CLEVELAND– Kevin Love and Kyle Korver are both listed as questionable for Monday night’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks. The two were both present at the Cavaliers’ morning shootaround.
Love has been out since he fractured a bone in his left hand on Jan. 30 against the Detroit Pistons. The original timeline for Love to return to game action was eight weeks, meaning he is slightly ahead of that initial prognosis.
This season, the 29-year-old is averaging 17.9 points and 9.4 rebounds.
“Anytime we can get another body and then you add the fact that it’s Kevin Love, it definitely helps our team out tremendously,” LeBron James said this morning. “It brings in 20 (points) and 10 (rebounds), someone who’s been in it with me for the last four years, so I know what to expect out of him every night he steps on the floor when he’s in uniform. Definitely helps me out and helps the team out as well.”
Korver missed Saturday night’s game against Chicago due to a personal matter. He remains listed as questionable as well with right foot soreness.
Definitely listed out for Monday night’s game are Rodney Hood, Larry Nance Jr., Cedi Osman and Tristan Thompson. Of course the big Cavaliers news of the day is that the team will also have to adjust as head coach Tyronn Lue steps down “for the time being” to deal with health issues of his own.
