Cleveland Cavaliers forward Mike Miller has been diagnosed with a concussion Friday after getting hit in the head in Thursday night’s game, The Morning Journal reported.
The former Mitchell Kernel was unintentionally hit in the head by Knicks star Carmelo Anthony in the fourth quarter of a game that the Cavaliers won 90-87 on Thursday night. Miller played 11 minutes in the game and did not score.
Miller, 34, was placed in the NBA’s concussion protocol program and his status is not yet updated. According to the NBA’s protocol, each player with a head injury will undergo baseline testing and won’t return to action until a neurologist is consulted and clears the player to resume activities.
The first-year Cavalier is averaging 1.5 and 2.1 rebounds in 12 minutes per game for Cleveland. Miller did in Friday night’s contest against the Toronto Raptors and is likely to miss Monday’s game in Brooklyn.
