LeBron careens into cameraman after foul, stays down for a stretch

CLEVELAND — It wasn’t flagrant, it was a smart playoff foul. LeBron James was driving toward the rim, Andrew Bogut fouled him to make sure he’d earn his points from the charity stripe.

But LeBron landed off balance and went careening into the cameramen. LeBron’s head hit hard on a camera, and he stayed down for a couple minutes, and pictures after showed a circle on LeBron’s head from the lens.

However, there wasn’t much blood, and he came back in to take his free throws — if he hadn’t taken the free throws he could not have returned to the game. LeBron didn’t come out immediately afterwards. There was no concussion test.
