Love has decided to withdraw from Team USA and won't play in the Olympics, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Love spent 10 days in Las Vegas preparing with Team USA for the Tokyo Olympics before deciding to withdraw. It's possible that Love's calf injury that held him out for most of the NBA season is still nagging him. With Love now out, along with Bradley Beal, Team USA will need to pick up two new players and get them ready in a short period of time.
Love (rest) has been ruled out for Sunday's game at Brooklyn. The 32-year-old will finish the season on the bench for the second straight contest after sitting out Friday's matchup with the Wizards. Love averaged 12.2 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 24.9 minutes in 25 games during the 2020-21 campaign for Cleveland.
Love (rest) will not play Friday against the Wizards. With just two games remaining in the regular season, the Cavs will sit Love in what's ultimately a meaningless game. The veteran forward is coming off of his best effort of the season Wednesday against Boston, when he posted 30 points (6-9 3Pt), 14 rebounds, three assists and two steals in 34 minutes.
Love tallied 30 points (10-16 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 14 rebounds, three assists and two steals in 33 minutes during Wednesday's 102-94 win over the Celtics. The 32-year-old returned from a one-game absence due to a bruised left knee to post his fifth double-double of the season. Love's scoring has been a roller coaster lately, as he's posted zero, 25, seven, 18, eight, and 30 points over his last six games, respectively. The 12-year forward will look to build on Wednesday's impressive performance Friday on the road against the Wizards.
Love (knee) is off the injury report for Wednesday's matchup against the Celtics. After missing Monday's game against the Pacers due to a bruised left knee, Love will be back Wednesday. This month, he's averaged 14.5 points, 9.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 29.0 minutes.
