With Dwyane Wade officially out for the Miami Heat this evening against the Los Angeles Lakers, Kobe Bryant and company may dodge a second bullet as ESPN's Brian Windhorst reported early Thursday morning that LeBron James was sent home from a team shoot around this morning with some type of illness. His playing status for this evening remains unknown.
Per Brain Windhorst on Twitter:
LeBron James sent home from shootaround with illness. Status for tonight vs. Lakers to be determined.— Brian Windhorst (@WindhorstESPN) January 19, 2012
With the Lake Show rolling into South Beach losers of six of their last seven matchups there, a night without LeBron or Wade would be a sight for sore eyes. James' status for the game should become available soon.
