|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/30/15) In his end-of-season meeting with the media, Celtics GM Danny Ainge said he didn't think Kelly Olynyk hurt the Cavaliers' Kevin Love on purpose.
Olynyk pulled on Love's arm while going for a loose ball, separating Love's shoulder and putting him out for four-to-six months.
"I think that's a little bit over the top," Ainge said when asked if he thought Olynyk's actions were intentiona, per the Boston Globe. "I feel bad for Kevin Love."
"I thought it was just a foul," he added. "Two guys going for a loose ball."

|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/29/15) Cavaliers forward Kevin Love underwent successful surgery Wednesday to repair his dislocated left shoulder and will miss the remainder of the postseason, the team announced.
Love sustained the injury in his team's Game 4 win over the Celtics after getting tangled with Kelly Olynyk. He played just seven minutes in the win, which gave the Cavaliers a first-round sweep.

Cavaliers doubt Kevin Love (shoulder) can return in playoffs
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(4/28/15) Cavaliers general manager David Griffin said it's highly unlikely forward Kevin Love will be able to return during the playoffs, reports the Akron Beacon Journal.
Love sustained a dislocated shoulder during the Game 4 win over the Celtics on Sunday when he got tangled with Kelly Olynyk. Love has already been ruled out of the Eastern Conference Semifinals and Griffin said he would be surprised if Love was able to return at any point in the playoffs. He also did not rule out surgery for Love.
With Love likely out for the remainder of the playoffs, forward LeBron James said the team remains confident that someone will fill Love's role, reports Fox Sports.
"We're a confident bunch," he said. "We have guys who can step up. No excuses."
Cavs F Kevin Love (shoulder) out for conference semifinals
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/27/15) The Cavaliers announced that they will be without forward Kevin Love for the conference semifinals, according to FOX Sports.
Love dislocated his shoulder early in Game 4 against the Celtics. He was tangled up with Kelly Olynyk on a play that could now impact the next round. The Cavaliers will play the winner of the Bulls and Bucks series, with Chicago leading 3-1 at the moment.
"Evaluation and imaging have defined the extent of the injury: an acute anterior inferior glenohumeral dislocation with the corresponding ligament/labrum tearing and humeral head bone bruising," the Cavaliers said in a statement. "Currently, Love is undergoing training room treatments while additional opinions are being obtained and treatment options being explored. Love will be unavailable for Cavaliers' upcoming Conference Semifinal playoff series and an update regarding his status beyond that will be determined over the next several days."
It was previously reported that Love could miss up to two weeks at minimum with the injury. While Love is out for the conference semis, there's still a chance he could be back for the conference finals if Cleveland advances. However, nothing is certain at this time.
After the game against Boston, Love voiced his displeasure at Olynyk's play.
"I have no doubt in my mind that he did it on purpose," Love said.
|Kevin Love got his wish this offseason, as the Timberwolves ended up shipping him to Cleveland with one year on his contract. The move presents a major change for Love, who goes from being the unquestioned first option in Minnesota to having to share the ball with two other All-Stars in LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. Love put up tremendous numbers yet again last season, averaging 26.1 points, 12.5 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game, while ranking in the top-10 in the league in field-goal attempts, three-point attempts and free-throw attempts. Those numbers should all go down in his new home, but that doesn't mean Fantasy owners should be too concerned about Love's value. Now that he has more help, Love should be even more efficient as a scorer and passer than before, and should not slip much further than the middle part of the first round in most Fantasy leagues on Draft Day.
