Kevin Love out on Thursday, James Jones starting for Cleveland
Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love (back) has been ruled out for Thursday against the Phoenix Suns and James Jones will start in his place.
Love injured his back on Monday and was listed as questionable entering Thursday's game. He is not expected to miss any time beyond the Phoenix game but does have a history of back injuries. Consider him questionable for Saturday's showdown with the San Antonio Spurs. Jones may be starting but is not worth a look in DFS or a pickup in year-long leagues. Kyrie Irving and Lebron James will take a few extra shots versus the Suns.
Jones is projected for 7.5 points and 2.3 rebounds in 19.3 minutes by our algorithms.
