Cavaliers without Love for Game 3 of NBA Finals

Posted: Updated:

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) -- The Cleveland Cavaliers say forward Kevin Love won't play in Game 3 of the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors because of a concussion.
   Love, who was injured in Sunday's Game 2, took part in the team's shootaround Wednesday morning, a positive step toward his return to the floor. But the 27-year-old has not been cleared by doctors and will miss Game 3 on Wednesday night.
   Love has been following the league's concussion protocol since he was diagnosed with the head injury, a result of him taking an elbow to the back of the head from Warriors forward Harrison Barnes.
   According to the protocol, Love is required to gradually increase his physical activity and remain symptom free before he can be cleared.
   Love is averaging 16.5 points and a team-leading 9.4 rebounds in 16 postseason games. He missed the finals last year after dislocating his left shoulder earlier in the playoffs and undergoing surgery.
