Cavaliers' Kevin Love: Scores 17 points, adds seven dimes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love posted 17 points (5-16 FG, 2-13 3Pt, 5-5 FT), eight rebounds, seven assists and one steal in 37 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the Bulls.

Over his previous three outings, Love has put up 22.3 points, 12.7 boards, 3.7 dimes and 3.7 triples in 38.1 minutes per game. Numbers like that are good for top 50 value in nine-category leagues. His shot wasn't falling in this one, going 2-of-13 from beyond the arc, but he did put his facilitating on display with seven assists in 37 minutes of play. The biggest concern for fantasy owners regarding Love is his potential availability down the stretch. He'll produce as long as he's on the court, but with the Cavaliers near the bottom of the Eastern Conference, concerns of potential rest days grow for a 31-year old veteran on a rebuilding team.

Cavaliers' Kevin Love: Big minutes in back-to-back set
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love finished with 14 points (3-12 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 7-8 FT), 18 rebounds and three assists across 40 minutes Sunday in the Cavaliers' 132-129 overtime win over the Spurs.

Love overcame an 0-for-8 start from the field to claim his 23rd double-double of the season, largely thanks to his typically dead-eye shooting from the charity stripe. Perhaps more significant than Love's statistical output was the fact that he played 40 minutes just one night after logging 37 minutes in Saturday's 104-102 win over the Nuggets. The Cavaliers have frequently held Love out for one half of back-to-back sets this season, so the team's decision to roll him out for big minutes in both games may imply more confidence in his health. Cleveland has another back-to-back set next weekend as part of a three-game week, so Love's fantasy managers will have to sweat it out again in the hope he suits up both Friday in Charlotte and Saturday in Atlanta.

Cavaliers' Kevin Love: Leads Cavaliers to victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love totaled 27 points (9-17 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 4-5 FT), six rebounds and three assists in 37 minutes during Saturday's 104-102 victory over the Nuggets.

Love scored at least 20 points for the fourth straight game, a span in which he has also connected on 17 triples. He has been putting up third-round value over the past two weeks, a welcome sight for those that took a risk on him during the draft period. There is a decent chance he misses Sunday's game based on what we have seen thus far. Unfortunately, the Cavaliers also have a back-to-back next week meaning he may only play two games during what will be the fantasy playoffs for a lot of people.

Cavaliers' Kevin Love: Scores 26 points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love recorded 26 points (9-17 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 14 rebounds, five assists and one block across 37 minutes in Wednesday's 112-106 loss to the Celtics.

With Tristan Thompson (knee) and Andre Drummond (calf) both out, Love generated his best scoring output in eight games. This was his 22nd double-double of the season and his best rebound effort in 19 contests. Love is always a must-start, but if either Thompson or Drummond miss Saturday's tilt versus the Nuggets, the 31-year-old could gain some extra usage and become a more appealing option for daily-fantasy formats.

Cavaliers' Kevin Love: Drops 22 in loss to Jazz
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love scored 22 points (7-15 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 2-3 FT) while adding nine rebounds, two assists and a steal in 32 minutes during Monday's 126-113 loss to the Jazz.

Forced to fill in at center with Andre Drummond (calf) and Tristan Thompson (knee) both sidelined, Love wasn't able to slow Rudy Gobert down much, but he did at least manage to tie his season high in made three-pointers. Since missing a game in late February due to a sore Achilles, Love has averaged 16.4 points, 10.2 boards, 4.2 assists and 2.4 threes over the last five contests.

Cavaliers' Kevin Love: Fills stat sheet in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love posted 20 points (6-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 7-8 FT), 12 rebounds, seven assists and one steal in 37 minutes during Saturday's 113-104 loss to the Pacers.

Love notched his second double-double in his last four games, and he has dished out at least four assists three times during that stretch. Love is averaging 15.0 points and 10.5 rebounds during that four-game period and has been one of Cleveland's most productive players all season long even if he hasn't posted the same numbers he had in the LeBron James era.

Cavaliers' Kevin Love: Quiet in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love amassed 10 points (4-11 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and two steals in 27 minutes during Friday's 116-104 loss to New Orleans.

Love scored just 10 points in what was an underwhelming performance. Despite the absence of Andre Drummond (calf), Love failed to capitalize on what could have been a productive evening. He is likely to miss a few games down the stretch which does limit his upside. However, he appears relatively healthy and should still be able to return mid-round value on a per-game basis the rest of the way.

Cavaliers' Kevin Love: Double-double against Heat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love (Achilles) scored 17 points (4-13 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 7-8 FT) while adding 14 rebounds, four assists and two blocks in 38 minutes during Monday's 125-119 overtime win over the Heat.

While rookie Kevin Porter led the way with 30, six other Cavs scored between 13 and 17 points on the night. It's Love's first double-double since Feb. 3 and 20th of the season. Although the 31-year-old has mostly been able to stay on the court, he's struggled through some health issues that have cut into his production recently.

Cavaliers' Kevin Love: Starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love (Achilles) will start Monday against Miami, Spence Davies of Basketball Insiders reports.

Love was considered probable coming in, so there wasn't much question about his status after he was held out of Saturday's game.

