INDEPENDENCE (92.3 The Fan) – Kevin Love insists his back is fine.
Love, who has battled intermittent back spasms this season, will return Wednesday night against the Brooklyn Nets after sitting out the last 2 games for the Cavaliers.
“Me resting had nothing to do with my back,” Love said following the Cavaliers shootaround Wednesday morning.
Love has missed just 5 games this season but only 2 of them officially because of his back. He sat out a game due to an eye injury and the last 2 were simply nights off.
“Just rest,” Love said. “Coach approached me, knew I was playing heavy minutes, just came to me and asked if I would sit a game or two. That’s all it was.”
ESPN reported that Love had asked Blatt to sit Sunday at Miami.
