Report: Kevin Love and Darius Garland questionable for Friday’s contest vs. Pelicans

Andre Drummond and Kevin Love

There was a hopeful development on Thursday for the struggling Cleveland Cavaliers, as Kevin Love was able to participate in practice.

The University of California, Los Angeles product has been out for almost the entire season thus far due to a calf injury he sustained in late December.

There doesn’t appear to be a timetable for his return to game action at this point, and he is listed as questionable tomorrow against the New Orleans Pelicans along with guard Darius Garland.

Even without Love, the Cavs started the season off well, but have recently fallen on hard times. They had a 10-game losing streak in February, and they currently have a 14-22 record, which is 13th in the 15-team Eastern Conference.

With the NBA’s play-in tournament extended to involve the seventh through 10th place teams in each conference, a brief hot streak by Cleveland could give it a real shot at returning to the postseason.

At age 32, Love should have plenty left in the tank to help make a Cavs playoff appearance a reality this spring.
