Cavs News: Kevin Love Out Tonight vs. Los Angeles Clippers

Kevin Love and Bryn Forbes

The Cleveland Cavaliers will look to defeat a team bound for the playoffs this evening when they face off against the Los Angeles Clippers, but they’ll be doing it without big man Kevin Love.

Prior to the game, it was reported that Love will miss Saturday’s game due to shoulder soreness.

Love has dealt with quite a few injuries this season. Most notably, toe surgery earlier in the 2018-19 season kept him out for the majority of the Cavs’ current campaign.

Nonetheless, when Love has been on the court, he has played very well. So far this season, Love is averaging 17.6 points, 11.2 rebounds, and 2.2 assists per game in 21 games.

It is unlikely that the injury is anything serious, but there is little incentive for Love to play if he is experiencing any physical discomfort. As the season comes to an end, the more losses the Cavs accrue, the higher their chances of picking at the top of the 2019 NBA Draft become.

For today’s game, David Nwaba will be moved into the starting lineup in Love’s absence.
