Cavs' Kevin Love Breaks Left Hand; Expected To Miss 6-8 Weeks

HONOLULU HI – OCTOBER 4 Blake Griffin

Forward Kevin Love could miss six-to-eight weeks after suffering an injury Tuesday evening against the Detroit Pistons, according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst.

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue described his communication with team owner Dan Gilbert as "not a lot, just every now and then".

The 29-year-old power forward was named to his fifth career All-Star game this year after averaging 18.2 points and 9.6 rebounds per game on the season. "Blake Griffin is one of the NBA's elite players, and when you get an opportunity to add that kind of talent, you take it". With the Pistons up seven points with a little less than eight minutes to play, Kyle Korver hit a pair of 3-point shots on consecutive possessions around a Stanley Johnson free throw to pull Cleveland within two points.

The game was tied at 95-all with 7 1/2 minutes remaining. Griffin should alleviate that concern.




In my experience with broken hands in the National Basketball Association, this will take him out for at least a month. Andre Drummond had 21 points and 22 rebounds. "He's a big part of this team, and it's just got to be the next-man-up mentality".

Cleveland has now won its last three meetings against the Pistons.

The last thing the Cavaliers want is Kevin Love being out for a long period of time.

Cavs reserve guard Dwyane Wade missed Sunday's game for personal reasons but could rejoin the team on Tuesday.
