Another All-Star Down

Kevin Love Out with Fractured Hand, Drummond to Replace Wall

Another day, another All-Star goes down due to injury.

With all the drama coming out of Cleveland, the last thing they could afford is an injury, especially one to a star player. Well, things just kept getting worse for the Cavaliers as Kevin Love broke his left hand in the first quarter of the team’s Tuesday night game against the Detroit Pistons. The Pistons went on to win the game by a score 125-114, backed by a monstrous performance from their big man Andre Drummond, off the heels of being named John Wall’s replacement in the 2018 All-Star Game.

Kevin Love is expected to miss up to 6-8 weeks with the injury and to this point it is unknown whether or not he will require surgery. Love underwent surgery on the same hand back in October of 2009, and got three screws inserted into his hand.

As the Cleveland Cavaliers struggle to find consistency, clinging on to the third seed in the Eastern Conference for dear life with the Miami Heat coming to town tonight, this injury may either hurt the Cavs or will allow them to come together as a unit and to right the ship just weeks away from All-Star Weekend. Speaking of Miami, Love’s potential All-Star game replacement, Goran Dragic will be leading the Heat’s charge tonight.

Through 48-games, Love has been averaging 17.9-points and 9.4-rebounds per game.
