Kevin Love injury update: Cavs F clears concussion protocol, will play in Game 1 | NBA

The Cavaliers received good news regarding Kevin Love.

The team announced the power forward cleared concussion protocol Thursday and will be in the lineup for Game 1 of the NBA Finals against the Warriors.

Love suffered a concussion in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals when he knocked heads with Celtics rookie Jayson Tatum. Jeff Green started for Love in Game 7 and scored 19 points with eight rebounds in an 87-79 Cleveland victory.

Unfortunately, Love has a history of missing time in the Finals. He missed a game in the 2016 Finals with a concussion and sat out the entire 2015 Finals with a separated shoulder.

He is averaging only 13.9 points per game in the playoffs after averaging 17.6 in the regular season.
