The Cleveland Cavaliers forward waited for biopsy results after doctors at the Cleveland Clinic found a growth in the right side of his jaw. Although test results showed the growth was benign, James went through a five-hour surgery to remove it on June 3, just two days after the Cavs were eliminated in the Eastern Conference Finals.--Nazenet Habtezghi
