He's back: Kevin Love completes first full practice since shoulder injury

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Just a day after telling Fear the Sword that he wasn't sure whether or not he'd be a full participant in practice, Kevin Love put the questions to rest. On Saturday afternoon, the Olympian and All-Star returned to practice with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

This is tremendous news. With Kyrie Irving's situation still unclear, and Tristan Thompson still unable to reach a contract agreement, Kevin Love is a major piece of the puzzle. Coach David Blatt said it isn't the plan to have Love play in preseason games on Monday or Tuesday, but that that could change. Either way, the ultimate goal would be for Love to be able to play in May and June. If you're lucky, he doesn't miss the start of the regular season so as to limit LeBron James' usage. He's also, just, you know, good.

This news is great because Love will be able to get to work shaking off some of the rust that will undoubtedly exist early on. With Love on board long term, it'll be great to see him healthy.
