After injuring his ankle left ankle in Monday’s win over the Jazz, LeBron James said Wednesday he will play against the Pacers.

James was considered a game-time decision Tuesday. He is averaging 25.3 points per game (the lowest mark since his rookie year) with 6.8 rebounds and 6.3 assists and is shooting a career-best 59.8 percent.

The Heat (18-6) lost to the Pacers, who they trail by two games in the standings, last week in their first meeting of the season.

What a convenient way to back out of a HUGE game.  This way, if they lose, its not because of LeChoke.

@CoachShetterly LeChoke? Have you lived in  a box the past two years? The man has carried an inept Chris Bosh and injured D Wade to two championships....calling him LeChoke is at least 2 years out of style.

@NFGregJJ @CoachShetterly sports are entertainment.  LeBron sells products.  But calling him great or his Basketball IQ off the charts is laughable.  Magic or Bird or Isiah never made two stupid moves in their whole postseason career as LeBron did in one finals game last year during crunch time.  LeBron should get a tattoo of Ray allen over his 2nd trophy
