Mike Dunleavy exits game vs. Bucks after head injury
With the game starting to get away from the defending NBA champs in the third quarter, Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue decided to make a mass substitution, bringing in Chris Andersen, Jordan McRae, DeAndre Liggins, James Jones, and Mike Dunleavy. Lue’s message of displeasure with the effort to the team was clear.
Later on in the 4th quarter, Cavaliers forward Mike Dunleavy suffered a hit to the head due to an on-court collision with Giannis Antetokounmpo on the baseline. After the hit, Dunleavy fell to the floor, seemingly dazed, before getting up a couple seconds later.
Although he seemed fine at first, Cleveland called a timeout to get Dunleavy out of the game, which led to him being escorted to the locker room for further evaluation on his head. His getting up right away doesn’t mean that he doesn’t possibly have a concussion or concussion-like symptoms
After the game, Cavs broadcaster Fred McLeod said Dunleavy was feeling better and that he would be reevaluated on Wednesday.
Mike Dunleavy feeling better will be reevaluated tomorrow
