Instant analysis of the LeBron James injury news. Bad news for construction (using the Frank Vogel home remodeling analogy), and worrisome in how we look at LeBron, physically. What will it do for the rotation in the short term?

If that keeps up, he would join LeBron (2x) as the only non-bigs to average 25 PPG on 55% shooting in the last 35 seasons. PM
