LeBron James says he is improving though still dealing with neck and elbow soreness after two hard falls earlier this week.
James reiterated Thursday he will play when Miami visits Detroit on Friday night. James got a stinger in his right elbow after a first-quarter tumble against Phoenix on Tuesday, then had a headache after colliding with Grant Hill in the fourth quarter of that game.
Heat coach Erik Spoelstra says James has passed ''all the checks with our training staff.''
Spoelstra says center Joel Anthony is expected to play Friday. Anthony was held out Tuesday because of a sprained left ankle. And guard Mike Miller will not accompany Miami on its three-game trip to Detroit, Oklahoma City and Indiana while he continues to recover from a sprained left ankle.

LeBron James and the Miami Heat show their support for Trayvon Martin, the 17-year old who was brutally shot by volunteer neighborhood captain, George Zimmerman.

LeBron James looked like a real tough guy last night in the Heat's win over the Suns. Sort of.

He supposedly was shaken up, but stayed in the game after some well rehearsed theatrics (such as laying prone on the floor.) Earlier in the game, he took a hard foul and...

MIAMI - When LeBron James was growing up and Grant Hill played at Duke, James wasn't a fan.
"No one liked Duke," James said.
But after Hill entered the NBA in 1994 and joined the Detroit Pistons, it became much cooler in his Akron, Ohio, neighborhood to dig him. And James went all out.
"I had his shoes when I was younger...
