Multiple outlets reported Monday that Cavaliers forward Kevin Love is seeking a second opinion on his knee injury, after being ruled out for at least the next game in Minnesota.

General Manager David Griffin indicated to reporters that it could be an extended amount of time, possibly even after the All-Star Break.

“I would love to be able to tell you that he’ll miss three games and be back, but I can’t right now because we don’t know,” Griffin said.

Head coach Tyronn Lue said he’s “definitely concerned” about Love’s status.

“Always concerned when guys are going down,” Lue said. “And we’re already limited as it is. Definitely concerned, but gotta see how he feels. Just, get evaluated tomorrow and see how he feels.”

The Cavaliers have been bitten by the injury bug time and time again this season, losing J.R. Smith to a broken thumb, dealing with Love’s back issues at various times of the season, and also losing Iman Shumpert for three games last week.

Shumpert will travel with the team to Minnesota and hopes to play Tuesday, but even if he does return, it’s another case of getting one guy back just to see another go down.

We’ll keep you posted on any further developments.
