LeBron James Opens Up about 2010 Injury

In an unexpected show of solidarity, (LeBron) James talked extensively for the first time about what he felt was a similar injury he suffered in 2010. During those playoffs when James played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, he nebulously complained about a right elbow injury. At one point, he took a free throw left-handed because he said the elbow was bothering him.
He got an MRI for it but never directly discussed it at the time or, really, ever since. Until Monday night, which was three years and one day after his unusually poor performance in Game 5 against the Boston Celtics, did he refer to it to sympathize with (Dwyane) Wade’s situation.
“My last year in Cleveland, I had an elbow injury that lingered throughout the playoffs,” said James, who has often worn on a padded sleeve on the elbow since that injury.
“I just tried to go out there and give it all you got. It sucks because you know you can play much better. You know you can do things but the injury is not allowing you to do it. It was on my shooting arm, so it was very tough. So I know what he’s going through.”
