Kevin Love had surgery Wednesday in New York to repair his dislocated shoulder and will miss the rest of the postseason. His estimated recovery time is 4 to 6 months.



Love had the procedure at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. It was performed by Dr. David Altchek, who is not affiliated with the Cavs medical team or the Cleveland Clinic. Loveís follow-up care will be provided by the Cavsí medical staff and head team physician Dr. Richard Parker.



The given timeline makes it possible recovery could interfere with training camp and the start of next season, which typically begins around the end of October. Love, incidentally, has a player option on his contract and can become a free agent this summer.†
