CLEVELAND -- The flu bug has bitten LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

James missed the club's final home exhibition game against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night because of flu-like symptoms that have been bothering him for several days. Forward Darnell Jackson and guard Coby Karl were also out with the flu.

James and his two teammates were told to stay home so they don't spread the flu.

As a standard precaution, all of the players will be tested for the H1N1 virus, team officials said.

The NBA's reigning MVP, James has been under the weather for the past few days. He was sent home from practice on Tuesday and was not at the Wednesday morning shootaround.

In addition, the Cavaliers will be without guards Mo Williams (groin), Delonte West (personal reasons) and forward Danny Green (leg bruise).

West returned to practice this week with the Cavs, who allowed him to leave the team to attend to medical and personal issues. West has been treated for bipolar disorder, and last month he was arrested near his home in Maryland on misdemeanor weapons possession charges.

During media day, West indicated he had stopped taking his medications this summer.

The Cavaliers gave West the option of working out at Quicken Loans Arena or staying at the team's training facility in Independence. He chose to stay at Cleveland Clinic Courts.

Coach Mike Brown said there is no timetable for West to make his preseason debut.

"I'm literally taking it one day at a time," Brown said. "I haven't thought much about it except to make sure he is OK."

Why are people hating on LeBron for sitting out a preseason game??

What would be the point of playing with the flu?? Yeah, let's take the chance of getting even sicker by playing in a game that's not even going to effect our record. It's a preseason game!!!!

One time when I was younger, I got to see Jordan break his arm during a pickup game in the street. He got up, limped and kept playing - he even dunked it from the 3 point line, jumping off his broken arm.

LeBron or Wade could never do that, that is the reason NBA players are so weak these days

The title was obviously exaggerated.

But it would be big news if he had the Swine Flu.

And if you clearly read the article, they didn't play him because they didn't want him to spread it to other players.

It never said "Breaking News" on ESPN; on the site or the channel. It wasn't even on the front page until early this morning, where I think it was 4th or 5th on the headlines (next to Wade not playing), now it's listed 8th on the headlines.

While I'd love to engage in this little LeBron roast as well, H1N1 is much more serious than just the normal flu (if that's what he has). It's already claimed several lives across the US so this could possibly turn out worse than expected.

LeBron James has tested positive for Influenza A and is being treated as if he has the swine flu.

James has yet to receive the results of a test for the H1N1 virus, which is a strain of Influenza A.

Despite the illness, James returned to practice on Thursday and will travel to Texas with the team.

Six Cavaliers are currently experiencing flu-like symptoms.

Damn you ESPN! If Lebron's name wasn't up there this would have meant nothing

The headline under LeBron missing the game because of the flu was "Wade misses game". Do you want them to tell us this when Mark Blount misses a game? No. He's the biggest star in the game. People care. You can't blame ESPN for reporting this...they wouldn't be where they are now if they didn't focus more on the stars.


its about bashing BSPN, not Lebron........IDIOT!


Try to understand what's going on before u post

No. You posted it to bash both. That's fine. You only post pro-Laker articles, articles that slight your Lakers, or anti-LeBron threads. I'd say 95% of all the threads you've made fall under those categories. It's fine...but don't get so defensive, that actually makes you less believable.

Who the **** are you to tell me what I can say? It was all in good fun. Read my post above this you little wanker and see what I said. God damn noobs......
