Phil Ellsworth / ESPN Images(CLEVELAND) -- Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love had to leave Wednesday night's game against the Los Angeles Lakers after injuring his shoulder late in the second quarter.

After being evaluated by the team's medical staff, the Cavaliers said Love suffered a contusion on his left shoulder -- the same shoulder he dislocated during the playoffs last year. That injury forced him to miss the rest of the postseason but this time around, Love said he didn't expect to be sidelined.

"Just a stinger, and doctors decided we'll be cautious and use the break for it to feel better, but it actually feels OK right now," he said after the game, which the Cavs won 120-111.

Cleveland's next game will be on Feb. 18, and with the All-Star game this weekend, which Love will not be a part of, he will have several days to rest his shoulder before returning to practice.

Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images(OKLAHOMA CITY) -- The wife of Oklahoma City Thunder assistant coach Monty Williams has passed away after being involved in a car accident, the team announced on Wednesday. Ingrid Williams was 44 years old.

“The Thunder organization has heavy hearts tonight with the news of Ingrid's passing," the team said in a statement Wednesday. "Words cannot adequately describe how deep our sorrow is for the loss of Monty’s wife."

The statement continued: "Our thoughts and prayers are with Monty and his family, and we will support him in every way possible. We know the entire community of Oklahoma City has them in their prayers."

According to ESPN, Ingrid Williams was hit head-on by another car while driving in Oklahoma City Tuesday night. She died in the hospital the following night from her injuries. The other driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

Ingrid and Monty, who came to Oklahoma City in 2015 after serving as the head coach for the New Orleans Pelicans for five years,  have five children together.

Pelicans forward Anthony Davis and guard Eric Gordon, whom Monty Williams both coached, sent their condolences to his family on Twitter.

Completely devastated. Ingrid Williams was like a 2nd mother to me when I got to NOLA. My thoughts & prayers are with Monty & the family

— Anthony Davis (@AntDavis23) February 11, 2016

Shivam Saxena/Hindustan Times via Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The debate over concussions in professional sports is now turning to wrestling after a big announcement from WWE star Daniel Bryan, who says he’s retiring because of repeated head injuries.

“I took a test that said that maybe my brain wasn’t as okay as I thought it was,” the 34-year-old wrestling champion said, announcing his retirement in front of fans.

Bryan said he had already suffered three concussions within the first five months of his wrestling career.

“It’s gets to a point where, after 16 years, that adds up to a lot of concussions,” he said.

Unlike many professional athletes in sports where concussions are a constant danger, Bryan is now one of the first to walk away before too much damage is done — something he’s now encouraging other athletes to consider.

“You have a responsibility to yourself, to your family, to your friends just to protect yourself,” Bryan told ESPN.

Bryan has also made clear that he does not blame the sport or the WWE. In fact, it was the WWE that wouldn’t clear Bryan to return to the ring after his last concussion, despite several doctors giving the wrestler the green light.

Jeff Gross/Getty Images(BALTIMORE) -- The Baltimore Orioles are in negotiations with free-agent right-hander Yovani Gallardo, ESPN reports.

The  three-year deal is expected to be valued in the range of $40-45 million, sources told ESPN.

Gallardo went 13-11 last season for the Texas Rangers.

If the team is able to reach a deal with Gallardo,  the O's would relinquish their first-round pick in this year's MLB draft, according to ESPN.

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Peyton Manning reportedly got an unexpected delivery after comments he made in his post-Super Bowl interviews.

When asked what his next move would be after his Super Bowl win, Peyton said, "... I'm going to drink a lot of Budweiser tonight."

The Brewers Association's Craft Brew director Julie Herz decided to send Manning a variety set of the company's best-sellers which she says are better than Budweiser, according to ESPN.

"We've included a variety of choices which may satisfy the celebratory occasion more than a light American lager," Herz said in a letter that NFL Network's Ian Rapoport posted on Twitter.

Taylor Hill/Getty Images for Usher's New Look Foundation(NEW YORK) -- The WNBA announced Wednesday that former Atlanta city council president and current Coca-Cola executive Lisa Borders will become its fourth president, ESPN reports.

Borders will replace Laurel Richie, who left the league last November after serving as WNBA president for five seasons.

Borders discussed how her past experience will help in her new role.

"I've been a public servant, and that means you have to listen to your constituents," Borders said. "The same thing would be true being president of the WNBA. No one of us has all the answers, so it's important to be willing to be a good listener. My job is to serve the players, owners, and fans and be able to coalesce all that energy to amplify the league."

Borders added that she is a fan of the game as well.  "I'm a raving fan of the Dream," she said, laughing, though now she'll be in the neutral corner as league president. "I have spent the lion's share of my career carrying the torch for women, because I think it's the right thing to do.

Michael Hickey/Getty Images(BOSTON) -- University of North Carolina head basketball coach Roy Williams says he's okay after collapsing during the Tar Heels' game against Boston College Tuesday night.

Williams, 65, fell as he was about to huddle with his team on the sideline. He had been arguing a foul call before walking to the bench.

"I'm alive. I'm kicking," Williams told reporters after the game. "I've had some vertigo attacks over the last 17 or 18 years. This is the first time I really had one during a game."

The coach said the attacks happen when he jerks his head.

"Every attack that I've had is when I jerk my head quickly and the little -- I call them rocks cause my head is full of rocks -- rocks in my middle ear, one of the pebbles gets out of the train, out of the alignment, it bounces right on your inner ear and that's what causes the imbalance," he said.

UNC went on to beat Boston, 68-65.

Joe Faraoni / ESPN Images(NEW YORK) -- Fears about the Zika virus continue to grow in the U.S. and around the world, particularly in Brazil, where the next Olympic Games will take place in just six months.

U.S. soccer star Hope Solo says if she had to make a decision today on whether or not to go to Rio de Janeiro, she would skip the Summer Olympic Games.

"I would never take the risk of having an unhealthy child," Solo tells Sports Illustrated. "I don't know when that day will come for my husband and me but I personally reserve my right to have a healthy baby."

The current Zika virus outbreak was first detected in Brazil last May. The virus usually results in mild symptoms -- including fever, fatigue and rash -- that resolve in a week. However, it has been associated with a birth defect called microcephaly, which is characterized by an abnormally small brain and head.

While currently pregnant women are at risk of microcephaly, health authorities say there is no evidence that the virus could affect future pregnancies.
