MRI confirms Cavaliers' LeBron James has sprained finger


INDEPENDENCE - No new news was good news as far as the Cavaliers and LeBron James are concerned.

The 6-foot-8, 250-pounder underwent an MRI on his left index finger Thursday at Cleveland Clinic Toronto, which confirmed the original diagnosis of a sprain.

James suffered the injury late in the second quarter Wednesday in Detroit and did not play in the second half of the Cavaliers` 109-74 loss at The Palace of Auburn Hills.

X-rays taken at The Palace were negative, with the MRI on Thursday showing no new damage.

James, who leads the NBA in scoring at 30.7 points a game, is listed as "day-to-day."

The 9-7 Cavaliers are calling the small forward, who is also averaging 7.6 rebounds and 8.1 assists, a "game-time decision" for tonight`s game in Toronto.
