That gasping sound you here, is Miami Heat fans holding their collective breath. During the third quarter of the Heat’s 99-93 victory over the New York Knicks, James went up for an alley-oop dunk and came down awkwardly after being hit by a defender, he managed to finish the game after some initial discomfort, he’s worried but doesn’t expect to miss any time. “I was concerned,” James said. “I’m still concerned a little bit.” “I was able to finish the game strong but things are always a little worse the next day,” James said. “We’ve got to fly to Minnesota, but I believe I’ll be in the lineup [Monday], though.” Knee injuries are nothing to take lightly, but I expect the Heat to be extra cautious with Lebron because if he is anything less than his usually amazing self, Miami won’t be winning anything this year.
