Does LeBron James Have Swine Flu?
The Cleveland Cavaliers are taking no chances. After LeBron James was diagnosed with the flu, the Cavs are treating LeBron as if he has swine flu. Even though the swine flu test results haven’t returned yet, the Cleveland medical staff is being proactive.
After missing two practices and a preseason contest, LeBron was back on the court on Thursday. Along with LeBron, Coby Karl and Darnell Jackson have been sidelined due to the flu.
Despite the fact that LeBron may have the swine flu, he’s looking at the bright side of the situation.
Said LeBron: “If it’s going to happen, now is the best time. I don’t wish anyone to be sick. I wish great health for everyone. But if this is the time the flu bug is going to hit our team, I’m glad it’s happening now.”
The Cavs have four more preseason games left. The next three are against Texan teams (the San Antonio Spurs and then the Dallas Mavericks twice) and the final exhibition outing is against the Boston Celtics. Cleveland also hosts the Celtics to begin the regular season. By then, LeBron should be fine — swine flu or no swine flu.
