Cavs forward LeBron James suffered a scratched cornea in Friday’s game against the Hornets and may be held out of Saturday’s game against the Wizards.
James was briefly poked in the eye by Jeremy Lamb in the third quarter of Friday’s win over the Hornets and was examined by the team physician after the game. In addition, James also took a hard fall on his lower back in the fourth quarter. James said “if coach decides to give me a game off (Saturday), it’s not because I’m resting. It’s because I’m banged up.” We will have to wait until closer to game-time for an official ruling.
