SEATTLE (AP) -LeBron James is questionable for the Cavaliers' game Thursday night against the Seattle SuperSonics, after spraining his ankle in the second quarter of a win over Portland.
A team spokesman said James, the NBA's leading scorer at 30.1 points per game, was examined Thursday morning and that he ``is currently listed as a game-time decision'' to play. James hurt his right ankle with 23 seconds left before halftime Wednesday night, but still played 44 minutes.
James finished with 37 points and 14 rebounds, and his layup with less than a second left gave Cleveland an 84-83 victory, its 13th win in 16 games.
The Cavaliers are already without forward Anderson Varejao, who was hurt Sunday in a victory over the Lakers, and starting guard Sasha Pavlovic.
Varejao is expected to miss up to four weeks with a left ankle sprain, and Pavlovic is out six weeks with a left mid-foot sprain.
The Cavaliers (25-19) enter Thursday's game against the Sonics (10-35) having won five straight road games for the first time since March 17-April 1, 1998.
