CLEVELAND  — Cavaliers forward Kevin Love had surgery on his dislocated left shoulder at a hospital in New York City on Wednesday.

The Cavs said the surgery was a success; however, Love’s projected recovery time is 4-to-6 months.

Love was injured during the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the Boston Celtics after tangling with Celtics center Kelly Olynyk. Olynyk received a one-game suspension.

On Tuesday, Cavs general manager David Griffin said it was “highly unlikely” Love would return during the postseason.

Love was in his first season with Cleveland, which acquired him last summer in a trade from Minnesota. The six-year veteran struggled at times during a bumpy year with the Cavs, who will face either Chicago or Milwaukee in the Eastern Conference semifinals beginning Monday, May 4. *Read more here*

Love can opt out of his contract this summer and become a free agent.
