Kevin Love says illness included stomach problems and shortness of breathe; good to go now
Yesterday, half way through another mediocre start against a mediocre team, the Cavaliers found themselves in another hole. Having now dropped five of their last six games, Cavs fans have felt uncomfortable to their stomach. By halftime, a struggling Kevin Love literally felt that discomfort.
Kevin Love says he experienced stomach problems and shortness of breathe during the game. Nothing serious now. #Cavs

Along with the rest of the starters, Love wasn’t able to find any rhythm in his 18 minutes, shooting just 1-6 with four points and four rebounds. In a timeout in the second quarter, Lue and Love were supposedly having an argument. Love was getting set to check back into the game till Lue called him back to bench, when he ripped his jersey and subsequently left the game. He was then hospitalized for tests.
Less than 24 hours later, Love appears to be fine. He was able to complete practice today and he was taking extra shots till he was last person off the courts.
Love has secured seven double-doubles through his first 10 games this season. Expect him to get his eighth tomorrow in the Cavaliers’ rematch with the Milwaukee Bucks, against whom he has his season high in rebounding.
