LeBron James injured his ring finger against the Indiana Pacers on Monday night. The exact extent of the injury unknown.

LeBron James injured the ring finger on his non-shooting hand against the Indiana Pacers Monday night, league sources told ESPN. The exact extent of the injury is unknown, though sources said that it may be dislocated. The Miami Heat star did not practice Tuesday and gave no comment on the injury.

James apparently suffered the injury in the first quarter of the 105-90 loss. He did not leave the game due to the injury. Instead, he got some tape and continued to play, scoring 24 points and adding nine rebounds. He applied some ice to his finger after the game.

There is no official word yet on his status for Thursday night's home game against the Dallas Mavericks, though things look relatively optimistic considering his performance Monday. The Heat are looking to avoid their third straight loss.
