CLEVELAND (AP) The Cavaliers will move forward in the NBA playoffs without Kevin Love and with their title hopes shaken.
Cleveland's starting forward has been ruled out for the team's next playoff series - and perhaps longer - after dislocating his left shoulder in Sunday's win to sweep the Boston Celtics.
Love, playing in his first postseason as a pro, got hurt when he got tangled with Celtics forward Kelly Olynyk while chasing a loose ball in the first quarter. Olynyk clamped down on Love's arm and pulled so hard it popped out of the shoulder joint. Love had an MRI and other tests performed Monday and the team said he sustained a dislocation with torn ligaments and labrum.
