  • Heat's Kevin Love: Won't start Saturday

    Love is not in the starting lineup for Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Celtics on Saturday, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Love moves to the bench in favor of Caleb Martin, who will get the nod at power forward. The veteran will come off the bench for the first time since Game 2 of the first-round series against the Bucks. He's averaging 6.9 points and 5.8 rebounds per game in the playoffs.

  • Heat's Kevin Love: Good to go for Game 4

    Love (lower leg) is available for Tuesday's Game 4 against Boston, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Love has been upgraded from probable to available Tuesday despite suffering a left lower-leg muscle strain in Game 3. The veteran big man has started in the first three contests of the series but has yet to surpass 16 minutes.

  • Heat's Kevin Love: Probable for Game 4

    Coach Erik Spoelstra said Monday that Love is probable for Tuesday's Game 4 against the Celtics due to a left lower-leg muscle strain, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Love exited Sunday's Game 3 win in the first quarter due to his injury and didn't return. Although he was sidelined down the stretch, it seems likely he'll be able to suit up Tuesday as the Heat attempt to sweep Boston. The 34-year-old had a limited impact over the series' first two games, averaging 4.0 points and 5.5 rebounds in 15.5 minutes.

  • Heat's Kevin Love: Questionable to return Sunday

    Love (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's Game 4 matchup with the Celtics.

    Love had an excellent start to the game, posting five quick points and punishing the Celtics' smaller starting lineup. However, he appeared to be hobbled for many positions before eventually leaving for the locker room with an apparent ankle injury. The veteran big man was able to return to the bench in a timely manner and seems to be fairing well, jogging on the sideline and getting shots up with teammates at halftime. The Heat will be starting Caleb Martin in the second half instead of Love, making his return unlikely despite no official word from the team.

  • Heat's Kevin Love: Scores three points in start

    Love closed Friday's 96-92 victory over the Knicks in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals with three points (1-1 FG, 1-1 3Pt), three rebounds and one assist over 16 minutes.

    Love started Friday but played just 16 minutes in the victory. Both Kyle Lowry and Caleb Martin saw more playing time than Love, a trend that is likely to stick moving forward. While Love does provide some floor spacing for the Heat, his inability to defend limits what he can do on the court.

  • Heat's Kevin Love: Modest production as starter

    Love posted six points (2-6 FG, 2-6 3Pt), seven rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal across 21 minutes during Saturday's 121-99 win over the Bucks in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.

    Duncan Robinson started Game 2 in place of Tyler Herro (hand), but Miami opted to go big in Game 3 with Love replacing Robinson in the first five. However, despite moving into the starting lineup, the veteran forward played just 21 minutes and failed to make a major statistical impact. Over the first three games of the series, Love has averaged 9.3 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.4 steals-plus-blocks in 18.3 minutes.

  • Heat's Kevin Love: Starting Saturday

    Love will enter the starting five for Saturday's Game 3 versus Milwaukee.

    Love will replace Duncan Robinson, who drew the start in Game 2 after Tyler Herro sustained a broken hand in the series opener, in the first unit. In 17 starts with Miami this season, Love has averaged 7.2 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.9 assists over 20.8 minutes.

  • Heat's Kevin Love: Leads from deep in strong outing

    Love closed Sunday's 130-117 victory over Milwaukee in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals with 18 points (5-9 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight rebounds and one assist in 23 minutes.

    Love posed a team-high-tying mark from three while leading the Heat bench in scoring and rebounds in a near double-double performance. During the regular season, Love surpassed the 15-point mark on six occasions leading into the playoffs.

  • Heat's Kevin Love: Good to go Sunday

    Love (ribs) is available for Sunday's game against the Magic.

    Love missed Friday's game against the Wizards with bruised right ribs but was taken off the injury report ahead of Sunday's regular-season finale. With the Heat battling a multitude of injuries, Love could be pushed into a larger role.
