Top Kevin Love News

  • Heat's Kevin Love: Back with Miami

    Love agreed to a two-year, $3.7 million deal with a player option for 2024-25 to return to the Heat on Friday, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports.

    The second year of the deal will be a player option. Love made 21 appearances for the Heat last season which included 17 starts. The veteran forward averaged 7.7 points, 5.7 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.4 three-pointers per game, and he figures to provide similar production during the 2023-24 campaign.

  • Heat's Kevin Love: Modest production in loss

    Love totaled three points (1-4 FG, 1-4 3Pt), two rebounds, two blocks and one steal over 14 minutes during Monday's 94-89 loss to the Nuggets in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

    After not playing in Game 1 of the Finals, Love started the next four contests but provided modest production, posting 6.8 points and 4.5 rebounds in 17.5 minutes. After the veteran's surprise departure from Cleveland, he latched on with Miami and carved out a pretty consistent role right away. Love is set to be a free agent this offseason, and it's unclear if the two sides have any mutual interest in running it back next season.

  • Heat's Kevin Love: Starting Game 2

    Love will start Sunday's Game 2 matchup against the Nuggets, Jared Greenberg of NBA on TNT reports.

    Love returns to the starting lineup ahead of Caleb Martin, who is available despite a non-COVID-19-related illness. Love has not played in the last three contests for the Heat and saw just 12.4 minutes per game in his five starts against Boston in the Eastern Conference Finals.

  • Heat's Kevin Love: Won't start Saturday

    Love is not in the starting lineup for Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Celtics on Saturday, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Love moves to the bench in favor of Caleb Martin, who will get the nod at power forward. The veteran will come off the bench for the first time since Game 2 of the first-round series against the Bucks. He's averaging 6.9 points and 5.8 rebounds per game in the playoffs.

  • Heat's Kevin Love: Good to go for Game 4

    Love (lower leg) is available for Tuesday's Game 4 against Boston, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Love has been upgraded from probable to available Tuesday despite suffering a left lower-leg muscle strain in Game 3. The veteran big man has started in the first three contests of the series but has yet to surpass 16 minutes.

  • Heat's Kevin Love: Probable for Game 4

    Coach Erik Spoelstra said Monday that Love is probable for Tuesday's Game 4 against the Celtics due to a left lower-leg muscle strain, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Love exited Sunday's Game 3 win in the first quarter due to his injury and didn't return. Although he was sidelined down the stretch, it seems likely he'll be able to suit up Tuesday as the Heat attempt to sweep Boston. The 34-year-old had a limited impact over the series' first two games, averaging 4.0 points and 5.5 rebounds in 15.5 minutes.

  • Heat's Kevin Love: Questionable to return Sunday

    Love (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's Game 4 matchup with the Celtics.

    Love had an excellent start to the game, posting five quick points and punishing the Celtics' smaller starting lineup. However, he appeared to be hobbled for many positions before eventually leaving for the locker room with an apparent ankle injury. The veteran big man was able to return to the bench in a timely manner and seems to be fairing well, jogging on the sideline and getting shots up with teammates at halftime. The Heat will be starting Caleb Martin in the second half instead of Love, making his return unlikely despite no official word from the team.
