LeBron James’ Knee Scare Won’t Stop Him From Playing

Posted on

Just one day after receiving treatment on his left knee, LeBron James helped his team beat Minnesota Timberwolves, and is anxious to start against Orlando Magic and continue the Miami’s winning streak. James landed awkwardly on his knee while attempting to catch a pass in Sunday’s win against the New York Knicks. He hyperextended his left leg and then grabbed his knee, which was a moment of scare for the Heats. Everyone thought that this might end with a complicated knee injury.

James said at the time that he “finished the game strong, but things are always a little worse the next day”. He didn’t undergo an MRI scan after the game, and luckily, his knee checked OK to play.

“It looked as though he strained the ligaments around his kneecap by the way he was rubbing the front of his knee after the injury. Glad to see that he will play tonight.”, said , Manhatthan Orthopedic Care’s physician Dr. Armin Tehrany

The last time James missed a game due to injury was Jan. 5, 2012 due to a turned ankle.
