Kevin Love breaks hand in game against Pistons


Cleveland Cavaliers set out to continue their two -game winning streak against the Detroit Pistons, Tuesday evening. According to Dave McMenamin, the X-ray revealed a non-displaced in the fifth metacarpal of his left hand.

Kevin Love left Tuesday night's game against the Detroit Pistons with a left hand injury.

Love went down the tunnel toward the locker room during the first quarter. The Eastern Conference champions may have to make a significant move to replace Love, who could be out for more than a month.


The Cavs will update Love's injury status and timetable for return on Wednesday.

For what it's worth, Love underwent surgery on the same hand back in 2009, which required three screws to be inserted into his hand. However, it should be noted that Davis was still very young when he suffered the injury, while Love is now 29 years old.

Love's injury will likely affect the Cavs' plans as the February 8 trading deadline approaches.
