Paul George diagnosed with concussion; Game 3 status uncertain. Story: http://t.co/tVLTP8ZznA

George reported he blacked out after Dwyane Wade accidentally kneed him in the head diving for a loose ball. He played the rest of the game. The NBA reports the Pacers followed all concussion protocols.
George’s status for Saturday’s Game Three is certainly in doubt. George would have to pass several key physical benchmarks to be cleared to play — and he MUST pass each physical benchmark in turn compared to his baseline from the beginning of the season.
This would obviously be a huge blow to the Pacers if he is unavailable.
