He must then pass a series of requirements, including being free of concussion-related symptoms while resting, an examination by a physician, completing the league's rigorous return to participation exertion protocol, then being signed off on by the director of the National Basketball Association concussion program.

To make matters worse, when Love was elbowed Tuesday night, the player responsible for the injury, Heat's Jordan Mickey, didn't even receive a flagrant foul.

Love, one of the clothing line's most recognizable pitchmen whose smiles dot their magazine spreads, was knocked from a 98-79 loss to the Miami Heat Tuesday by an elbow to the teeth. He remained down for a few moments, then left the game for the remainder of the first quarter. He returned for the start of the second quarter but eventually ended his night at halftime.

Love showed some concussion-like symptoms at halftime, according to a team spokesman, and was held out of the second half of the game for precautionary reasons.

It remains unclear how much time Love will need to miss. Love only recently returned after missing 21 games with a broken left hand. He is averaging 17.7 points and 9.2 rebounds through 53 games this season.

If Love is officially diagnosed with a concussion, it would not be the first for the 29-year-old.

After the game, the Cavs said he was experiencing concussion-like symptoms, and the team would know in the morning if he would be in the league's concussion protocol. He drove to the hoop but his shot was strongly swatted away from behind by Dwyane Wade, James's good friend who began the season as a teammate on the Cavs but was traded last month to the Heat.
