The Cavaliers (9-9) are 0-2 without their superstar forward. Coach Mike Brown wouldn't comment on whether James' injury is worse than first anticipated.
James was hurt in the second quarter Wednesday night in a loss to Detroit, when Nazr Mohammed slapped at the ball as James began to shoot.
Devin Brown started in James' place the last two games and coach Mike Brown said a number of players including Devin Brown, Shannon Brown and Eric Snow could start Tuesday night against the New Jersey Nets.
James leads the NBA with 30.7 points per game. He's also averaging 7.6 rebounds and 8.1 assists.
