INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) -- Cavaliers star LeBron James will not undergo another planned MRI on his injured right elbow.
As James practiced Thursday before leaving for Boston, a team spokesman said doctors don't feel an additional MRI is necessary "at this point." Last week, an examination revealed that James has a strained elbow and bone bruise, an injury that has been bothering him for several weeks.
The team also tried to clear up confusion about the number of MRIs James has undergone. The team says he has only had one.
James has been resting and getting treatment on the elbow since Cleveland's Game 2 loss. In that game, he scored 24 points but was unusually passive during long stretches. James has said the elbow occasionally gets numb.
