CLEVELAND — Cavaliers starting All-Star forward Kevin Love left Sunday’s game against Oklahoma City with back spasms.
The team said Love will not return in the second half. Love missed all four shots — three 3-pointers — in the opening half before he was replaced and went to the locker room with:50 left in the first quarter.
The team later announced that Love will not be travelling to Dallas with the team Sunday evening, but will undergo a further examination Monday at Cleveland Clinic Sports Health.
Love recently missed a Jan. 19 game with back spasms. He’s averaging 20.3 points and 11.1 rebounds for the defending NBA champions.
Cleveland plays at Dallas on Monday.
