News: Love (shoulder) admitted Monday that he may be limited when camp begins, Chris Fedor of the Northeast Ohio Media Group reports. "Shoulder is great," Love said. "I imagine I will be limited as far as starting [camp], but I'm very eager to get back."
Impact: It's been nearly five months since Love underwent surgery to repair a shoulder injury suffered during the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs, but he's still dealing with some lingering effects of the injury. Love may be limited for the first couple of weeks of camp, but all signs point to him being healthy for the start of the 2015-16 campaign. The Cavs kick off the season against the Bulls on Oct. 27.

News: Love (shoulder) expects to be ready for the start of training camp, ESPN's Ramona Shelburne reports.
Impact: Love, in Las Vegas for Team USA minicamp, said he expects to return to on-court work within the next 7-to-10 days, but he's still unsure when his shoulder will be ready for full contact. Regardless, Love is expected to be at 100 percent when training camp opens.

News: Love (shoulder) is expected to be fully healthy for training camp and will have the offense run through him more in the upcoming season, Chris Haynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. "I think we have the ability to put him at the elbow and run offense through him more than we did and do some of the things he did very well in Minnesota," general manager David Griffin said. "And coach [Blatt], and Ty Lue and those guys have already been looking at the things he did do well there."
Impact: Love was relegated to a spot-up shooter for much of his first season with the Cavaliers, reducing his fantasy value considerably. He came on down the stretch, converting 41 percent of his three-pointers after the All-Star break. However, he suffered career-low numbers across the board and failed to grab at least 10.0 rebounds per game for the first time since his rookie year. His usage rate of 21.6 percent ranked him outside the top-100 in that category behind the likes of the Pacers' Roy Hibbert and the Blazers' Chris Kaman. Love's increased offensive role will help boost his assist numbers, but in that loaded Cavaliers' frontcourt, his minutes may be suppressed.
