Love missed Cleveland's game vs. the Milwaukee Bucks with back spasms after leaving the Cavaliers' loss to the Atlanta Hawks with the injury. Marion had missed the previous two games with an ankle sprain. James, who is expected to miss two weeks with a left knee and back strains, did not travel with the team to Charlotte.
Matthew Dellavedova, who started in Atlanta with James out, is expected to start again tonight.
