LeBron Elbow Watch: Strain, Bone Bruise

Via ESPN.com:

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.

    dear lebron, save the drama for your mama.

    Is there anywhere on the internet we can get the data on how well he shoots with his left compared to his right hand? I know someone’s compiled that sort of information. I wonder if there’s something in there we can get some hope for on shutting him down.

    Will he be more tempted to penetrate and drive less; less contact ; if the reports of a bruise and a strain is actually true.

    If i am a magics fan, i wd be salivating ; Hawks are still stuck in round one, Celtics and Cavs series should be tough esp on some of the older guys and perhaps Lebron ; and Magic would be all ready and rested.. I dont like Lakers to win ; if not for Celtics, I would pick magic to win

  • Perry

    Until further notice Magic are the best team in basketball. As for LBJ’s elbow…poor, poor baby.

  • Lebron is such a attention-starved drama queen. Pleeeease. I agree that the Magic are salivating. Whichever team survives this series has to play a pissed off from last year, well rested Magic team.

    I gotta agree more with Melas on the Jones that LeBron’s lefty shot wasn’t out of necessity so much as an attempt to have his “Jordan with his eyes closed” free-throw moment.
