LeBron could miss another game

Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) – Cleveland rookie LeBron James could miss
his second straight game with a nagging ankle injury.

James is hampered with a sprained right ankle he suffered during the fourth
quarter of Saturday’s 102-96 overtime win at Utah. James, who missed the first
game of his career on Tuesday against Seattle, is expected to be out for
Thursday’s contest versus Sacramento.

The 19-year-old participated in a shootaround Wednesday and, according to head
coach Paul Silas, isn’t ready to return.

James leads the Cavaliers in scoring with 20.4 points per contest.

Meanwhile, Cleveland sent forward Darius Miles to Portland. In exchange, the
Blazers sent point guard Jeff McInnis and center Ruben Boumtje Boumtje to the
Cavs.
