing minor knee surgery on February 14.
