Kevin Love is Out 6-8 Weeks with a Broken Hand

Jerry West's Blake Griffin trade invokes memories of Monta Ellis deal

Love exited the game in the first quarter after playing just five minutes because of a left hand injury. He was diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture in his fifth metacarpal, according to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Cavaliers say there is no timetable for his return, but Brian Windhorst of ESPN is reporting the injury will sideline Love for six to eight weeks. No matter if you personally like him, there's a really good reason his teams have reached the NBA Finals in seven straight seasons.

Love dealt with a broken right hand as a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2009. He underwent surgery on his knee in February 2017 and missed six weeks.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are struggling on defense, and never was it more clear than on Tuesday night when Andre Drummond and the trade-depleted Pistons that didn't have Blake Griffin yet managed to score 125 points in a win over the Cavs.

As solid as Frye's been, he won't average 18 points per game, and neither will Crowder.

In a touch of irony, James was asked at shootaround what he would consider a successful regular season for the Cavs. "He's going to be out for quite a while - maybe two months - so it's just tough", James said after the loss in Detroit. "If we can do that, we'll put ourselves in a position to be ready for the postseason".

Wade missed Friday's victory over IN and Sunday's win over the Pistons. Two consecutive 3-pointers by Korver cut the Pistons' lead to 103-101 with 6:55 to play.

LeBron James, the leader of the Cavs, realises that Love won't be easy to replace. He said on January 5, after having played in just one game so far, that he was playing at about "80 percent".

Paul George had 28 points for Oklahoma City, but zero in the fourth quarter.

The Heat rank third in three pointers allowed per game (25.5) while the Cavaliers rank last (31.8). Written on the bottom of Wade's shoes was "My Guardian Angel Henry Thomas".

Griffin is expected to join the Pistons for Tuesday's game against Cleveland (29-19).

Drummond revealed that he's already spoken to Griffin and can't wait to get started. Wade (21,800) moved past Larry Bird (21,791) for 32nd place on the NBA's career scoring list.
