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.

San Antonio Spurs power forward LaMarcus Aldridge said he wasn’t surprised to learn he was the last pick in the inaugural 2018 NBA All-Star Draft. “I’m not a flashy player,” the six-time All-Star said. “That’s OK.”

Aldridge was the last player chosen by LeBron James’ team, and Boston Celtics power forward Al Horford was the last pick by Stephen Curry’s team, league sources told ESPN’s Chris Haynes. “We’re all All-Stars, so, at the end of the day, we should be thankful to be here,” Aldridge told ESPN. “Picked first, picked last, it doesn’t matter. We’re all competitive, too. It won’t be the easiest thing to be picked last, but at the end of the day, you’re just happy to be here.”

Kevin Love says the Cavaliers have found “joy” again and that his return won’t pose a problem with the team’s newfound chemistry.

“We have a lot of selfless guys added, young guys who are playing extremely hard,” Love said Friday in an appearance on ESPN’s The Jump, a week removed from Cleveland’s roster overhaul and with several weeks left in his recovery from a broken hand. “I think you’ve seen that in the last two games in wins over Boston and OKC. So we just continue to keep playing hard. “I’ll fit in when I come back — and hopefully I’ll have enough games to get my legs beneath me and get my rhythm back.”
