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.
I still say this is a non-story until proven otherwise, though I concede LBJ shooting a semi-important (but not actually that important) foul shot left-handed may constitute proof in some courts of law. The elbow has been bothering him for “weeks,” and he’s been regularly dropping 35-8-8 sort of lines in the post-season.
