According to ESPN, King James of the Cleveland Cavaliers has a strained elbow, bone bruise. As we all saw the injury seemed to get to James during the final minutes of their game five action against the Chicago Bulls at the Q.
The Cavaliers say James was re-examined Wednesday night by team doctors, who took more X-rays and an MRI. The tests revealed the strain and a bruised bone near the elbow.
James will have daily treatments and another MRI next week. The NBA’s MVP has been wearing a padded sleeve over his elbow, which has been bothering him for weeks. He said his elbow occasionally goes numb.
The Cavs eliminated Chicago in five games in the opening round and begin their best-of-seven series against the Boston Celtics on Saturday.
James went to the line and shot right handed and was looking to be in some pain. He then proceeded to shoot the ball left handed and badly missed. The game could of cost them if the Bulls would of capitalized on it.
