EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -LeBron James said his pregnant girlfriend was fine Friday, two days after she was taken to the hospital during Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals in Cleveland.
Savannah Brinson, expecting the couple's second child next month, left Wednesday night's game at halftime. James said he was told of her situation and was ``a little concerned, of course,'' and was updated throughout the game.
``You always want your family to be protected, you want them to be fine,'' James said before Game 6 of the series. ``They ensured me that she was OK so I believed what I heard.''
Neither James nor the Cavs have said what was wrong. Coach Mike Brown said he visited the hospital after the game, but left all questions for James.
James also said his knee was a ``hundred percent'' after he was forced to leave Game 5 in the final minute after banging and cutting his knee while chasing a loose ball.
