LeBron James May Sit out Rest of Regular Season
LeBron James’ regular season could be over.
James was one of four starters missing for Friday’s game against the Indiana Pacers. With home-court advantage already clinched throughout the playoffs, coach Mike Brown didn’t rule out his healthy superstar also sitting against Orlando on Sunday and Atlanta on Wednesday.
"There’s a chance," Brown said. "I talked about that with my staff and I talked about it a little bit with him, too. We’ll take that one game at a time and see how it goes."
James, who missed Thursday’s game at Chicago, was joined on the bench Friday by starters Mo Williams, Antawn Jamison and Shaquille O’Neal and reserve Daniel Gibson.
Jamison was injured Thursday when Chicago’s Luol Deng stepped on his right foot during a drive to the basket. Jamison grimaced in pain when it happened, but by Friday was walking without a limp and taking part in pregame shootaround.
