Cavs' Love recovering well, expects to be ready for playoffs

Cavaliers forward Kevin Love expects to be ready for the NBA playoffs in April after "very minor" knee surgery.

Doctors removed "loose bodies" from his left knee Feb. 14 and have told the All-Star he will need six weeks to recover. Love expects to have the stitches taken out this weekend, and he believes he's on schedule to return in late March.

"There's definitely enough time to where I can get into a good rhythm," Love said Friday following practice in his first comments since the operation.
