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
