Cavs News: Kevin Love to Miss Significant Amount of Time With Fractured Left Hand

BREAKING: Kevin Love to Miss Significant Amount of Time With Latest Injury

The Cleveland Cavaliers are looking to win their third straight game, but that’s going to be a whole lot harder with Kevin Love off the floor.

During the first quarter of Tuesday’s game versus the Detroit Pistons, Love left the court and headed to the locker room with trainer Steve Spiro to have his left hand examined.

It was later reported that X-rays had revealed a non-displaced fracture in his fifth metacarpal.

To make matters worse, initial reports indicate that the All-Star big man is likely to miss six to eight weeks with the injury.

Back in 2009, Love broke the fourth metacarpal in his left hand and missed 18 games as a result. He also broke the third and fourth metacarpals in his right hand during the 2012-13 season.

This is certainly not the news the Cavs need as they try and battle their way out of a month-long slump, but they will have to try and find a way to overcome Love’s absence.
