Kevin Love to Miss Significant Amount of Time With Latest Injury

Blake Griffin: Could debut Thursday

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue described his communication with team owner Dan Gilbert as "not a lot, just every now and then".

Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love can expect an extended spell on the sidelines after he suffered a broken bone in his left hand against the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday.

The news was very bad. The Cavaliers said he had a non-displaced fracture in his fifth metacarpal and his status would be updated after additional examination today in Cleveland. The Eastern Conference champions may have to make a significant move to replace Love, who could be out for more than a month. That extended the Pistons' slide to eight games with the rematch looming on Tuesday night at Detroit's Little Caesars Arena.

The Pistons had to give up Tobias Harris and Avery Bradley - two starters - to acquire Griffin, so players like Johnson, Bullock and Luke Kennard will have a chance to play bigger roles. A Kyle Korver 3-pointer put Cleveland ahead to stay and the lead steadily increased.

Cavs reserve guard Dwyane Wade missed Sunday's game for personal reasons but could rejoin the team on Tuesday.

Love exited the game in the first quarter after playing just five minutes because of a left hand injury.

"It's just unfortunate for our team", Cavs star and team-mate LeBron James said. In Sunday's win, James piled up 25 points, eight rebounds and 14 assists and Kevin Love had 20 points and 11 rebounds.
