Kevin Love    F/C  Cavaliers

 

 

Kevin Love, who sat out Saturday with a hip injury, was back in action on Tuesday night and hit 6-of-13 shots, 4-of-5 3-pointers and just 1-of-3 free throws for 17 points, 12 rebounds and two assists in 28 minutes of Cleveland's 123-114 win over the Hawks. Love was a little iffy coming into this one, but felt good enough in warmups to give it a go. He looked very good, all things considered, and will have a quick turnaround, as the Cavs host the Lakers on Thursday night. Given the state of the Lakers, it's possible that Love could be iffy for this one, as well, but the expectation is that he'll be ready to play.

Love collected 17 points (6-13 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 1-3 FT), 12 rebounds, and two assists in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 123-114 win over the Hawks. Love returned from a one-game absence due to a minor hip injury, and he turned in his fifth double-double in his last six appearances. That gives Love 18 double-doubles through 27 showings this season, and Saturday's matchup against the 76ers is the only contest he has missed thus far. The return of backup big man Tristan Thompson (calf) likely won't affect Love much at all.

Kevin Love (hip) will play Tuesday vs. the Hawks. Love will be returning from a one-game absence, which will result in Ante Zizic heading back to the second unit, and with Tristan Thompson (calf) also getting back to the court tonight, Zizic could drop from the rotation entirely. The Hawks have been giving up big lines to opposing big men all year long, so make sure you've got Love active.

Love (hip) will play during Tuesday's game against the Hawks, John Michael of the Cavaliers Radio Network reports. Love was questionable heading into the contest, but has ultimately been cleared to play after testing the injured hip throughout the day. With his return, Channing Frye and Jeff Green will likely see reduced run.

If Kevin Love (hip) and Tristan Thompson (calf) "come through pregame workouts OK, they will play," according to Dave McMenamin of ESPN. The Cavs and Hawks tip-off at 7 pm EST, so we should have confirmation on the status of both players by around 5:30, well before roster locks in DFS. Coach Lue has already said Thompson will come off the bench upon his return. If Love can suit up on Tuesday, Ante Zizic would get bumped out of the starting lineup and likely out of the rotation altogether. Channing Frye and Jeff Green would also see fewer minutes off the bench.

Love (hip) is questionable for Tuesday's matchup against the Hawks. Love missed Saturday's game against the 76ers due to hip soreness, though it was reportedly just precautionary. That said, the injury is still seemingly giving him some discomfort, as he's being labeled as questionable for Tuesday's contest. More information on his status should emerge as the team ramps up their activity throughout the day. If he's sidelined again, Channing Frye and Jeff Green would probably see increased run once more.

Kevin Love (left hip flexor strain) and Tristan Thompson (calf) are listed as questionable in the game notes for Tuesday's matchup with the Hawks. This is only a game-notes designation, so we will have to wait for a reliable update from coach Ty Lue or Love himself. Love was a late scratch on Saturday after he experienced some soreness in his hip during warmups. The Cavs play the lowly Hawks on Tuesday, so Cleveland may choose to err on the side of caution. Their next game is Thursday vs. the Lakers. Channing Frye and Jeff Green would see an uptick in minutes if Love can't play.

Love is dealing with hip soreness and has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the 76ers, Joe Gabriele of Cavs.com reports. This is reportedly just precautionary, as Love was simply a little sore following pregame warmups. He'll likely be back for Tuesday's tilt with the Hawks, though tentatively consider him questionable for that contest. In Love's place Saturday, Ante Zizic will pick up the start at center, while Channing Frye should be in line for increased minutes off the bench.

Kevin Love finished with 20 points, seven rebounds and three assists over 26 minutes in Friday's loss at Indiana. Love hit 6-of-16 from the floor while finishing 2-of-7 from behind the arc. He didn't commit any personal fouls nor did he have any turnovers, and the only real complaint from fantasy owners might be his 6-of-10 night from the line. Love is averaging 24.2 points and 11.5 rebounds across his past six outings.
