Update: James told reporters before the game Wednesday night he will play, despite being limited by the ankle. 

LeBron James missed shootaround Wednesday and is a gametime decison for the Heat's game against the Pacers in Miami. James tweaked his ankle vs. the Jazz Monday night.

James is averaging 25 points, seven rebounds, and seven assists on a ridiculous 60 percent shooting this season.
