Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love has had a tough season. And to make matters worse, he had a tough night on Tuesday.

He suffered a nasty tooth injury. In addition, he also was showing concussion-like symptoms and did not return against the Miami Heat.

Love, who returned to the Cavaliers after suffering a broken hand, suffered the facial injury just minutes into the game with the Heat. Cleveland lost the game 98-78, but they are more concerned about Love’s health.

According to NBA on TNT, Love had one of his teeth pushed back.

The 29-year-old broke his hand on Jan. 30 against the Detroit Pistons. He then missed the next 17 games, which was approx. six weeks.

He returned to the Cavaliers on March 11th. Without their star, Cleveland went 9-8, but they were 4-0 prior to the loss on Tuesday night.

Love was averaging 20.3 points and 10 rebounds per game. In addition, Cleveland was averaging 124 points per game during their four-game win streak.

He’s definitely going to need some dental work. Plus, with his concussion, he’s going to miss at least a week.

The Cavaliers are definitely going to need to adjust their lineup. Larry Nance Jr., Tristan Thompson, and Jeff Green could definitely see an increase in playing time until Love is able to return.

Cleveland will be without Love on Wednesday, as they return to the court against the Charlotte Hornets.
