MIAMI -- Heat forward LeBron James was sent home from the team's shootaround practice Thursday morning because of illness, and is a game-time decision for Miami's matchup with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra says guard Dwyane Wade's status remains day-to-day with a sprained right ankle. Wade will not play Thursday night.

It's the second straight game Wade has missed with the ankle problem and the fifth overall missed because of injuries so far this season. Wade sat out three games earlier this month with a sore left foot.

James has been battling flu-like symptoms for much of this week.
