Heat's Kevin Love: Diminished role continues
Love registered 10 points (3-7 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds and three assists over 18 minutes during Wednesday's 138-119 win over Memphis.
Love remained in the starting unit Wednesday, although he is not playing the minutes typically associated with an NBA starter. It is unclear why the coaching staff continues to run with Love as the starter, given how much better the team looks with him off the floor. Outside of limited stream appeal, Love is not someone to consider outside of deeper formats.... See More ... See Less
Heat's Kevin Love: Good to go Friday
Love (ribs) is available for Friday's matchup against the Cavaliers, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

Heat's Kevin Love: Likely to play Friday
Love is probable for Friday's game versus Cleveland due to a right rib contusion.
Love missed Monday's 130-128 loss to Atlanta with the same injury, but he returned to action Wednesday, reclaiming his spot in the starting five and finishing with eight points (4-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt), eight rebounds, two assists and one steal across 21 minutes. The veteran big man will likely continue to play through the injury Friday, though because the Heat are entering the front end of the back-to-back set, it wouldn't be a major surprise if he was downgraded to out ahead of the 8 p.m. ET tipoff. Even if Love plays Friday against one of his former teams, he'll still be a candidate to sit Saturday in Orlando.... See More ... See Less

Heat's Kevin Love: Grabs eight boards in team debut
Love posted zero points (0-4 FG, 0-4 3Pt), eight rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal over 22 minutes during Friday's 128-99 loss to Milwaukee.
Making his Heat debut, Love supplanted Caleb Martin in the starting five and might have approached 30 minutes had the game not turned into a blowout. Though Love struggled to produce during his time on the floor, his role looks as though it may be large enough for him to warrant attention in 12-team points and categories leagues. If managers picked him up Friday on speculation, it may make sense to hold Love for at least another game or two just to see if he does in fact end up settling into a 25-to-30-minute role....
