LeBron misses practice with bruised knee

Heat forward LeBron James received treatment for a knee contusion on Thursday and did not practice.

James injured his knee on Wednesday during the Heat's overtime victory against the Mavericks. It was the Heat's second victory in overtime in consecutive games. James combined to play 90 minutes in those games.

While he didn't practice with the team on Thursday, James did speak with reporters. The Heat plays the Bulls on Friday. When asked if he expects to play, James said, "Hopefully."

WOW... Dam... PLZ, get treatment...

Thanks & all the best to all you guys...E-Bust, Greg, Black...all you dudes ! We all get that heatastic feeling with the Heat. Do wish this blog was more compelling...but guess we'll make it better together !

Do really wish somebody with 1/4 of Zo's fighting spirit would show up in the middle some day. I STILL MISS WATCHING THAT DUDE PLAY !

RP, Unless joe followed Barry Jackson or George Richards around during his week off, there is no chance this blog will be more compelling.

Lol good to see I'm not the only who thinks this blog needs some serious work!

Did anyone thing about Miami trying to get Demarcus for Joel Anthony? Sacramento may throw in one bad contract for someone like James Jones but Demarcus rep has made himself pretty cheap to get.

We lose to Chicago at home, a team that just lost to Charlotte at there joint 2 days ago???!!! Yeah Yeah Yeah I know anything can happen on any given night in the NBA, but something is wrong with this team, Spoelstra isn't meshing this team very well, this is absolutely unacceptable the way this team is playing right now. Bottom line Haslem shouldn't be even playing, let alone starting!!! He just doesn't have it anymore. Mike Miller needs more burn, he ALWAYS brings something to the table, whether if its a hustle rebound in traffic or a clutch 3 when we always need it, the guy is a gamer even though he looks 70 years old out there. Those are two options in my head as I leave the game tonight, I have seen it all as a season ticket holder for 13 years and its time for some serious changes in the rotation. I'm just plain mad right now. Spoelstra needs to make adjustments ASAP before he loses this team. Bottom line!

I've been upset in the past about loses like this. The up and down play has been frustrating to watch. Spo has made it work the last 2 years, so this year is not as bad to watch. I know this team will be ready come playoff time. This team will rebound better. This team will play defense on a consistent level. This team will make the right adjustment. The players will check each other. Spo and the coaches will check them. Pat Riley will start making his presence felt. The Heat will REPEAT!

Whatta a friggin bunch of stupid basketball ! LeBron not 100% and no one really steps up. There's so much dead weight on this roster...too many finesse players This upcoming road trip could be a disaster. One glaring, ongoing issue is they really only play one style. A game plan with effective ball movement and decent outside shooting ...not to mention some bangers inside...gives the Heat huge problems. Guys like Bosh, Chalmers, UD, & Miller are playing like crap and need to wake the hell up. Maybe bench their asses vs Wizards and put somebody on the floor who wants some floor burns. But ...in the end...this who they are.

well, first game of this set and we're 0-1... on our home floor... ok, we move forward.. give them credit, they have an identity and they work hard at what they do well... defense and rebounding... they came in here and played to their strength and we didn't bring our A game... we must get better at rebounding and getting stops down the stretch... this is fixable... but we must take this as a example to what will help us win more games then we lose...

we move forward...

this upcoming road trip will be a challenge... those teams out west are playing a brand of basketball that could be seen as physical or slightly dirty but the ref's are letting things go so let's be prepared to out work these teams to get wins...

i really didn't get the feeling that we were dialed in last night... and they were just out working us on the glass...

i still say we could use some help on the glass and trying to maybe bring in a free agent like K-Mart or trading for a forward who could help on the glass would make sense... my opinion.. but hey... let's just get this win on sunday and move on to the next game...

watching all things Heat... i would like a tweek, but everybody sees my trades as being crazy... so i'll just say, let's move forward...007...

There is a reason why Kmart is STILL a free agent. About time to get off his jock don't you think black?

well, what plan do you have??? bky...

i guess you just see joel getting in there and finally grabbing the ball instead of just hitting his hands and going to the other team... or maybe playing harrellson more?? go head bky, the tables all yours...

you know the one thing about smart motherfuckers... they sound like crazy motherfuckers, to dumb motherfuckers...

Ahhh the real Black comes out, childish but cute. Want to settle this? I have got no problem whatsoever meeting up with you you moron. I live in Weston, I can meet you anywhere anytime, you name it I'm there. Bottom line you have no clue WHAT YOUR talking about! Your STUPID TRADE IDEAS and your fascination with the washed up KMART is absolutely ridiculous. You bring nothing to the table to this forum, all you ever say is "i'm just saying" "all things heat" "007" "i see a tweak coming" and you say your a business owner, there is no way your a business owner with the stuff you write, the way your grammar is, I saw someone a few days ago call you out and ask if you were a positive influence to society. I'm not the only one who thinks your mentally insane!I have been a season ticket holder for 13 years and I have seen it all, from what I gather on your blogging here is you go to a game every once in a while and repeat the same stuff all the time "we move forward" blah blah blah Your solution is to sign Kmart or Pietrus or whoever is out there ON THE STREET, name someone who was signed off the COUCH and made an immediate contribution??? I would love to hear this. Get a clue you idiot! I'M JUST SAYING..........Like I said I live in Weston, I will be at the Athletic Club at 6pm today, and 2 pm tomorrow, stop on by I would love to meet you.

i'm starting to feel like you feel some kind of way tough guy... i guess you can't express yourself through talking... do we now need security on the herald... dam, smh... write what you think would help team win... i would hate to have to send some one to come see you, i'm just sayin... let's go Heat....007....

just got home from church and read this mess... bky, if you can't come up with good info, just read mine... don't make me call on my marlon wyans, don't be a menace, face, to get at you...

and that bit about you would love to meet me, just sounds a little scary, i'm just saying...

just watch and listen...

watching all things heat... title run 2013... 007...
