LeBron James rolls ankle, questionable for Thursday

Jan 5, 2012, 2:15 AM EDT

Miami could be without LeBron James and Dwyane Wade on Thursday in Atlanta.

Wade was already day-to-day with a sore foot then late in the third quarter Wednesday night LeBron rolled his ankle when he inadvertently stepped on the foot of Paul George during a fast break.

LeBron stayed in the game for another seven minutes, but these injuries tend to be was worse after the game when the adrenaline stopped and the swelling kicked in. As LeBron said after the game to ESPN, it’s how the ankle feels in the morning that will be the big test.

Smart money says if LeBron can’t go Dwyane Wade will suddenly be well enough to play in the rematch against the Hawks, which already beat Miami once.

    Sit them both. Who cares about a rematch against the Hawks. This isn’t about beating the Hawks.

    Beasley would have rolled his ankle, and then a fatty.

    Kobes playing through a torn ligament in his shooting hand, haha kobe is g compared to these queens! Like the beasly comment! Why did miami get rid of him!?!?!? He was a very good player and still is, and on a rookie contract for another 2 years last year, sounds like a management problem,they could sit lebron alot more in times like this last year!you can even play him in 4th quarters when lebron pulls his disappearing act haha
