The Cavaliers came into Wednesday’s game against the Chicago Bulls with their best record through 33 games (26-7) since 2008-09 (27-6). However, after a 106-94 loss, LeBron James admitted that progress has stalled on the defending champions’ quest for another title. Injuries certainly haven’t helped.

Kyrie Irving missed his third straight game (hamstring tightness), Kevin Love was out (food poisoning) and J.R. Smith has been lost for the majority of the regular season with a broken right thumb. James could not keep the Cavs’ 13-game winning streak intact despite 31 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists. “It can [wear on you],” James said after playing through an illness that caused him to miss shootaround Wednesday morning. “It’s just tough. It’s slowing up our process because of what we’re trying to build.

Jusuf Nurkic can’t seem to catch a figurative break when it comes to literal breaks.

The 7-0 center out of Bosnian and Herzegovina suffered a broken right wrist in the third quarter of Thursday’s game versus the Pacers Thursday night at the Moda Center.

The injury occurred around the 8:40 mark of the third quarter, as Nurkic fell after contesting a drive attempt by Pacers center Myles Turner. Nurkic took a hard fall to the floor and remained there for some time before getting up and immediately heading to the locker room with members of the team’s medical staff. X-rays taken taken during the game showed a fracture to his right wrist, which, depending on the severity and location of the break, could sideline the center for the foreseeable future.
