All-Star forward Kevin Love will be out for about six weeks after undergoing successful surgery to address continued “left foot symptoms,” according to the Cavaliers.

Love will undergo an extended period of treatment and rehabilitation after the surgery Friday at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City.

“I would like to get back obviously as soon as possible,” said Love told the Associated Press. “I had high hopes for the season, I know it’s been off to a really rocky start, but the more I can be out there and help this team, the better. So I’m hoping to get out there as quickly as possible and hoping that it’s only two or three weeks.”
