MANILA--Waiting for LeBron James' return to the Philippines? We're afraid we've got some bad news for you.

Nike announced on Wednesday the cancellation of the Cleveland Cavalier's "Battle the Doubt" tour supposed to take place at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City on Thursday citing logistic concerns.

The said sports apparel's statement read, "Due to logistical challenges, Nike has made the difficult decision to cancel the [Quezon City] portion of LeBron James' Asia tour. We apologize to all the fans in the Philippines and will look to reschedule the tour in the future."

This would have been LeBron's third visit to the Philippines and first since lifting his hometown team to its first-ever NBA title.
