CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Cavaliers are set to take on the Philadelphia 76ers at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse Thursday evening at 7 p.m.—and they'll have some familiar faces rejoining them for the game.

Head coach J.B. Bickerstaff said before the game that both Kevin Love and Matthew Dellavedova will be available for the game Thursday night.

Love suffered a right calf strain in December and did not take the court again until March 12, but quickly left that game with calf soreness and has been out again since.

Dellavedova has battled a series of injuries, first suffering a concussion in the preseason and then as we was ramping up to return, had to have an appendectomy, which set his return back several weeks.

Bickerstaff said the team will monitor Love and Dellavedova's minutes and both will be limited.

Love has played in just four games this season with the calf strain while Dellavedova has not played a regular season game in over a year.

Jarrett Allen will remain out with a concussion and Larry Nance Jr. is out again with non-COVID-19-related illness.
