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."
