Miami Heat guard Mike Miller was forced to leave Tuesday's game against the Indiana Pacers on Thursday after taking an elbow to the head, apparently suffering a concussion. After the game, Miller was exhibiting symptoms consistent with those of a concussion while also suffering a contusion above his right eye.
He left the arena in a wheelchair nursing a knot above his eye after taking an elbow from Jeff Foster in the third quarter of the Heat's 110-103 victory over the Indiana Pacers. A Heat staff member went to the hospital with him. The team called the injury a "contusion" over his right eye.
It's the second time in less than a week Miller has underwent concussion tests and third time in as many games he's take a blow to the head. Ahead of the Heat's loss to the Boston Celtics on Sunday, Miller was reportedly examined by doctors after exhibiting concussion-like symptoms after taking a blow to the head on Friday against the Detroit Pistons. He was cleared to play, but suffered another hard blow to the head after a hard screen by Kevin Garnett.
