Cavaliers’ Mike Miller dealing with symptoms of concussion

ProBasketballTalk

The Cavaliers, winners of five straight, are finally clicking.

In the last two games, Cleveland’s formula has included Mike Miller returning to the rotation. But that change might be short-lived.

Cavaliers release:

Cavaliers forward Mike Miller left tonight’s game against the New York Knicks with 2:28 left in the fourth quarter with concussion like symptoms. He was evaluated further following the game and has been placed in the NBA’s concussion protocol program. He will remain in New York overnight for further examination.

The NBA’s concussion policy requires Miller to clear a series of progressively more strenuous physical tests without symptoms. Despite occasional griping about the guidelines, it’s good to have a system designed to enhance player safety.

If Miller suffered a concussion, he’ll surely miss games. If he didn’t, better to know that rather than rushing him back.
