Very little mention of Lebron possibly having a concussion after almost breaking Tatum's should with his big jaw last night.  Originally referred to as a neck sprain.  Rewatching it this morning his jaw and head go around, his legs go out from under him and we walked delicately back to locker room with a dazed look on his face.
What is concussion protocol for NBA?  Do the cavs only check this?

I was wondering about this myself. It didn't look too good. I didn't really care about whether it impacted his play or whatever, but from a player safety standpoint it seemed dodgy

I agree, he looked very dazzled after the hit from Tatum. I think the NBA concussion protocol is only triggered if a concussion is ascertained by the team doctor. After the game, James told the media that he was checked for multiple things and that he passed the tests:

"I was checked for multiple things and I passed," James told reporters in the postgame presser. "That's why I was able to come back and finish the half."

Therefore, I doubt that he will be put through the NBA concussion protocol.

I heard one commentator on nba tv (Antwan ?) say having played with Lebron and how tough he is he was surprised he took himself out and must have been shaken.
