Cavaliers forward Kevin Love sustained a left shoulder dislocation during the first quarter of Sunday's game in Boston vs. the Celtics. His shoulder was assessed, reduced in the locker room, immobilized and he did not return to the game.
X-rays and an MRI have been performed, as well as further evaluation at Cleveland Clinic Sports Health on Monday by Cavaliers head team physicians Dr. Richard D. Parker and Dr. Mark Schickendantz. Evaluation and imaging have defined the extent of the injury: an acute anterior inferior glenohumeral dislocation with the corresponding ligament/labrum tearing and humeral head bone bruising.
Currently, Love is undergoing training room treatments while additional opinions are being obtained and treatment options being explored.
Love will be unavailable for the Cavaliers' upcoming conference semifinal playoff series and an update regarding his status beyond that will be determined over the next several days.
