LeBron James out with wrist injury

Cleveland star LeBron James was scratched from Wednesday`s NBA game against Portland and the Cavaliers said he could also miss their Friday contest because of a sprained wrist.

The four-time league MVP injured his right wrist against Detroit on Tuesday when he hit the floor awkwardly under the basket after trying to block a shot.

He is averaging 26.4 points, 7.4 assists and 5.6 rebounds in 37 games since returning to the Cavaliers in the offseason.

The Cavaliers are 1-8 in games without him this season.
