Kevin Love missed full contract drills for the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday and could be sidelined when the reigning NBA champions play host to Phoenix on Thursday. Kyle Korver, Cleveland's newly acquired 3-point specialist, could make his first start for his new club if Love's sore back keeps him out of the lineup against the Suns. "He went through half the practice," Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said.

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James, point guard Kyrie Irving and forward/center Kevin Love will all play in Monday's game against the Golden State Warriors, per ESPN. What It Means: There had been some talk that Cleveland may rest players tonight, but ultimately it looks like they're going to have their usual lineup on the floor in a rematch of last year's finals. Our models project James for 26.6 points, 7.9 rebounds, 8.2 assists and 1.6 steals in 37.6 minutes of action tonight, making him our third-ranked fantasy option on the slate. Source:...

Cavaliers notebook: LeBron James, Kyrie Irving named East starters for All-Star Game; Kevin Love likely to be picked as reserve

CLEVELAND: LeBron James and Kyrie Irving will again be teammates Feb. 19 during All-Star weekend. Kevin Love, meanwhile, still has an excellent chance to join them. James and Irving were both elected Thursday to start the All-Star game for the Eastern Conference. It is James’ 13th appearance — all starts — while Irving has made the team for the fourth time in his six seasons. James led all players in voting and will become the fifth player in NBA history to start at least 13 All-Star games, joining Kobe Bryant (18), Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (14), Bob Cousy (13) and Michael Jordan (13)....

Kevin Love out on Thursday, James Jones starting for Cleveland

Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love (back) has been ruled out for Thursday against the Phoenix Suns and James Jones will start in his place. What It Means: Love injured his back on Monday band was listed as questionable entering Thursday's game. He is not expected to miss any time beyond the Phoenix game but does have a history of back injuries. Consider him questionable for Saturday's showdown with the San Antonio Spurs. Jones may be starting but is not worth a look in DFS or a pickup in year-long leagues. Kyrie Irving and Lebron James will take a few extra shots versus the...

Love questionable to play vs. Suns on Thursday

Let him rest, Cleveland. Cleveland might be without its third leading scorer and leading rebounder when they host the Phoenix Suns on Thursday. Kevin Love did not have any contact in practice, questionable for tomorrow. #Cavs— Tom Withers (@twithersAP) January 18, 2017 We hope Kevin Love is ok obviously, but if he shouldn’t be playing against Phoenix then that’s fine too. He participated in practice on Wednesday, minus the contact, two days after an early exit against the Golden State Warriors. Love scored three points in 16 minutes in the 126-91 loss. Phoenix and Cleveland just...

Kevin Love considered questionable for Thursday's game against Suns

INDEPENDENCE: Kevin Love did not participate in any contact portion of practice Wednesday and is considered questionable for Thursday’s game against the Phoenix Suns. Love sat the second half of Sunday’s blowout loss at Golden State because of tightness in his lower back. Love said it wasn’t serious and he didn’t expect to miss any time, but the Cavs have been conservative even with minor ailments this season. Love’s back has given him trouble before. “He only went through half the practice,” coach Tyronn Lue said. “Not sure how he’s going to feel tomorrow.”
