Love hit in ribs duirng Cavs’ practice



Two days before the Cleveland Cavaliers open the season against the New York Knicks, they received a scare when forward Kevin Love took a shot to the ribs during practice and was held out for the rest of the day.

Cavs coach David Blatt indicated that Love was not seriously injured.

“We pulled him out, but he’s OK,” Blatt said. “He’s fine.”

The Cavs did not say how the injury occurred.

Love was acquired by the Cavs this summer in a trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves. He averaged 25.1 points and 12.4 rebounds last season for the timberwolves.

With the addition of Love and LeBron James, the Cavs are hoping to contend for the NBA title this season. They begin their quest Thursday night against the Knicks.
