The Cavs said X-rays were negative, adding he would be evaluated again Thursday.
James returned to Cleveland's bench late in the third quarter, sporting a suit and turtleneck, with tape wrapped around his index and middle fingers on his non-shooting hand.
He appeared to be injured with 4:41 left in the first half, when Detroit center Nazr Mohammed fouled him. James made both free throws and stayed in the game.
James had 15 points and three assists in the first half, accounting for more than one-third of the Cavs' points, in a rematch of the Eastern Conference finals.
He had been sensational recently, including Tuesday night in an overtime win over Boston, and entered the game averaging 31.7 points, 8.5 assists and eight rebounds a game this season.
