Lebron JamesÂ said that his back actually has been bothering him for a few weeks.
He was held out of practice today in hopes he can get some rest and treatment to get him ready for the next gameÂ on Wednesday against New Jersey.
“I told him just to watch TV,” Mike Brown said.
“One day helps,” Lebron James said. “But it’s something where you need a little more than one day.”
Brown said sitting out a game or more was not out of the question even if the Cavs haven’t clinched the fourth spot in the playoffs.
The team have been battling with back problems throughout the season,
centers Zydrunas Ilgauskas and Ben Wallace have both missed time due to back trouble this season.
