While Kevin Love said he’s hoping to return ahead of schedule, the Cavs have said that there is “nothing to adjust” in regards to his expected return date.
Love has resumed light contact work with team personnel but is still expected to be out the full eight weeks. He’s slated to return at the end of March, which would leave him just enough time to be worth holding in fantasy leagues. Literally, just enough. Love would be threading the needle but it seems like he’s more likely to slightly beat the timeline than surpass it. There’s still a chance he returns early, as this is the typical back and forth — the player is overly optimistic and the team is highly conservative. We’ll see how Love fares when he returns.
