The hurt just keeps on coming for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
First, they fired head coach Tyronn Lue and have been in a stalemate with their replacement Larry Drew ever since. Then, it was announced that star Kevin Love would miss over a month with a toe injury.
Now, it's been announced that Love has had surgery on the toe, and there won't be an update on an expected return for at least another six weeks.

It's been a long fall for the Cavs. With Kyrie Irving in Boston and LeBron James in L.A., Love remains the lone member of the "big three" that won the 2016 title. Now, at 1-7 and sitting in the cellar of the Eastern Conference, they find out he's having surgery, which was the WORST possible news?
This is already feeling like a lost season. The best the Cavs can hope for is to tank the rest of the year, and hopefully land a blue chip prospect in the draft. Maybe Zion Williamson?
Was really impressed with Zion Williamson's court vision when watching Duke's summer tour and preseason action. Maybe the most underrated part of his game. Full Scouting Video: https://t.co/FauNs33uVo pic.twitter.com/j8biOdDzsg— Mike Schmitz (@Mike_Schmitz) October 31, 2018
Pairing him up with a healthy K-Love could make for a formidable frontcourt next season. Oh well, a guy can dream.
