KEvin Love, Ricky Rubio’s teammate in the Cavaliers, has been included in the NBA’s health and safety protocols against COVID-19 and be indefinitely dismissed, starting with the game that Cleveland’s team will play tonight in Charlotte.

The franchise provided a brief statement about Love as he prepared to play the finale of a tour that will see them play five away games. “More updates will be provided at an appropriate time,” they said from the Cavs, who did not say whether Love continued with the team.

Love, 33, is averaging 9.9 points and 7.3 rebounds this season. In the last game he played 20 minutes and scored 11 points in the Cavaliers’ 101-92 loss to the Phoenix Suns.

It is the latest setback for the power forward who in recent seasons has been plagued by physical problems. He has been with Cleveland since 2014, but since 2016 he has never been able to play more than 59 games. So, he helped the Cavaliers win the NBA ring. In addition, Love has recognized suffering from mental problems and is one of the visible faces of the NBA in the fight and prevention of these diseases.
