I wouldn’t be shocked if LeBron had a minor concussion, but they couldn’t call it that and then put him back in the game, so it was disguised as a neck strain.
In the postgame press conference, Ty Lue says it affected LeBron’s play in 2nd half.
Here is the quote via Larry Brown Sports.
“It was a tough collision — it knocked his head sideways,” Cavs head coach Ty Lue said after the game. “When he came back, I don’t think he had the same punch that he had before he left, as far as attacking the basket, playing with that force and power we talked about at shootaround. We’ll see how he feels.”
