    Quincy Guerrier, the 6-foot-7, 215-pound wing from Thetford Academy in Quebec City, Quebec and the Brookwood Elite AAU program, has committed to Syracuse and will enroll in January and then redshirt until the 2019-20 season, he told ZAGSBLOG.

    Guerrier chose the Orange over Oregon and Illinois.

    “I chose Syracuse because I had the best relationship with coaches,” he said. “Jim Boeheim came to all my AAU games during the summer. It’s not far from home, it’s like 4 1/2 hours driving from my house. So my family and friends can come to my games.

    “And it’s the best fit. He showed me how he wanted me to play in their system. I put the ball in the basket and that’s what he wants me to do so that’s why I choose Syracuse.”

    CLEVELAND (AP) – Kevin Love doesn’t know when he’ll be able to help the struggling Cavaliers.

    The All-Star forward said Tuesday night that he will miss at least several weeks with a painful left toe injury that has bothered him since the preseason and recently got so severe that he had trouble walking. He did not rule out surgery.

    The 30-year-old had an MRI and visited Dr. Martin O’Malley at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. He’s been told to rest the injury, and there is no clear timetable when he’ll play again.

    “I would like to get back obviously as soon as possible,” said Love, who has been wearing a walking boot on his left foot for the past few days. “I had high hopes for the season, I know it’s been off to a really rocky start, but the more I can be out there and help this team, the better. So I’m hoping to get out there as quickly as possible and hoping that it’s only two or three weeks.”
