Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James suffered a bone contusion in his right hand after punching a white board following the Game 1 loss of the NBA Finals, according to multiple reports.
James said postgame tonight, “I played the last three games pretty much with a broken hand.”
LeBron had two MRI’s and has been wearing a soft cast. He kept it quiet so that the Warriors didn’t know about it.
The Cavs, of course, lost Game 1 on the road. The game went into overtime after George Hill missed the second free throw and then J.R. Smith got the rebound, but dribbled the ball out to the perimeter, clearly not knowing that the game was tied.
James was visibly frustrated after the play and admitted postgame tonight that the injury was self-inflicted and was because of the emotion of losing Game 1.
LeBron averaged 34.0 points, 9.0 assists and 9.1 rebounds during the 2018 postseason.
