LeBron James out, being rested Friday night vs. Pacers
Kevin Love, it’s your show.
Kyrie Irving was already out due to a strained shoulder, now comes word that LeBron James will be out for the Cavaliers’ game Friday against the Pacers. Dave McMenamin of ESPN broke the news, since confirmed by the Cavaliers themselves.
This is not good news if you are a Cavs fan.
This will be LeBron's 11th game missed this season. Cleveland is 2-8 without him so far.— Dave McMenamin (@mcten) February 27, 2015
That said, David Blatt gets it — the Cavaliers are not playing for a February Friday in Indiana, they are playing for June. Irving healthy and LeBron rested matter far, far more important to the team.
