LeBron James Still Receiving Treatment On Leg, Will Play In Game 2

by June 08, 2014

LeBron James was forced out of Game 1 of the Finals with severe leg cramping, but he won’t be missing any more time. From the Boston Globe:

James has been undergoing treatment for cramps and dehydration over the past two days and vows to be ready Sunday night. Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said he will determine James’s minutes depending on the game circumstances, but both James and Dwyane Wade commented Saturday that perhaps a deeper bench would help alleviate fatigue.


Five Miami players logged 30 or more minutes in the Game 1 sauna, while Toney Douglas, Udonis Haslem, and James Jones did not play.
