• Kevin Love
    C/F, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love was excused from Wednesday's NBA finals media day due to remaining in concussion protocol.

    This isn't a great sign with Game 1 of the NBA Finals just a day away. Love is a notoriously slow healer so the Cavs have to be concerned with his status for Thursday. If the big man were to sit then Jeff Green would be called upon to step up, Tristan Thompson would see more minutes at center and Larry Nance Jr. would see more run off the bench as well. Even if Love does play, he has notoriously struggled in the NBA Finals against the Warriors in seasons past. With no Kyrie Irving to take the pressure off, the former UCLA product will be a target of switches on defense and will rarely have a mismatch to switch onto offensively.
