Cavs News: LeBron Out with Wrist Injury, Doubtful for Friday

The injury occurred late in the third quarter of Tuesday night’s 103-95 win against the Detroit Pistons at The Palace of Auburn Hills when James fell down awkwardly on his right wrist under the basket. The injury wasn’t serious enough to make him exit, as James finished the game with a clutch performance.
James was given an MRI at the Cleveland Clinic on Wednesday afternoon, as tests showed there was no structural damage done to his right wrist.
“I broke my wrist before,” James said Tuesday. “I landed on my wrist like that and actually, it was the other way around. I actually got taken out the air in high school and broke my wrist.”
However, this news should cause great concern for Cavs fans since the team seems to struggle so mightily when James is out of the lineup.
Cavs with LeBron: 25-12, 47% FG pct, 13.8 fast-break PPG Cavs without LeBron: 1-8, 40% FG pct, 6.2 fast-break PPG

James had also been an absolute monster statistically in his return to the lineup, while his other healthy teammates were finally able to establish a great team chemistry as of late.
LeBron is averaging 30.5 points, 6.8 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 2.0 steals on 50.6% FG since his 8-game hiatus. Not bad, not bad.
