CLEVELAND (AP) -Cavaliers star LeBron James did not practice Thursday because of a sore right big toe and was listed as probable for Friday's game against Sacramento.
James, who missed a career-high five games earlier this season with a sprained left index finger, scored 36 points in a 98-94 win over the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday night. The Cavaliers went 0-5 without James and at 15-17 are still trying to recover.
Coach Mike Brown said after practice that James was fine and likely would play Friday.
James leads the NBA in scoring with 29.1 points per game. He ranks eighth with 7.6 assists per game and averages 7.1 rebounds.
