Cleveland Cavaliers big man Kevin Love suffered a right ankle injury in Wednesday’s 102-88 loss against the Boston Celtics and was forced to exit the game.
Love initially tried to play through the ailment but went back to the locker room for good in the fourth quarter. He finished with just two points on 1-of-11 shooting in 21 minutes.
The Cavs’ next game is Saturday when they take on the Orlando Magic. Love told reporters postgame he should be able to play.
