Indiana Pacers All-Star swingman Paul George was diagnosed with a concussion Wednesday just hours after he took a hit to the head from Dwyane Wade during Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals, the team announced.
George now will begin the NBA-mandated protocol for return to action, the Pacers said. There is no timeframe to complete it.
Game 3 is Saturday night in Miami with the series tied at 1-1.
Wade accidentally hit George in the back of the head with his knee during the fourth quarter Tuesday night as the two were battling for a loose ball. George remained in the game for the duration of the Pacers' 87-83 loss, but afterward he told reporters that he had blacked out and then had blurred vision in the contest's final four or five minutes.
