The Cleveland Cavaliers' 90-87 win over the New York Knicks on Thursday night marked the team's fifth successive victory.
The pre-season favorites finally seem to be finding some form after a tough start to life with LeBron James back in the roster and now sit on a 10-7 record.
But while there is a growing air of positivity around the franchise reports today brought news that the Cavs fear one of their players suffered a concussion in the latter stages of their Madison Square Garden triumph.
The Cavaliers themselves confirmed that veteran Mike Miller had been exhibiting "concussion like symptoms", and will be following the requirements of the NBA's concussion policy in the coming days.
Per the team's official press release:
"Cavaliers forward Mike Miller left tonight's game against the New York Knicks with 2:28 left in the fourth quarter with concussion like symptoms.
"He was evaluated further following the game and has been placed in the NBA's concussion protocol program. He will remain in New York overnight for further examination."

- Cavs star has to stay in free agency
- Brooklyn Nets refusing to deal Cavs top trade target
The Cavaliers will be hoping that Miller can prove his health in the coming days with the team facing five games over the next week - including two back-to-backs.
The former Miami Heat man has been re-introduced into the rotation in the past couple of games and has played an effective part in allowing the likes of LeBron, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love to do their thing.
With the NBA protocol not having a specific timeframe for completion it is now down to Miller to go through the necessary steps on his return from New York.
With or without Miller in their rotation the Cleveland Cavaliers will be looking to push on and build on an impressive start to December.
Next up is a trip to Toronto to take on the Raptors - the last team to beat them back on November 23rd.
