Kevin Love avoided a major shoulder injury on Wednesday night’s Cavs-Lakers game when he was bumped by none other than Kobe Bryant. Love has a left shoulder stinger.

“At the time, I didn’t really know what it was, but it was just like when you get hit in the funny bone, the elbow, just a shooting pain,” Love said, describing how he felt after the Cleveland Cavaliers’ victory over the Los Angeles Lakers. “It felt like fire was running down my arm. It was just a stinger and the doctor said we’ll just be cautious and use the [all-star] break for it to feel better, but it feels okay right now.

“It’s not concerning, but this is the first time where that sort of thing has happened,” the Cavs All-Star added, as reported by the Washington Post.

Love immediately left for the locker room with his hand hanging limply after sustaining the injury in a shot attempt at the fag end of the second quarter. It appeared that the injury was serious, and Cavs GM David Griffin revealed to ESPN that it looked worse than it was.

The All-Star break saved Love and the Cavs. Love was injured in the same shoulder last spring against Boston Celtics, which sidelined him for the rest of the post-season till the finals. He later had a surgery on his dislocated shoulder before coming back this season.

Love, who isn’t selected with LeBron James for Toronto, now gets a six-day break to heal.
