Kevin Love told cleveland.com that he is hopeful to play against the Suns on March 23rd.
Speaking to reporters on Monday, he was hesitant to provide a precise target date as the Cavs also play the East-leading Raptors on March 21st and are in Brooklyn on March 25th, which limits practice opportunities. At the time he was hurt, the Cavs said he’d miss eight weeks, which would be March 26th, so Love could be a little bit ahead of that timeline. Owners in leagues with an IR spot need to hold tight but otherwise it will be hard to hold onto him as it’s unclear whether he will be on a minutes restriction or not upon his return.
