Love has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against Charlotte due to rest purposes. Love returned to game action and logged 13 minutes off the bench in Sunday night's matchup, but he'll be held out for Cleveland's final regular-season game. He averaged 17.0 points, 10.9 rebounds and 2.2 assists over 22 contests during the 2018-2019 campaign.
Love saw only 13 minutes of action in Sunday's loss to the Spurs. The Cavs were paying tribute to Channing Frye, so Love allowed Frye to take his place in the starting lineup, but the reduced workload was a bit of a surprise, even after Love had missed the previous four games. He took only four shots and finished with five points, four rebounds and a pair of assists. The Cavs, who've already clinched a bottom-three record, finish up the regular season Tuesday against Charlotte, and Love's status for that contest is yet to be announced.
Love will come off the bench for Sunday's game against San Antonio, Joe Vardon of The Athletic reports. Love is available to play, but he'll cede his spot in the starting five to Channing Frye, who's playing his final home game in Cleveland before he retires at season's end. It's unclear if Love's workload will be impacted by the move to the bench.
Love will be available for Sunday's game against San Antonio, Cavs play-by-play man Fred McLeod reports. Love has missed the last four games with a sore shoulder, but he was removed from the injury report Saturday and will be in the starting lineup Sunday, despite the fact that the Cavs have nothing to play for, having already clinched the worst record in the league.
Love (shoulder) is off the injury report for Sunday's game against the Spurs. Love has missed the past four games due to left shoulder soreness. His absence on the injury report indicates he's expected to play and start Sunday's game. Over his past four appearances, he's averaged 17.5 points, 11.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 32.3 minutes.
