Kevin Love to play despite eye injury

Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love will play in Thursday night's game against the Chicago Bulls despite an eye injury, a source told ESPN.com's Ramona Shelburne.

Love, who has been listed as questionable for Thursday, suffered a corneal abrasion to his right eye in the Cavs' Wednesday night win over the visiting Miami Heat.

He was injured while battling Mario Chalmers for a rebound in the third quarter. Love finished with 12 points on 5-for-8 shooting, six rebounds and four assists in the victory, Cleveland's 14th in its last 15 games.

"It was blurry for about 20, 30 minutes, but I was able to regain my vision and feel fine now," Love said after the game. "So I'm just happy that we were able to sustain the lead and get the win."

Information from ESPN.com's Dave McMenamin contributed to this report.
