Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star forward Kevin Love won’t undergo surgery on his injured left hand, the team announced Friday. He’s projected to miss the next eight weeks.

Love, who sustained a non-displaced fracture in his fifth metacarpal in the first quarter of Tuesday’s game against the Detroit Pistons, concluded the examination and consultation process in New York City on Thursday. He will now undergo a non-surgical treatment and rehabilitation process to repair the injury, according to the team.

Love is having one of his best seasons since joining the Cavaliers in 2014-15, averaging 18.2 points and 9.6 rebounds while shooting 46.3% from the field and 40.4% on three-pointers. He was selected to the Feb. 18 All-Star Game but will be replaced by Miami Heat guard Goran Dragic.

Love has a history of broken metacarpals. He missed nine games at the start of the 2012-13 season with fractured third and fourth metacarpals in his right hand that did not require surgery. He fractured the same two bones on the same hand later that season and underwent surgery, missing 48 more games. Love also missed 18 games at the start of the 2009-10 season with a fractured fourth metacarpal in his left hand that required surgery.

The Cavaliers, who are in third place in the East at 30-20, beat Miami 91-89 on Wednesday night without Love.
