Already without two of their top four players, the Cleveland Cavaliers now have the health of Kevin Love to monitor. Love was taken to the hospital after Sunday afternoon’s loss due to an illness that took him out of the game after recording just 4 points and 4 rebounds in 18 minutes.

After the loss, head coach Tyronn Lue was the one that notified the media that Love went to the hospital for evaluation and treatment.

The last thing the Cavs need at this point is more adversity and players out of the lineup. Hopefully the illness isn’t too serious, however it certainly isn’t a good thing that he had to be taken to the hospital.

We will have more information about the severity of the situation and a timeline for return when it becomes available. If Love is to miss some time, we will likely see more of Channing Frye and Ante Zizic, with Tristan Thompson out of the rotation already with a calf strain.
