He does look a bit older lol but he isnt out of game shape enough so that I would think that is what caused a calf strain.
My guess is he pulled himself out because he kept pushing JB to play him and see how he held up, it didnt work out
That might be it but I wont say its overly detrimental. Nance has really really looked good this year. With him shooting 3s at the rate he is, hes almost became a more impactful player than Love is already because of his athleticism and defense that Love doesnt have.
I wish the best for Love, I just also hope that when he does get healthy they look at reducing his mins to get Nance more floortime. It would be best for the team and it would also allow Love to play less mins and hopefully stay in better health.
I think I would put a cap on Loves mins at 30
With all the back to backs, there was going to be lots of minutes for Nance and others regardless of Kevin's health. And if the NBA is actually requiring teams to come up with excuses for sitting players this year (although you'd think they'd make an exception because of the circumstances) there are going to be more fictitious injuries than real ones this season.
Welp there it is. Love is out 3-4 weeks with a calf strain. Like clockwork
