All-Star forward Kevin Love returned from injury for the Cleveland Cavaliers and played six minutes in Friday night’s game against the Washington Wizards.
With the team wanting him to work his way back slowly, Love started the game and played six minutes, producing four points on 1-for-5 shooting and adding one rebound and one assist.
The Cavaliers fell to a 119-106 defeat, their 44th loss of the season.
It was Love’s first action since October 24, when he was shut down due to pain in his left foot that led to surgery in early November. He initially injured the toe during the preseason.
“It was fun to be out there,” Love said postgame, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “This is my 11th year and I’ve seen a lot, done a lot, but coming back off that was a weird feeling.
