SAN ANTONIO — Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James suffered a blow to the middle of the upper back area in the third quarter that forced him to leave the game Monday with his team behind 24 points to the San Antonio Spurs.

James absorbed the blow standing under the basket as Spurs forward/center David Lee pulled down a rebound with his elbow coming into contact with the Cavaliers forward. The blow occurred with 28 seconds remaining in the third quarter, and left James lying on the court writing in pain for approximately five minutes.

James immediately walked over to the bench with assistance from teammates, but left the court and headed to the locker room with approximately eight minutes left to play.
