LeBron James sprained his ankle in the third quarter of the Miami Heat's game against the Utah Jazz and is considered questionable for Miami's game against the Indiana Pacers Wednesday night, reports Brian Windhorst of ESPN. Here's a GIF of the injury from Monday:
And here's the aftermath of it:
James returned to the game after tweaking his ankle and finished the night with a team-high 30 points on 13-for-17 shooting along with nine rebounds and nine assists in the 117-92 victory. He's played in all 24 of the Heat's games this season and leads the team in points, assists and rebounds per game.
The Heat's depth at the wings could be thin if James misses time because of the injury. Michael Beasley missed Miami's game Monday with a strained left hamstring.
The Pacers recently defeated the Heat 90-82 in the first match-up since Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals. The Heat's upcoming schedule includes three straight home games before the team goes on a four-game road trip on the West coast.
