As Kevin Love nears a comeback from arthroscopic surgery on his left knee, the Cleveland Cavaliers’ All-Star forward says he is mindful of the ripple effects his return could cause after a month out.
“I think it will be pretty easy for me to come back in, and I just don’t want to mess up any of the rhythm these guys have,” Love told reporters Wednesday, one month to the day after undergoing the procedure to remove a loose body from the knee. Love’s original timeline for a return was six weeks, but the Cavs say their All-Star forward could play as soon as Saturday in Los Angeles as Cleveland embarks on a four-game road trip starting with a back-to-back against the Clippers and Lakers and continuing on through Denver and Charlotte.
