Cavs News: Kevin Love to Make Long-Awaited Return Tonight vs. Washington Wizards

Kevin Love Cavs

Kevin Love will play tonight when the Cleveland Cavaliers visit the Washington Wizards.

It’s the first time that Love has played since Oct. 24 in a loss to the Brooklyn Nets. His nagging toe injury required surgery, which has kept him out for the last 50 games.

It remains to be seen how coach Larry Drew will handle Love’s minutes, but the five-time All-Star won’t be coming off the bench. The power forward will immediately step into his role as part of the starting lineup.

It’s safe to say that Cleveland is happy to have Love back. Not only is he the team’s best player and brightest star, but the team has gone 11-39 in his absence.

In the four games he has played this season, Love is averaging 19.0 points, 13.5 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game.
