CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Lue coached the Cavs in the first half of Saturday's game against the Chicago Bulls, but did not join the team in the second half because of a health concern.
Head coach Tyronn Lue will "step back" from coaching the Cleveland Cavaliers to focus on health issues, according to a statement released by the team Monday morning.
According to Lue:
"I knew he was struggling, but he was never not himself."
The Cavs, currently third place in the East have had a few struggles this season. Key players have gone down with injuries and no the head coach. But LeBron says it's up to the team and the coaching staff to respond.
The squad faces off against the Bucks tonight in their first game back home after a 6 game stretch.
