Report: ESPN Insider Says LeBron Played With Broken Right Hand After Game 1 Loss

LeBron James Angry Cavs

Following the conclusion of Game 4 of the 2018 NBA Finals on Friday night, a jaw-dropping revelation came to light regarding LeBron James‘ health throughout much of the series.

According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, James suffered a serious right hand injury after punching a blackboard following the Cleveland Cavaliersheartbreaking Game 1 loss last week.

This is a truly remarkable report. Not only does it show the true level of frustration James felt following the Game 1 defeat, it also helps explain his less-than inspiring shooting performances in the rest of the series.

After scoring 51 points and shooting 3-of-7 from beyond the arc in Game 1, James managed to surpass 30 points just once in the following three games, and went 3-of-11 from the three-point line in the rest of the series.

His injury will be something to keep an eye on going forward. While it certainly will not impact anything regarding his much-anticipated free agency, it will be fascinating to see what the extent of this secret injury truly was.
