ESPN.com is reporting that the Cavs expect LeBron back in the lineup on Friday and that they are taking a wait and see approach in regard to Antawn Jamison. If you caught Tuesday’s game against the Spurs, you know Jamison left with a knee issue. It looks as though he is going to be OK as the MRI came back negative. Here is the report from ESPN:
Cleveland coach Mike Brown said on Wednesday that he expects James to play when the Cavaliers visit Philadelphia on Friday.
James has missed two games to rest a tender right ankle he twisted last Friday against Detroit. Brown wanted to use the break in the schedule to allow James to rest.
Jamison missed the fourth quarter of Monday’s win against the Spurs with a sore left knee. An MRI on Tuesday showed no damage, but Jamison says he has a cyst in the knee that periodically fills with fluid.
He will be a game-time decision Friday, but plans to be ready on Sunday when Cleveland hosts Boston.
