What’s next for the Cleveland Cavaliers with Kevin Love sidelined

Cavaliers forward Kevin Love is scheduled to undergo heart surgery Monday, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The Cavaliers have been without him since suffering a heart attack on March 8.

Love underwent surgery on March 13, a day after the Cavaliers defeated the Los Angeles Clippers.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said on Sunday that Love was in the intensive care unit at Cleveland Clinic.

Cavs general manager David Griffin said Sunday that he believes Love will be ready for the season opener.

The Cavs have been in an all-out push for Love this offseason and this is a great opportunity for them to keep the team together, Lue told reporters Sunday.

Love has averaged just 8.8 points on 32.8 percent shooting over his last five games.

The 6-foot-9 forward has missed the past six games with a strained right biceps.

He is scheduled for a surgery on Monday.
