Heat’s James to play, Wade out vs. Lakers
Miami Heat forward LeBron James will battle through flu-like symptoms and play in Thursday’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers.
The two-time MVP was originally sent home from practice earlier this morning.
James has reportedly been sick throughout the week, but still finished with 33 points in Tuesday’s victory over the San Antonio Spurs.
The Heat will also be without the services of Dwyane Wade, who remains day-to-day with an ankle injury.
