The Cleveland Cavaliers suffered a major blow in their already tumultuous season on Tuesday night. In the first quarter of Tuesday's game against the Detroit Pistons, Kevin Love left to the locker room with a hand injury.
ESPN's Dave McMenamin reports that X-rays show Love suffered a non-displaced fracture in his left hand.
You can see the exact moment the injury took place in the video below.
While McMenamin initially said that his status will be updated after further examination, fellow ESPN reporter Brian Windhorst tweeted that Love is "likely out 6-8 weeks."
This is now the second year in a row that Kevin Love went down with an injury before the All-Star Game. He underwent knee surgery on February 14 last year, causing him to miss the All-Star Game on February 19.
McMenamin pointed out that during the Cavs shootaround on Tuesday morning, James ominously stressed the importance of health in order to head into playoffs on the right foot, saying, "If we can [stay healthy], we'll put ourselves in a position to be ready for the postseason."
