LeBron James was able to finish the Miami Heat game versus the Utah Jazz after rolling his ankle but the biggest question was how he was feeling the following day at practice.

As a precaution, he was held out of today's practice but his status for tomorrow's game will be determined tomorrow after more treatment.

"It's a little sore," James said after practice. "I'm getting around the clock treatment and we'll play it by ear. We're a long term team and I'm a long term player. I'm going to try and police myself with this (ankle)."

LeBron admitted that if the game was to have been played tonight, he wouldn't play.

"He's getting a lot of treatment today and a lot of rest," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra remarked. "We'll see how he feels tomorrow."
