LeBron James has nearly 36 million followers on Instagram, so there is a fair chance you saw his footage of him on roller skates Sunday, skating along with Jeff Green. No, in case you're wondering, Green is not going to play tonight against Detroit. Green, James, and JR Smith were among those who appeared on James' Instagram account skating away on Sunday at a private party described internally on the Cavs as a "team bonding" event. It is not clear which other Cavs personnel attended. In Green's case, he will miss his third game out of the last four tonight because of lower back soreness. He was held out of Saturday's loss to Denver and on Saturday was also ruled out for tonight's game against the Pistons. In between, he went skating? Cavs staff, in talking with cleveland.com, said while the appearance of Green on roller skates at a time when he can't play because of a back injury is not a great look, the team's intent was to keep Green out of games for a period of five days to rest his body from the rigors of NBA court battles.
