Cleveland coach Larry Drew was encouraged by what Love was able to do during Friday’s shoot-around, which consisted mostly of taking part in offensive drills.
“What I saw of Kevin this morning, I was almost in awe — how well he moved, how well he passed,” Drew said. “I’ve been watching in workouts and he’s been shooting the ball extremely well.”
Drew said Love still hasn’t gone through any contact drills and no timetable has been established for when he will return.
“That’s not going to be my call,” Drew said. “That’s medical (staff). When they feel that he’s completely ready, when he feels like he’s completely ready and when he can step out on the floor, we’re going to embrace him.”
While Drew is impressed by the way Love is moving on the court, he doesn’t want to rush him back.
“I talked to him a couple of days ago and he was talking about how heavy his legs feel,” Drew said. “At this point, we don’t want any kind of a setback.”
