CLEVELAND (AP) — Cavs forward Kevin Love took part in practice as the five-time All-Star moved closer to playing after missing most of the season with a calf injury. Love has been out since Dec. 27, when he aggravated a strain he initially incurred in an exhibition game. The Cavs have lost eight straight games. They got in a previously unscheduled practice after their game Wednesday against San Antonio was postponed because of a COVID-19 outbreak among the Spurs. Love's return would provide a boost as the Cavs deal with center Andre Drummond's awkward situation. The team is sitting Drummond while trying to trade him.
