Announced absent for a period of two months, Kevin Love is optimistic about the chances of making an early return on the floors.
Kevin Love The victim of a fracture of the left hand that was removed from the ground since the end of January takes his patience patiently waiting to make his comeback with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He was forced to return to the infirmary, and when he was announced for an eight-week absence, the five-time All-Star said he was satisfied with his progress to the point of hoping to continue burning the steps to resume service sooner than expected.
“It would be great if I could come back before eight weeks. I hope that will be the case, “he told ESPN after a shoots training session.
“I was able to start shooting and dribbling a little bit with my right hand and I will gradually start doing it again with my left hand. One of the things I can do right now is to do some catch and shoot and chain shots at 3 or 5 meters. It feels good to do something other than running on a carpet or riding a bike. “
While the franchise has completely disrupted its workforce before the transfer deadline, the NBA 2016 champion now intends to do everything possible to help the team to take a new course in the final stretch of the regular season. He is counting on the experience accumulated over the past few seasons by the managers of the locker room to allow newcomers to quickly find their cruising pace for the playoffs.
“Between LeBron, JR, Tristan and I, we have players who know what to expect. So it’s up to us to get everyone together and make sure that veterans get the younger and the newer into this process. Having new blood and new faces are good because they are going to be very hungry and they will want to learn quickly to make a big run. “
Although the Cavs have made some serious progress since the deadline, Kevin Love’s contribution can only be a plus for LeBron James and his band that have won only 7 games out of 12 since the injury of their home. Enough to confirm that the form of the former Wolves star, the team’s second offensive option, will again be a determining factor for Cleveland in the race for a fourth consecutive NBA Final.
