It's been a crazy season for the #Cleveland Cavaliers. Not only are they dealing with injury problems, but they just can't put a win streak together. Sunday night, the reigning Eastern Conference champions lost against the Atlanta Hawks, who were the worst team in the league before the game. Despite their comeback in the fourth quarter, the Cavaliers lost the game by two points, going down to a 4-6 record.

Cleveland played without Tristan Thompson as #Kevin Love was a starting center. However, even Love couldn't stay healthy and he ended up in the hospital [VIDEO]. Yes, that's right. Even though it appears that it's nothing serious, the Cavaliers may not be able to count on their power forward for a few games.

Considering they are two games under .500, they need all the help they can get.

Kevin Love may miss a few games

Kevin Love, who was averaging 17.6 points and 11.0 rebounds before the game, spent only 18 minutes on the floor against the Hawks. The forward had a bad shooting night, scoring only 4 points on 1-for-6 shooting. However, he was decent with rebounding as he grabbed 4 boards, and he also added 3 steals to his stat line.

Love was ruled out for the remainder of the game after three quarters, and it turns out he ended up in the #Hospital. Fortunately for the Cavaliers, Love is not injured and he may come back to action soon. However, there is also a chance that he misses a few games, especially considering how bad his performance was against Atlanta. "Kevin Love is at the hospital with an illness.

That's all we know right now," said Tyronn Lue, the Cavaliers head coach.

If the Cavaliers cannot use Love for their next game, it will be interesting to see what lineup changes Lue will make. With Thompson out and Love dealing with an illness, Cleveland is shorthanded. The worst thing is that the team doesn't have a reliable center, which means they might be forced to start rookie center Ante Zizic.

Cavaliers are dealing with many problems

After 10 games in the season, the Cavaliers only have four wins. They lost some easy games, which could be costly as they are preparing for a four-game road trip.

Cleveland Cavaliers will host the Milwaukee Bucks Tuesday night before they hit the road. The road trip will start in Houston against the Rockets and it will end in Charlotte. Considering that the Cavaliers are dealing with too many issues [VIDEO], it is questionable if they can get to a .500 record soon.
