Kevin Love will miss Wednesday's game against the Wolves

A familiar face will miss Wednesday night's Wolves-Cavaliers game.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are in Cleveland Wednesday night to meet up with the Cavaliers, but a familiar face isn't going to be playing for the Cavs.

The team announced Wednesday that Kevin Love will miss Wednesday night's game. Love underwent an MRI on his back. The forward has been dealing with back spasms for weeks.

The Cavaliers say Love will continue to receive treatment to help his back recover.

Love was named as an Eastern Conference All-Star reserve last week. He's averaging 19 points and 11 rebounds per game – the best numbers of his three years with the Cavaliers. It's his first All-Star Game with the Cavaliers.

Love represented the Wolves in three All-Star games as he played the first six years of his career with Minnesota. But in 2014, Love forced his way out of Minnesota by demanding the Wolves trade him.

Minnesota worked out a deal with the Cavaliers that sent Andrew Wiggins to Minnesota as part of a blockbuster deal.

The Wolves enter Wednesday night's game winners of 4-of-5, while Cleveland has lost 7 of their last 11.
