Kevin Love enters concussion protocol, will miss game vs. Charlotte Hornets

As a result, the Cavaliers announced that Love won't play on Wednesday night when the team takes on Charlotte.

Kevin Love exited the Cavaliers' terrible 19-point loss to the Heat in the second quarter after he got inadvertently elbowed in the face while attempting to take a charge.

After taking an elbow to the face against the Miami Heat, Love headed to the locker room with one of his front teeth noticeably out of place. While he came back out and played in the second quarter, concussion symptoms from the blow had him out for the entire second half. "I believe it was his tooth", Cavs acting head coach Larry Drew said. 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. They led by as many as 15 points in the first half, and were clinging to a two-point lead going into the fourth quarter.

"Obviously his production when he went out early, he tried to come back but wasn't feeling it", LeBron said.

Gwynedd Council will support Earth Hour campaign
He cited how Earth Hour aims to raise awareness on the need for climate action and the promotion of sustainable energy sources. Manchester Cathedral will be turning off non-essential lights for one hour to support WWF's Earth Hour this Saturday.

Love missed Game 3 of the 2016 NBA Finals because of a concussion, and returned last week from a 21-game absence caused by a broken bone in his left hand. "We haven't had an offensive game like that in a while, and not having Kev out there to kind of stretch the floor for us, that definitely hurt us".

According to McMenamin, Love will be re-evaluated on Wednesday morning.

The NBA-leading Rockets became the first team since San Antonio in the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season to have three winning streaks of at least 10 games in a season. The player must also gradually resubmit to a series of physical activities, after which the team will submit their findings to Dr. Jeffrey Kutcher, the league's concussion doctor.

At this point, we have no idea what the severity of Love's injury is.
