Kevin Love not planning to miss any more games, as Cavaliers ready for home stretch

Kevin Love not planning to miss any more games, as Cavaliers ready for home stretch

Kevin Love spent the All-Star break relaxing in Turks and Caicos and soaking up the Caribbean sun. His red arms are proof.

That getaway has him ready for the homestretch, a 24-game sprint to the end of one of the most frustrating seasons of his NBA career.

a€œI think youa€™ll see me more on a steady basis and not miss games after the break, Ia€™m hoping,a€ Love said following Wednesdaya€™s practice. a€œSo just continue to improve the minutes and make sure that Ia€™m feeling good and go from there.a€

Love made his official return on Feb. 8, following foot surgery that cost him 50 games. That night, he played six-plus minutes against the Washington Wizards and spent the remainder of the game working on his cardio in the locker room.

After being held out of the next game, the second of a back-to-back against Indiana, Love played 16 productive minutes versus the Knicks on Feb. 11. He was then rested for the final game prior to the All-Star break -- part of his recovery process.

Head coach Larry Drew said Love will remain on a minutes restriction until the doctors provide the go-ahead to make a change.

a€œI think he has done a magnificent job in the way he has conducted himself and he has stayed the course with his rehab through his injury,a€ Drew said. a€œI know how bad he wants to be out there, but things happen and you have to push through them, which he has done. Now hea€™s able to play. Hea€™s gradually getting his legs under him and gradually getting to the point where he can play extended minutes. Ia€™m certain that once he is able to get out there and really play extended minutes hea€™s going to make the most of it.a€
