Kevin Love won’t return vs. the Hawks due to an illness, according to a tweet from Cavs play-by-play announcer Fred McLeod.

Love had struggled so far against the Hawks. In 18 minutes, he was 1-6 from the field. 0-2 from three and pulled down just four rebounds. It is not clear what illness he is dealing with.

In the third quarter, after being bench, Love could also been seen getting yelled in the huddle by coach Tyronn Lue. After the play, he left the bench and did not return.
