Cavaliers' James out again
CLEVELAND -- 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."
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.
No X-rays or MRI exam was done on his foot and Jamison expects to play Sunday against the Magic in a possible prelude to the Eastern Conference finals.
"It looked worse than what really happened," Jamison said.
Williams, like James, was a healthy scratch after scoring a season-high 35 points Thursday against the Bulls. Gibson has a mid-foot contusion and hasn't played since March 26, while O'Neal continues to recover from thumb surgery.
Delonte West, who missed two games with a strained back, started against Indiana.
