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 has missed just 12 games over the past three seasons, with many of those as simply rest nights. James has also battled a back injury for most of the year.
James is averaging 25 points, seven rebounds, and seven assists on a ridiculous 60 percent shooting this season.
