With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic creating an even more stressful time than usual for most, two celebrities who have been at the forefront of discussing mental health will do so with one another in front of a national audience.

On Wednesday, Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star forward Kevin Love will join Carson Daly on NBC's TODAY for a candid -- and relaxed -- conversation about managing stress and anxiety amid the coronavirus.

"I have to take a step back and just take a moment and consider what's going on now and say, 'You know what? I think everything's going to be OK.' I think that's lost on a lot of people during this," Love says in a sneak peek of the conversation.

"Those little moments are important," Daly says.

"Important, yeah and at the end of the day, doing stuff like this. This is obviously spreading a good message and continuing to pay it forward that way. But this is a connection," Love replies.

In 2018, Love opened up publically about his battles with mental health and anxiety, which he said even resulted in a panic attack during a game. With the NBA season having been suspended indefinitely due to the coronavirus, the 5-time All-Star has been at the forefront of the league's response, donating $100,000 to the arena staff at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse who could find themselves missing paychecks due to the absence of games and events.
