SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James is getting closer to a return to action.

James missed his eighth consecutive game Sunday against the Sacramento Kings due to a left knee injury and lower back strain. However, Cleveland coach David Blatt said it is very possible that James would return at some point during the team’s road trip, which stretches three more games.

Blatt said he hoped James would be able to do some “live” work in practice Monday for the first time since being sidelined.

“We’ve entered this process with the express idea of getting him back 100 percent,” Blatt said before the game. “When he’s ready, that’s when he’ll play.”

James, who last played Dec. 28 against the Detroit Pistons, ranks second in the NBA with an average of 25.2 points per game.
