Coach J.B. Bickerstaff called the injury “a freak thing” because it happened on a common play.
“Guys get tangled up going for rebounds, competing for loose balls and things,” Bickerstaff said on a Zoom call.”It wasn’t a dirty play, nothing like that – two guys playing basketball and this happens. Bickerstaff said it’s possible Love could return against the Nets.
After Mobley got hurt, the Cavs finished with just nine players against the Celtics.
Bickerstaff said Ed Davis and 7-foot-6 Tacko Fall could get additional playing time.
