It is unconfirmed whether or not Love tested positive for COVID-19.

Prior to the season, Cavs GM Koby Altman said that the entire Cavs roster would be vaccinated by the time the season started.

Fully vaccinated players have far fewer restrictions when it comes to the league’s health and safety protocols and are only tested if they are symptomatic, are a close contact of someone who tests positive for COVID-19 or a team medical staff member or league physician requires it.

They also do not have to quarantine if they are a close contact unless there are “unusual circumstances.” They are subject to daily rapid testing for the next seven days, though.

Love is averaging 9.9 points and 7.3 rebounds through seven games this season.
