Kevin Love will not play in the Cleveland Cavaliers’ decisive Game 7 on Sunday against the Boston Celtics, as the All-Star forward has been placed in the concussion protocol.

The Cavaliers announced that Love is experiencing concussion-like symptoms after his collision with the Celtics’ Jayson Tatum in the first quarter of Friday’s game.

Just before the team’s announcement, confusion had reigned over Love’s status. Coach Tyronn Lue initially stated during a conference call that Love was in the concussion protocol. He then backtracked after further questioning to say that Love was still being evaluated and that he didn’t know about the protocol process or whether Love would go into it.
