As Cleveland Cavaliers star Kevin Love continues to recover from a dislocated shoulder that cut his first playoff run short, the Boston Celtics' Kelly Olynyk—the player responsible for the injury—is reportedly trying to contact Love in order to issue a personal apology.

Too bad Love is having none of it.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports wrote on Thursday that Love isn't interested in hearing, let alone accepting, an apology from Olynyk. Love explained what's going on with this situation to Chris Haynes of the Northeast Ohio Media Group:

'Oh yeah. I'm over it,' Love said. 'I'm just trying to get healthy.'

Love said Olynyk has reached out multiple times and he acknowledged not returning any of his calls. He'll save that conversation for down the road. Right now, he has more important business to tend to.

'All I'm focused on is getting healthy right now,' he said.

Well, Olynyk can keep trying to apologize. But he shouldn't expect to get anywhere.
