LeBron James has a strained elbow, bone bruise

Lebron_240 Cleveland Cavaliers' star Lebon James received X-rays and an MRI on Wednesday night, and the tests revealed that he has a strained right elbow and a bruised bone near the elbow.

The NBA's MVP, however, is not expected to miss any playoff games. He will have daily treatments and another MRI next week.

James has been wearing a padded sleeve over his elbow, which he says occasionally goes numb.

The Cavaliers eliminated Chicago in five games in the opening round of the playoffs and will play the Boston Celtics on Saturday.
