Kevin Love has been placed in the NBA's concussion protocol

Trailing by as many as 23 points and never leading by more than one, the Cleveland Cavaliers never got on track offensively and suffered a 98-79 loss to the Miami Heat at American Airlines Arena in Miami Tuesday night. That wasn't a coincidence. He was evaluated this morning and still exhibited the same symptoms, making him unable to take part in tonight's tilt. The Miami center's elbow struck Love in the mouth, causing him to immediately retreat to the locker room for evaluation.

Seven Washington players scored in double figures, led by Markieff Morris's 15 points, and the Wizards snapped a three-game losing streak to strengthen their position in the tight Eastern Conference. He briefly returned to the floor, but experienced concussion-like symptoms at halftime. With AP Photos.Cavaliers All-Star forward Kevin Love has been placed in concussion protocol after being hit in the face on Tuesday night in Miami. And when we had our looks, we had some really good looks, we just couldn't knock them down. Defensively they were disinterested (like most nights), Jeff Green was off (2-of-10 shooting), George Hill wasn't making an impact, Rodney Hood couldn't fill Love's shoes, and LeBron James was reminded Dwyane Wade is the greatest shot blocking guard the National Basketball Association has ever seen. "Not having Kev out there to kind of stretch the floor for us, that definitely hurt us". Our rhythm was broken right from the beginning. Interim coach Larry Drew said Korver is expected back soon, though the team has not revealed if an exact comeback date has been determined.

"Obviously, his production", James said of what the Cavaliers lost when Love went out injured.

Cleveland will take on a unsafe Hornets team, who has won the last four games and has two of their key players in Kemba Walker and Dwight Howard finishing out the season with great confidence, picking up a historic win over the Memphis Grizzlies last week.
