(SB Nation Tampa, Steven Godfrey) ESPN's Chris Broussard is citing unnamed sources that Lebron James has an injury to his left ring finger, and that the injury might be a dislocation.

James appeared to have suffered the injury Monday night in a 105-90 loss to the Pacers, Miami's sixth loss on the road in the month of March. James did not leave the game against the Pacers, and played the finger taped, scoring 24 points and nine rebounds, hitting 9 of 21 shots.

The Heat did not practice on Tuesday, and issued no official comment regarding the injury. James has hit only 40 percent of his shots over the last five games, despite averaging a career-best 53 percent this season.

The Heat return to action Thursday night, hosting the defending NBA Champion Mavericks in Miami.
