It’s no secret the Cavs aren’t doing well, and Kevin Love being out of the rotation doesn’t help either. On Friday, Cleveland Cavaliers all-star forward Kevin Love underwent surgery to address his persisting big toe issues.
Kevin Love Injury Update
Love will be out for at least six weeks which can’t be good for the struggling Cavaliers after Lebron’s departure to Los Angeles and the Cavaliers 0-6 start to the season. This all comes in addition to the Cavaliers firing head coach Tyronn Lue after starting the season with six straight losses.
Kevin Love Stats
Kevin Love’s injury didn’t just occur during a recent game, but rather the first preseason game. His big toe has been bothering him since and he tried to play through it but the pain became intolerable. In a way, we all could tell something was wrong, Kevin Love’s stats have been underwhelming. Love was averaging 19 points and 13.5 rebounds, which at first sight might seem impressive and effective, but shooting at just 32 percent leaves this to be highly inefficient for a team of young players trying to find their groove.
Kevin Love Contract
The Kevin Love contract was signed last summer for whopping $120 million, just after Lebron announced the end to his current tenure in Cleveland.
