LeBron James leave Heat-Cavaliers game with leg injury
It’s unclear if he’ll return.
LeBron James had to leave his own homecoming game against the Miami Heat after tweaking his foot following a loose ball scramble into the crowd. He stayed in the game for one play, but eventually asked to call a timeout and immediately ran over to the bench to be checked out by the Cavaliers’ trainer. He went back to the locker room.
It’s unclear exactly what James injured or if he’ll return to the game, though it looked like it was his left knee that was being checked out on the sidelines. He was chasing down an errant Kevin Love outlet pass that sailed into the crowd. As he jumped over seats, he landed awkwardly on his feet.
James was starring after a nervous start, scoring 21 points on 10 shots while adding eight assists. He was warmly received by Heat fans on his way out.
