No LeBron tonight vs. Bulls

LeBron James will be inactive when the Cleveland Cavaliers visit the Bulls tonight at the United Center.

“He’s got some bumps and bruises and we just decided to rest him tonight,” Cleveland coach Mike Brown said of James.

The Cavaliers already have clinched the best record in the NBA and James said a few days ago that he wanted to get some rest down the stretch to be better prepared for the playoffs.

James not playing is a huge break for the Bulls, who are battling the Toronto Raptors for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

“Obviously, that’s a big factor, but Cleveland is still very talented,” Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro said. “[Andrew] Bogut was out last game and it didn’t do us much good. We have to play well and we have to find a way to get it.”
