Miami Heat rumors address the LeBron James injury from Monday night (Dec. 16). While more Miami Heat rumors may address the situation as the week progresses, it looks like James might bounce back from a twisted ankle rather quickly. It was reported by ESPN that he was able to sub back into the game after getting some extended rest on the sidelines. That's a good sign moving forward, but the team will likely check it out further on Tuesday (Dec. 17).
James continues to put up numbers that could end with him winning another NBA MVP Award. Despite playing only 34 minutes against the Jazz, he finished with 30 points, nine rebounds, and nine assists. He now has season averages of 25.3 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 6.5 assists per game. He is doing it all while shooting an astounding 59.8 percent from the field, putting him in some very elite company when it comes to field goal percentage leaders of all-time.
While it is clear that this LeBron James injury is going to pop up in Miami Heat rumors throughout the week, it seems like something that he goes through almost every season. The next game is an important one for the team, as they will host the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night (Dec. 18). Playing at home should allow him to get good treatment from the team's trainers and get him back out there. If there is any worry about the injury, the team could end up sitting him for a game or two.
