Knee soreness to shelve Cavs' Love yet again

Sam Amico

CLEVELAND -- Cavaliers power forward Kevin Love will miss Tuesday's game at Minnesota with left knee soreness, the team announced Sunday.

According to the Cavs, Love experienced the pain in Saturday's win over Denver.

Love underwent an MRI, which showed no injury. He will undergo further treatment and evaluation, the team said.

Love, 28, missed two games last week with back spasms. He is averaging 20.0 points and 11.1 rebounds -- career-highs as a member of the Cavs -- in 46 games.

He will join LeBron James and Kyrie Irving on the Eastern Conference All-Star team for the first time.

The latest setback means Love will have missed both games against his former team this season.

Following Tuesday's game at Minnesota, the Cavs (37-16) return home to face Indiana on Wednesday.
