Cava­liers’ Love out at least six weeks

Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

CLEVE­LAND - Kevin Love won’t be able to help the Cava­liers down the stretch this sea­son. The All-Star for­ward will miss at least six weeks af­ter un­der­go­ing arthro­scopic surgery on his left knee Tues­day, a blow to the de­fend­ing NBA cham­pi­ons as they try to lock up the top seed in the East­ern Con­fer­ence and home-court ad­van­tage in the play­offs. Love, who is hav­ing his best sea­son with Cleve­land, had a “loose body” re­moved from his knee by or­tho­pe­dic sur­geon David Altchek in New York, the Cavs said. Altchek sur­gi­cally re­paired Love’s shoul­der dur­ing the 2015 play­offs. The Cavs said Love will be side­lined ap­prox­i­mately six weeks, which would have him re­turn­ing by April 1. The play­offs start later that month.
