CLEVELAND (AP) LeBron James has never looked like this.

Briefly sporting googles to protect an eye injury, James is playing against the Washington Wizards on Saturday night after having his right cornea scratched during Friday's win at Charlotte. The Cavs listed him as questionable before announcing about two hours before tip-off that he would face the Wizards. James got poked in the eye in the third quarter by the Hornets' Jeremy Lamb but stayed in the game.

The NBA champions are 0-6 when James does not play.
