  • Heat's Kevin Love: Leaves Sunday's game early

    Love won't return to Sunday's matchup against Toronto due to left upper arm contusion.

    Love played three minutes of Sunday's game before suffering the injury. The Heat need to win and a few things to break their way if they hope to avoid the Play-In Tournament. If they do, the veteran Love will have a full week to rest before attempting to suit up again.

  • Heat's Kevin Love: Tallies double-double off bench

    Love posted 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-6 3Pt), 16 rebounds and four assists over 19 minutes in Thursday's 109-105 loss to Philadelphia.

    Love played in just under 20 minutes off the bench, but he owned the glass while leading all players in Thursday's contest in rebounds to go along with a quartet of assists in a double-double performance. Love set a new season high in rebounds, posting his second game with 14 or more boards. The veteran has now recorded five double-doubles this year, four of which have occurred while coming off the bench.

  • Heat's Kevin Love: Draws back into rotation

    Love (heel) logged 15 minutes off the bench in Tuesday's 109-99 win over the Knicks, finishing with eight points (2-8 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, three assists and one block.

    Love missed more than a month with a heel contusion before being cleared for game action last weekend, but he didn't get off the bench in wins Friday over the Trail Blazers and Sunday over the Wizards. After getting some more practice time under his belt, however, Love re-entered the rotation Tuesday as starting center Bam Adebayo's primary backup. Thomas Bryant, meanwhile, didn't play in a coach's decision after receiving double-digit minutes in nine of the Heat's previous 10 contests.

  • Heat's Kevin Love: Officially probable

    Love (heel/personal) is probable for Friday's game against Portland, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Love missed Thursday's practice for personal reasons and continues to manage a heel issue but should still suit up Friday, which would mark his first appearance since Feb. 27. If the veteran is cleared to suit up, he'll presumably handle a limited role off the bench.

  • Heat's Kevin Love: Expected to play Friday

    Coach Erik Spoelstra said Love (heel) didn't participate in Thursday's practice due to personal reasons but is expected have his status upgraded for Friday's game versus the Trail Blazers, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Love hasn't played since Feb. 27 while dealing with a right heel contusion. However, if the veteran forward is upgraded to available Friday, he will likely continue to serve as Miami's backup center to Bam Adebayo.

    Love (heel) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

  • Heat's Kevin Love: Remains out Monday

    Love (heel) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the 76ers.

  • Heat's Kevin Love: Remains out Sunday

    Love (heel) is out for Sunday's game against Detroit.

    Love will miss his ninth consecutive game Sunday due to a right heel contusion, and his status is murky as Miami closes a back-to-back Monday against Philadelphia. Thomas Bryant has served as the Heat's backup center in both of the past two games and should remain Bam Adebayo's top understudy for as long as Love is sidelined.

  • Heat's Kevin Love: Won't play Friday

    Love (heel) won't play Friday against Detroit, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Love didn't accompany the Heat to Detroit for the start of their four-game road trip, and though he could theoretically rejoin the team for any of its ensuing three games of the trip, he's more likely to remain back in Miami with Tyler Herro (foot) as both players complete their rehab programs for their respective injuries. Thomas Bryant served as the top backup to starting center Bam Adebayo in Wednesday's 100-88 loss to Denver and will likely hold down that role until Love is ready to return to action. Love hasn't played since Feb. 27 due to a right heel bruise.

  • Heat's Kevin Love: Ruled out for Wednesday

    Love (heel) won't play Wednesday versus Denver, Tim Reynolds of Associated Press reports.

  • Heat's Kevin Love: Out again

    Love (heel) will remain sidelined for Sunday's matchup with the Wizards, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

    Love's absence will mark his sixth straight game on the sidelines. The veteran big man's next chance to return to the Heat as frontcourt depth will come Wednesday versus the Nuggets.

  • Heat's Kevin Love: Missing two-game trip

    Love (heel) will miss Thursday's game in Dallas and Friday's game in Oklahoma City, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Love's absence streak will extend to five games while he remains in Miami to receive further treatment for his right heel contusion during the Heat's upcoming two-game road trip. Orlando Robinson is likely to serve as the primary backup to starting center Bam Adebayo while Love remains out.

  • Heat's Kevin Love: Ruled out for Tuesday

    Love (heel) will remain on the sidelines for Tuesday's game against the Pistons.

    Love will miss his third straight game Tuesday evening, and it's not a great sign that he's getting ruled out a full 24 hours in advance of tip-off. For now, he should be considered questionable at best for Thursday's game in Dallas.
