Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love is a game-time decision for the Cavaliers' Thursday game vs. the Miami Heat. Cavs coach David Blatt told reporters in attendance at today's practice that Love is dealing with a back injury, but went through the non-contact portion of today's practice.

Love injured his back on Sunday in the Cavaliers' win over Philadelphia 76ers when he took an elbow to the back according to Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal. At the time, Love said that he expected to play Thursday.

Cavs guard Iman Shumpertwho injured his ankle on a missed dunk and also left Sunday's game, also practiced today.

The Cavs tip-off vs. the Heat tomorrow at 8 p.m. as the second game in a three-game home stand. The game airs on TNT.
