LeBron James isn’t fazed by Kevin Love’s left knee injury.

James told his teammates that he’s prepared to carry them while the All-Star forward recovers from surgery.

Love is expected to miss the next six weeks.

Per the NEOMG:

“As long as I’m in the lineup, we’ve got a chance,” James said Tuesday morning. “We good. Kev is out for an extended period of time. J.R. (Smith) has been out, but I’m in the lineup. I’ll be suiting up. We’ve got a chance against anybody. I ain’t worried.”

 

According to head coach Tyronn Lue, Love’s left knee has been bothering him for a few games and started swelling up, causing him to undergo an MRI that led to Tuesday’s surgery.

 

“Sucks,” James said. “It’s just our road every season. One of our key guys get hurt and this year has probably been the worst out of all years — having our starting 2-guard out for so long and now having our All-Star power forward out for an extended period of time. It’s just next man up and we just hope for a healthy and speedy recovery for our All-Star.”
