“Cavaliers forward LeBron James underwent further evaluation at Cleveland Clinic Sports Health last evening by Cavaliers Head Team Physician Dr. Richard Parker and Dr. Mark Schickendantz. He was re-examined with x-rays and MRI reviewed. LeBron has a strain of his right elbow and a bone bruise of his olecranon. He will undergo daily treatments and revaluation and a repeat MRI will be performed next week. It is not anticipated that he would miss any playing time. His status will be updated as appropriate.”

In technical terms it is a “bone bruise of his olecranon.” In lay terms, it means he banged his elbow and it is sore.
So there’s the official word. What this all means is exactly what we thought, that LeBron will play and it will depend on his pain tolerance how effective he is.
The pessimist inside wonders if this is the whole story with the injury. Let’s face it, the Cavs have nothing to gain by disclosing the full nature of the injury right now. I know it’s shocking to think that an organization might possibly not tell the world how injured it’s star player is. Tom Brady shakes his head in shame.
