Cavaliers All-Star forward Kevin Love left Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals after banging heads with Boston's Jayson Tatum.
He's been ruled out for the game.
Now we get it: Kevin Love being held out of remainder of the game as a precaution. Continues to be evaluated for that head-to-head collision with Jayson Tatum in which Love got worst of it.- Steve Aschburner (@AschNBA) May 26, 2018
Love and Tatum inadvertently collided midway through the quarter and both dropped to the floor. Love, who missed a March 28 game at Charlotte with a concussion, immediately raised his arm as if to signal he needed help.
He stayed down for several minutes before he was helped to his feet. He walked unsteadily to the bench with guard George Hill holding his Love's arm. Love sat briefly before heading to the locker room for further evaluation.
Tatum stayed in the game.
Love, who is in his fourth season with Cleveland and is the club's second-best player, is averaging 15 points and 11 rebounds in the series.
