Kevin Love ruled out Tuesday vs. Clippers

Cavaliers PF will rest on the second of a back-to-back, but Larry Nance Jr. is expected to get back in the lineup.

Cleveland Cavaliers PF/C Kevin Love has been ruled out for rest on the second of a back-to-back Tuesday vs. the Los Angeles Clippers.

Well, my Cavaliers at +15 pick goes out the window, but at least we know well ahead of time. Nance has missed the past six games due to a knee injury, and will likely take Love’s spot in the starting lineup alongside Tristan Thompson.

With Zizic and Love out, Thompson is a strong GPP play on DraftKings. The Clippers — if anything — lack depth in the frontcourt. I’d also continue to ride Darius Garland, who would be more involved on offense with Collin Sexton with Love resting.
