James (flu-like symptoms) playing, Wade (ankle) not for Heat against Lakers
MIAMI (AP) ' LeBron James will play for the Miami Heat against the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday night, the decision coming hours after he was sent home from the team's shootaround practice to rest.
James has been dealing with flu-like symptoms for several days. He played through them on Tuesday, scoring 17 of his 33 points in the third quarter as Miami rallied from a 14-point deficit to beat San Antonio by 22.
The Heat will be without Dwyane Wade, who will miss his second straight game with a sprained right ankle. It's the fifth game Wade will miss because of injury this season.
