Love, who had been listed as questionable for Thursday, suffered a corneal abrasion to his right eye in the Cavs’ Wednesday night win over the visiting Miami Heat. A source earlier told ESPN that Love would play Thursday.
Love was injured while battling Mario Chalmers for a rebound in the third quarter. Love finished with 12 points on 5-for-8 shooting, six rebounds and four assists in the victory, Cleveland’s 14th in its last 15 games.
“It was blurry for about 20, 30 minutes, but I was able to regain my vision and feel fine now,” Love said after the game. “So I’m just happy that we were able to sustain the lead and get the win.”
Information from ESPN.com’s Dave McMenamin was used in this report.
