Cavaliers get Love back from injury

He's expected to only serve as an observer initially upon his return, but it has to be nice to see their head coach back in the building after he missed the last six games due to health-related issues. Love, whose front tooth was damaged when he was inadvertently struck in the face, participated in the team's morning shootaround and the team upgraded him to "questionable". In 22 minutes of action, the veteran point guard had scored 8 points on 4-of-7 shooting in a game in which Cleveland trailed the Pelicans by 10 points at halftime. That helped the Pelicans eat away at a pair of early eight-point leads, closing the period by outscoring the Cavs 20-12 and making it a 29-all deadlock. In his absence, the Cavaliers are 5-1. He will be re-evaluated on Saturday.

That would be an unfair assessment to make for both the Cavs and Ty Lue.

The only other Cavs player to score in double-figures was Rodney Hood, who notched 16 on the night.

"I personally think that there needs to be more room for individuals who want to pursue professional sports to be able to do that, particularly in basketball", Emmert said via ESPN. He scored seven points.

According to Wojnarowski, the plan is to have Lue ease his way back into coaching during the team's upcoming four-game homestand, which gets started Friday against the Pelicans.

He entered the game averaging 10.0 points, 3.0 assists and 2.9 rebounds in 21 games with his new team.
