Miami Heat forward LeBron James returned to practice Saturday at the San Antonio Spurs’ practice facility.
James was forced out of Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday due to cramps stemming from dehydration. San Antonio’s AT&T center heated up during the game when the air conditioning stopped working.
James will be in Sunday’s lineup for Game 2. The air conditioning in the arena has since been repaired.
“I’m doing well, doing a lot better,” James said. “The soreness is starting to get out. I’m feeling better than I did yesterday and with another day, I should feel much better tomorrow.”
The Heat held a light practice. James was expected to get some cardio work on a stationary bike and by running. He will also continue to get treatment as he recovers.
“He’s feeling better, moving around,” coach Erik Spoelstra said. “Yesterday was all about rest and hydration and building his body back up. Thankfully we had that extra day.”
James exited the game with 3:59 left and had to be helped off the court. Miami was trailing by two points but ended up losing 110-95.
