LeBron James

LeBron James’ frustration got the best of him after Game 1, resulting in an injury to his right hand.

The Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Golden State Warriors in heartbreaking fashion in Game 1. Afterward, James indicated it was one of the toughest losses of his career. James was so frustrated after the loss that he punched a board. The result was reportedly a bone contusion in his right hand.

The information was first reported by USA Today’s Sam Amick after Game 4.

After the series finally ended on Friday night, James appeared before the media with a cast on his hand. He publicly acknowledged the injury, saying he “pretty much played with a broken hand.”

LeBron reportedly had two MRIs on his hand after suffering the injury, which revealed a bone contusion. James said he kept quiet about it so the Warriors wouldn’t find out about it.

The Warriors were clearly the better team in the series. However, the Cavaliers had a real chance to steal Game 1. Unfortunately for them that did not happen and LeBron James has an injured hand to show for it.
