Kevin Love exited Game 2 of the NBA Finals due to experiencing dizziness at the start of the second half. After leaving the game, Love would not return as the Cavaliers fell to the Warriors, 110-77.
The 6-foot-10 forward suffered a head injury when Golden State's Harrison Barnes crashed into the back of Love's head with his elbow on an offensive rebound. The NBA released this statement in regards to Love's injury:

If Love is unable to play in Game 3, Channing Frye would take his place in the starting lineup.
Prior to leaving Game 2, Love had struggled in the NBA Finals thus far. He has converted on just 37.5 percent of his shots in the Finals and is shooting just 39.2 percent from the field during the playoffs.