February 23, 2020 05:56 PM
Cavaliers' Kevin Love: Expected to play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love (Achilles) is listed as probable for Monday's game against Miami.

Love has been bothered by a sore Achilles over the last few days, and he was held out of Saturday's loss to the Heat. However, the Cavs expect to have the big man back in the lineup Monday night. In his first game after the break, Love struggled in a win over Washington, finishing with just nine points, one rebound and one board.

Cavaliers' Kevin Love: Ruled out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love won't play in Saturday's game against Miami due to Achilles soreness, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Love will miss the second part of the Cavaliers back-to-back due to a sore Achilles. He's been hampered by the issue for the past couple of weeks, though it's unclear if the team expects him to miss additional time going forward. Look for an update on Love's availability to come ahead of Monday's rematch with Miami.

Cavaliers' Kevin Love: Off injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love (Achilles) is not listed on the injury report for Friday's game against the Wizards.

Love missed the final game prior to the All-Star break due to an Achilles injury, but he's good to go after getting more than a week to rest and recover. Across 46 games this season, the big man is averaging 17.7 points, 9.8 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 31.3 minutes.

Cavaliers' Kevin Love: Won't play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love (Achilles) will not play Wednesday against the Hawks, Sam Amico of SI.com reports.

Love picked up an Achilles injury during Sunday's loss to the Clippers, and while coach John Beilein deemed the issue a "mild" one, it will cost the veteran big man at least one game. Larry Nance is expected to start in place of Love, whose next chance to take the court will now come after the All-Star break.

Cavaliers' Kevin Love: Tabbed questionable Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love is questionable for Wednesday's contest against Atlanta due to an Achilles injury, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Love is apparently banged up following Sunday's loss against the Clippers, where he logged 26 minutes of action and posted 10 points and nine rebounds. With one game left before the All-Star break, the Cavaliers may ultimately elect to rest their star forward and give him extended period to recover from his reported Achilles injury. Larry Nance and Alfonzo McKinnie could see increase run if indeed Love is kept out Wednesday.

Cavaliers' Kevin Love: Big double-double in OT loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love scored a game-high 33 points (12-20 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 5-5 FT) while adding 13 rebounds, six assists and a block in 41 minutes during Monday's 139-134 overtime loss to the Knicks.

In what might have been his last home game for Cleveland before he gets moved at the trade deadline, Love put on a good show and gave the Cavs their last lead of the game with 1:19 left in OT, but he didn't get enough help from his teammates to pull out a win. The double-double was his second straight and 18th of the season.

Cavaliers' Kevin Love: Scores 20, sinks six treys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love chipped in 20 points (7-11 FG, 6-8 3Pt), seven rebounds and two assists in 24 minutes during Monday's 115-100 win over the Pistons.

Love has scored at least 20 in four of the last five games, and he matched his season high with six treys in this one. He's drained 21 threes across the last five tilts, and despite his desire to be dealt to a contender, Love continues to give his best effort for the Cavs -- providing fantasy owners with solid contributions in scoring, rebounding, assists and three-point shooting.

Cavaliers' Kevin Love: Double-doubles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love had 20 points (8-16 FG, 4-8 3PT), 11 rebounds, two assists and one steal in 33 minutes during Saturday's 118-106 loss against the Bulls.

Love has had three double-doubles during this month and has experienced an uptick in his scoring figures, scoring 20 or more points in three of his last four contests. The veteran power forward will try to extend his solid scoring run Monday at Detroit.

January 19, 2020 11:12 AM
Cavaliers' Kevin Love: Scores 29 points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love had 29 points (10-20 FG, 4-8 3PT, 5-5 FT), six assists, five rebounds, one steal and one block in 34 minutes during Saturday's 118-116 loss at Chicago.

Love has topped the 20-point plateau thrice during his last six games and while he is no longer the double-double machine he was during this prime years, it's worth noting Love has been doing a good job on the glass with at least nine boards in five of those six contests. He will try to extend his solid run of form Monday against the Knicks.

Cavaliers' Kevin Love: Resting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love won't play Tuesday against the Clippers due to rest purposes, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports.

Love will take a seat for the second half of Cleveland's back-to-back. Larry Nance (knee) is expected to return to action Tuesday and could take Love's spot at power forward in the starting lineup.

January 14, 2020 04:12 PM
Cavaliers' Kevin Love: Scores team-high 21 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love contributed 21 points (7-17 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 11 rebounds and three assists in 33 minutes during Monday's 128-99 loss to the Lakers.

Love and the Cavaliers got off to a hot start, but both were unable to maintain their early dominance by the time the third quarter concluded. The game ended in a blowout, though Love was able to record another double-double prior to garbage time. There are still murmurings that Love may be moved prior to the Feb. 6 deadline, but until then, fantasy managers can expect performances like this whenever he suits up. Though he's currently healthy, Love has played both ends of a back-to-back set just one time in five instances this season, so it wouldn't be surprising if Cleveland chose to rest him Tuesday against the Clippers. The Cavaliers conclude their road trip with another back-to-back set this weekend (Friday in Memphis, Saturday in Chicago).
