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.
Love (shoulder) is listed as out for Friday's game against the Warriors.
This will be Love's fourth straight absence with lingering shoulder soreness, and with just two games left in the regular season for Cleveland, it would be a surprise if Love played again. Larry Nance will likely draw another start Friday.
Love (shoulder) is out Thursday against the Kings.
Left shoulder soreness will keep Love out for a third straight game. Larry Nance figures to draw another start at power forward.
Love (shoulder) is unavailable for Monday's game against Phoenix, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.
Love is set to miss his second straight matchup due to shoulder soreness. David Nwaba appears in line for another start at power forward in Love's absence.
Love (shoulder) is considered questionable for Monday's game against Phoenix.
Love was held out of Saturday's game against the Clippers with a sore shoulder, and the Cavs will wait until closer to game-time to update his status. Since the All-Star break, Love has been averaging 18.3 points and 11.4 rebounds per game, though he's shooting just 40.7 percent form the floor.
Love will not play in Saturday's matchup with the Clippers due to left shoulder soreness, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.
Love was not on the injury report heading into the game, so this this late scratch is a little surprising. His absence should free up playing time spread between David Nwaba, Larry Nance, and Marquese Chriss in some fashion. His next chance to return will be Monday against the Suns.
Love posted 18 points (7-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds and one assist across 35 minutes in the Cavaliers' 116-110 loss to the Spurs on Thursday.
Love's scoring total was second only to that of Collin Sexton's on the night for the Cavs, as the veteran produced his fourth straight double-digit scoring effort. The 30-year-old has been highly productive throughout March on the rebounding front as well. Love has hauled in no fewer than eight boards in eight consecutive contests, and he's churned out seven double-digit rebounding performances during the month as well.
Love scored 10 points (3-13 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT) while adding 11 rebounds, four assists and a steal in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 116-106 loss to the Celtics.
He also committed five turnovers, but despite his shooting woes Love still put together his 12th double-double in 20 games this season. The veteran big should stay fairly productive over the Cavs' final seven contests, although a rest day or two remains a possibility.
Love scored a team-high 20 points (8-21 FG, 4-11 3Pt) while adding 19 rebounds, three assists and a block in 32 minutes during Sunday's 127-105 loss to the Bucks.
The 19 boards tied his season high, and Love now has eight double-doubles in 15 games since returning to the lineup in early February. The 30-year-old has one year remaining on his current contract, so he's essentially playing for potential offseason suitors -- although the fact that he hasn't played more than 60 games in any of the last three seasons could temper any interest in the five-time All-Star.
Love scored a team-high 22 points (8-14 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-3 FT) while adding eight rebounds and an assist in 33 minutes during Friday's 110-108 loss to the Clippers.
It's just the second time in his last six games Love has dropped 20 or more points, and the Cavs continue to monitor his workload and give him frequent rest. The veteran forward is still capable of posting strong numbers on any given night, but with the team having two back-to-back sets on its remaining schedule, he's best deployed as a DFS option.
Love (head) is not on the injury report ahead of Friday's matchup against the Clippers.
Love left Wednesday's game during the third quarter as the result of an apparent head injury, but it appears he's fine. He should be expected to play a full complement of minutes Friday.
Love didn't return to action after exiting in the third quarter of Wednesday's 107-102 win over the Bucks with an apparent head injury, the Associated Press reports.
Love collided with the Bucks' Eric Bledsoe at one point in the second quarter, but was cleared to start the second half. However, he saw limited action before heading to the locker room for further evaluation, ending the night with six points (1-10 FG, 1-9 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and 10 boards in 18 minutes. The Cavaliers didn't provide an update on Love's condition after the contest, so it's not known if he's dealing with any sort of concussion symptoms or was merely held out for the rest of the contest as a precaution. Expect the team to provide more clarity on Love's situation at shootaround Friday, but his status for the team's game against the Clippers that same day is muddled for now.
Love (undisclosed) is questionable to return to Wednesday's game against the Bucks, Angel Gray of Fox Sports Ohio reports.
Love left during the first half after banging his head in a collision, but returned briefly to start the second-half before leaving a second time. It's unclear what exactly Love is dealing with or whether he'll be able to return Wednesday. If he's unable to, a more detailed report about his availability should come out prior to Friday's game against the Clippers.
Love (back) will play Wednesday against the Bucks, Fred McLeod of Fox Sports Ohio reports.
A sore back prevented Love from playing Monday, but it'll be just a one-game absence for the big man. He'll presumably re-join the starting lineup. Across his past nine appearances, Love is averaging 20.3 points, 11.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 28.7 minutes.
Love (back) is questionable for Wednesday's matchup against the Bucks.
A lower back contusion prevented Love from playing Monday, though it's possible he'll need just one game off to recover. More information may arrive following Wednesday's morning shootaround.
Love (back) will not play Monday against Detroit, Rod Beard of the Detroit News reports.
Love took a hard fall during Saturday's game against the Mavs, and he'll be held out with lingering soreness in his lower-back. The Cavs are likely just being cautious with their best player, but Love's absence will once again leave Cleveland shorthanded up front. Last time Love sat out, it was David Nwaba who got the starting nod in his place.
