Love hurt himself on this play by Kelly Olynyk durign Game 4 of the Cavs first round series with the Celtics:
Love went from ‘hopefully’ out two to three weeks, to “highly unlikely” to return this postseason and now officially out a quarter to half a year. This 4-6 month timetable will have him return to basketball activities by the end of August at the latest. With Love’s free agency coming up, a lot of questions about his health and price tag are left in the air.
