Mike Miller, the man who sort of won the Bucks game for the Cavs the other night, received a concussion against the Knicks less than twenty-four hours ago. Dave McMenamin is reporting that Miller will miss the game against Toronto tonight and then will undergo some more tests to reevaluate his playing status for the Monday game against Brooklyn. There is no certain timeline for his return. Miller hasn’t been contributing much for the team on the floor, but he has been very active talking to guys when they come to the bench. If he doesn’t get to travel with the team or hangout, he will surely be missed.
The concussion happened after he was whistled for an offensive foul while shooting a three pointer with under five minutes left in the fourth quarter. Carmelo Anthony hit him with his arm closing out on the shot. You can watch the play here. It didn’t look like Miller was too shaken up at time of the play because he managed to walk it off and stay on the floor for another two minutes. Hopefully, Mike is okay and doesn’t shy away from trying to draw contact on the three shot in the future.
