Sorry Cleveland Cavaliers fans, the team is going to have to continue on in the playoffs without forward Kevin Love, who is projected to be out for four to six months.
The Cavs star suffered a dislocated shoulder on Sunday night (April 26), during Game 4 of their Eastern Conference playoff series against the Celtics.
Love underwent an MRI on Monday (April 27). His injury was officially listed as an acute anterior inferior glenohumeral dislocation with the corresponding ligament/labrum tearing and humeral head bone bruising.
It was Love’s first postseason, and first season with Cleveland, following a trade last summer with the Minnesota Timberwolves. He can opt out of his contract this summer and become a free agent.
Cleveland will face the Chicago Bulls-Milwaukee Bucks winner next week.
