Miami Heat at Cleveland Cavaliers Preview 01/31/18

Not only have they lost 11 of their last 16, but now they have to figure out how to replace Kevin Love.

"It's a huge blow for our team, obviously", LeBron James said late Tuesday following a 125-114 loss to the Pistons, who were short-handed following their trade for Blake Griffin.

Star Philadelphia point guard Simmons was thought a chance to be called up after Washington's Wall was sidelined from the February 18 showpiece game with a knee injury.

Love will likely miss six to eight weeks with the injury, sources told ESPN's Brian Windhorst.

This is Love's ninth season in the National Basketball Association.

So far in 46 games this season, Drummond is averaging 14.7 points, 15.1 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 1.5 steals, and 1.4 blocks.

If there's ever been a time for LeBron James to envision fleeing to greener grass, the hellacious month of January 2018 has been it. How will the Cavs respond if Love misses significant time? It was the same hand he had surgery on back in 2009 that required three screws to be inserted. Love's treatment plan and the estimate on his return to play will be established following this review and a course of action is solidified.

Miami averages 42.2 rebounds per game, which ranks 20th in the league.

The Turkish military said in a statement it had killed 303 militants in northern Syria since the operation started. Turkey said the United States had proposed a 30 km (19 mile) "safe zone" along the border with Syria.

Last week, DeMarcus Cousins went down with an Achilles injury and is out for the season. All are members of the team captained by James.

"The All-Star Game confuses me", Whiteside said.

James re-entered the game with 7:50 remaining and immediately started going to Kyle Korver, reprising the formula that worked in a 17-point victory over the Pistons on Sunday. Ish Smith picked up 19 points and seven assists. Bullock's trey with five minutes left pushed the Pistons' up to 111-104.

Johnson scored nine third-quarter points while surpassing his previous career high of 22 points.

If Isaiah Thomas' math is correct, his game hasn't improved since he returned.

"I don't have anything I used to have right now and I know I will at one point, but it's just a process that I gotta really be patient with myself", Thomas said Tuesday.

Andre Drummond dominated the Cavaliers as he posted a monster double-double of 21 points and 22 rebounds on the night.
