Kevin Love leaves Cavs game for X-rays on his hand
Kevin Love left Tuesday’s Cleveland Cavaliers-Detroit Pistons game with a hand injury and went for X-rays.
Love exited the game in the first quarter and was reported to have gone into the locker room to see the extent of the injury.
Love took a lob pass inside and had a few Pistons players swat at him, which could have injured his hand. He was seen grabbing at his hand immediately.

The Cavs forward had only played five minutes before exiting the game.
Suffering a hand injury not long after his teammates had questioned the legitimacy of a previous injury probably won’t help his standing with his teammates, even if this one is legitimate.
