After Love’s injury, will the Cavs keep the 1st place on the Eastern Conference?
Kevin Love will miss 6 weeks after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery.
Cavs Analysis after Love’s Injury:
- The Cavs are already missing JR Smith whose broken thumb is expected to keep him out of action until sometime in March;
- Iman Shumpert is also likely out until the All Star Break.
- Tristan Thompson, Channing Frye and Derrick Williams will see their minutes growing, and Williams will probably sign a guaranteed contract until the end of the season.
- With the Celtics and the Wizards having a great feeling recently, and with the Raptors acquiring DPOY candidate Serge Ibaka, the Cavs could lose the top position of the Eastern Conference
