After being diagnosed with a severe case of the knee injury last week, LeBron James suffered what some doctors have described as “a major setback.”
His status for Sunday’s game against the Orlando Magic is uncertain.
“He’s had a setback,” Andersen said in a conference call with reporters on Thursday.
“Obviously it’s not something we’re going to get over with in a week. “
It’s a real setback.” “

The Celtics (4-2) fell behind by 21 points with 3:05 left in the first quarter of the Cavaliers-Warriors series.
James returned to the court in the fourth quarter but had trouble staying in the game.
He had to be helped off the court and was assisted by Celtics coach Brad Stevens.
He was replaced by Jeff Green.
James is averaging 24.4 points, 6.5 rebounds and 4.2 assists in 17 games this season.
He is also averaging 19.6 points in his last five games.
He has been limited to just four games this year because of a sprained left ankle.
The Celtics, who are 3-0 against the Cavaliers, beat the Cavaliers in Cleveland on Sunday.
