Thursday night, LeBron James and the Miami Heat sent a stern message to the Oklahoma City Thunder, as well as the rest of the NBA, as they dominated Kevin Durant and crew, but that win didn’t come at a small price as James had to leave the game after he suffered a gruesome bloody nose late.
Following the win, James did not speak to the media as he was receiving medical attention which included concussion tests and an x-ray, but it’s now being reported that he will be able to go when the Heat take the court on Sunday against the Chicago Bulls.
LeBron sore & swollen today after getting cut up last night. The expectation is he’ll be able to play Sunday against Bulls.

This is great news as the Heat seem to be putting everything together at exactly the right time as the second half of the campaign has just gotten underway, with the team seeking their third consecutive NBA Championship.
