Kevin Love broke a bone in his left hand during the Cavaliers’ game Tuesday against the Pistons, according to ESPN’s David McMenamin. He will be evaluated Wednesday in Cleveland, but could miss between six and eight weeks.
The X-ray on Kevin Love’s left hand revealed a non-displaced fracture in his left hand fifth metacarpal. Love will not return to play tonight. His status will be updated after additional examination and consultation tomorrow in Cleveland, per the Cavs.

Love will miss the All-Star game for the second straight year — last season, he had knee surgery just days before the event. He is now the third All-Star forced to bow out of this year’s game due to injury.
The Cavs lead the Pistons by four at the half, but the outcome of this game seems to be the least of their concerns.
