Vote: How should Love injury impact Cavs' approach to trade deadline?

The trade chatter is sure to pick up around the Cleveland Cavaliers after Tuesday's news that All-Star forward Kevin Love is expected to be out for six weeks (arthroscopic knee surgery).

With the Boston Celtics surging and the Toronto Raptors adding Serge Ibaka, do the Cavaliers need to make a move before next Thursday's trade deadline in order to shore things up in the Eastern Conference? If that six-week timetable is accurate, Love would be back in the Cavs' lineup with about two weeks remaining in the regular season.

The 28-year-old Love, who is averaging 20.0 points and 11.1 rebounds this season, suffered the injury sometime during the Cavs' recent four-game road trip. East-leading Cleveland is currently two games ahead of Boston.
