CLEVELAND — Kevin Love is returned to the court Friday evening after a 50 game absence.

The Cleveland Cavaliers had Love in Friday’s starting line-up as the team took on the Washington Wizards in D.C. at 7 p.m.

This was the fifth game Love played in this season.

He played for seven minutes. Love put up four points, had one rebound and one assist.

The Cavs say this was the plan as Love was under a minutes restriction.

Prior to Friday, Love was out for 50 games following a foot surgery.
