CLEVELAND (AP) LeBron James is out for the Cleveland Cavaliers' game against Milwaukee.
James is sitting out his second straight game because of a sore left knee. He also missed the Cavaliers' loss Tuesday night in Atlanta on his 30th birthday.
Coach David Blatt said Kevin Love and Shawn Marion are highly questionable. Love left the game Tuesday because of back spasms, and Marion sat out with a sprained left ankle.
The Cavaliers, who have lost two in a row and three of four, have been hit by a rash of injuries. Kyrie Irving, Cleveland's All-Star point guard, returned Tuesday and scored 35 points after missing two games with a bruised left knee.
