UPDATE: LeBron has been ruled out for tonight's game. Brian Windhorst tweeted that if this were the playoffs, he'd play but will sit because it's just January.

LeBron James has missed one game already with a sprained left ankle and it's looking like he'll miss another.

LeBron didn't partake in the Heat's shootaround this morning and coach Erik Spoelstra listed him as "doubtful," although there's still a chance he could go.

We saw what happened to the Heat without LeBron as the Nuggets completely blasted Miami Thursday. There may have been more to it other than just missing James though as that game came as the second of a back-to-back in which the Heat had a good long flight from Los Angeles to Denver. So they may have been worn out as well as missing their best player.

Reserve James Jones started in LeBron's place last time so it'd be assumed that would be the case again tonight if LeBron can't go.

numnut! I hope you are not refering to The Heat as the best team or the worst team!
last year they were a 5th seed playoff team, with a record of 47-35. And this year they are not the best team. Plus the additional addition
of Chris Bosh requires that he be given some of the credit for the improvement.

Anyone who has every played basketball knows that you do not play with a sprained ankle unless you absolutely have to. LeBron should keep his mouth closed some but calling him a piece of garbage is unnecessary. He's the only man in the NBA who can turn the NBA's worst team into the best team and a mentally weak player is not capable of doing that.

Peace back at ya

Actually the real issue is that he knows that Rose is gonna tear the Heat apart and he doesn't wanna be part of the embarassment. You know the type of leader he is.
Rose for MVP!!!

LeBron doubtful tonight against Chicago

If he is hurt, he is hurt. You are still talking about one of the best players in the league. The Heat are not being stupid not playing him, just cautious. Pespect Lebron's word if he can not go, no matter what prsonal feelings you have for him.

That's cause people are getting wise to the NBA bullshit! If you want to watch real basketball the NCAA is where it's at!! With that said you can't tell me, love him or hate him, that he's responsable for that. You go to his games to get entertained by his talents not to get your emotional needs fufilled!
