Kevin Love's replacement has been found for NBA All-Star game

Kevin Love's replacement has been found for NBA All-Star game

ESPN has reported: "New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony has been selected as the injury replacement for Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love for Sunday's All-Star Game in New Orleans, the National Basketball Association said Wednesday".

James, 32, is already averaging a team-high 37.6 minutes per game this season for a Cavaliers team that can't seem to get by for long stretches without the four-time NBA Most Valuable Player on the court.

Love, 28, underwent a scan on the knee on Sunday after experiencing pain in the joint during Saturday's 125-109 win over Denver.

Love will miss this weekend's All-Star game.

Toronto started the day in fourth place in the Eastern Conference, having lost 10 of its previous 14 games.

But Lue said Love now faced a further examination on Tuesday to assess his injury.

Wednesday's victory improves the Cavs' overall record to 39-16 (.709) and home record to 24-5 (.828), both of which are tops in the Eastern Conference.

Should Kevin Love miss the team's remaining games before the All-Star break, the trio of Channing Frye, Richard Jefferson and newly-acquired Derrick Williams will share the minutes brought by Love's absence. As noted by Cleveland.com, the team has yet to reveal the results of the MRI, and as of Tuesday, has not disclosed where Kevin Love would get a second opinion.

When Love returns, he will have eight to ten games left in the regular season to shake the rust off his game. For, I remember two years ago, when Love was injured in the playoffs, causing him to miss the Finals. Even on the shoulders of LeBron James' superhuman effort, the lack of his fellow stars proved costly.

His absence will put further stress on Cleveland's depth and could force general manager David Griffin to make a major move before the February 23 trading deadline.

More importantly, LeBron is 32 years old and views every season as championship or bust.

"I definitely have to figure it out", he said.

The Washington Wizards is having a wonderful season and it can be seen that the team has come out strong when Beal returned to play after sustaining a hamstring injury. "We'll be ready to play against whoever we step on the floor with".
