VIDEO: Kevin Love dislocates his shoulder against Celtics

UPDATE: Kevin Love, wearing a sling, spoke to reporters postgame. He wasn't pleased with Kelly Olynyk, to say the least.

Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love suffered an injury in the first quarter on Sunday in Game 4 of their first-round series against the Boston Celtics. Battling with Celtics big man Kelly Olynyk for rebounding position, Love's arm got tangled up and dislocated his shoulder.

Love immediately ran off the court to the locker room and will not return. It's obviously horrible news for the Cavaliers if he has to miss any games as the playoffs continue. The team announced that he will travel back to Cleveland on Sunday afternoon and be evaluated in the next 24 hours.
