Kevin Love says he's about a month away from being ready to go

New, comments

If all goes according to plan, Kevin Love will be available on opening night

The Cleveland Cavaliers still have a bit of uncertainty heading into training camp at the end of the month. Tristan Thompson remains unsigned, and Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love are busy rehabbing their way back from injury. Last night Love went on Late Night with Seth Myers and shed some light on his situation moving forward:

"I feel great," Love told Seth Myers. "I actually spent three weeks in Park City, Utah at the Olympic training facility there, rehabbed my shoulder, got in great shape and I feel great. I’m probably about a month, month and a half away. I don’t want to set an immediate deadline now, but I really feel good."

This is mostly good news. If it does take a month and half, that would put him exactly on line to be ready for the season opener on October 27. The Cavs shouldn't rush him, of course, but they might be tempted to if Kyrie Irving's situation lingers. I'd be curious to know if Kevin is able to shoot, or when he can get back to work on that. There might be some rust for Love to work off. Either way, it's good to know that he feels good and thinks he is close to being ready.
