Cleveland Cavaliers general manager David Griffin spoke to the media on Tuesday.
Love left Sunday's game against the Celtics after his shoulder was dislocated by Celtics center Kelly Olynyk on a tie up. It was reported by ESPN's Brian Windhorst that Love will miss a minimum two weeks, which led to speculation that Love would come back if the Cavaliers win the next playoff series, "I want to make it really clear that's highly unlikely, the damage to his shoulder is extensive, this is not a situation where we are expecting him to be available for the remainder of this," Griffin said on Tuesday.
Griffin also went on to say that surgery is an option for Love's shoulder.
The Cavaliers will play the winner of the Milwaukee Bucks and Chicago Bulls series on Monday, May 4.
