INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) Cavaliers forward Kevin Love was limited in practice with a sore back and is questionable for Thursday’s game against Phoenix.
Love didn’t have any contact during Wednesday’s practice, the Cavs’ first since returning from a six-game road trip. Coach Tyronn Lue said Love participated in the first half of the workout.
During the portion open to media, Love moved well while taking part in a shooting drill. He has missed four games this season, two with a knee issue and one while recovering from food poisoning.
Love sat out the second half of Monday night’s 126-91 loss at Golden State. Afterward, he said he didn’t expect to miss any games.
He’s averaging 20.7 points and 10.8 rebounds for the Cavs, who went 3-3 on their trip but haven’t played well lately.
