Love did hurt his knee after stepping on official's foot, but said after last night's game that he's fine and should play in Wednesday's Game 5. Cavs coach Tyronn Lue also said as much in his postgame press conference.
Kevin Love said he hurt his knee when he stepped on official's foot. Expects it to be sore tomorrow but he'll play in Game 5— Jason Lloyd (@JasonLloydABJ) May 24, 2016
He offered up some context on the injury to ESPN:
"I think Kyrie [Irving] was shooting towards the end of the third quarter, and I stepped on the official's foot, and it didn't feel too great," said Love, who had a total of 13 points and 11 rebounds in Games 3 and 4. "More so the knee [than the ankle hurting]. Will be sore tomorrow, but nothing that will prevent me from playing."
Via Dan Devine of Yahoo's Ball Don't Lie blog, here's the video of Love's incident:

Love being healthy, even if he's struggled the past two games and didn't play in the fourth quarter in both gaames, is a good thing. The Cavs are going to need him if they are to win Game 5 and advance after struggling in the past two games.
For the playoffs, Love is averaging 16.4 points and 10 rebounds per game.
