Kevin Love went under the knife after only playing in four games this season. It was a tough blow for Love and the franchise considering the 30-year-old is now the best player on the team with the departure of LeBron James.
Love averaged 19.0 points, 13.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game before suffering the toe ailment. He was shooting 32.3 percent from the field, 29.2 percent from beyond the arc and 81.8 percent from the free-throw line. There’s really no point rushing Love back into the lineup. The Cavs currently have the worst record in the NBA at 8-30.
There are some who believe the Cavs might trade Kevin Love once he’s eligible to be moved on Jan. 24. Any team trading for Love would want to see him play first.
