If Al Jefferson isn’t effective, the Charlotte Bobcats have no chance to beat the Miami Heat. If Jefferson ceases to be Big Al, if plantar fasciitis limits what he can do when he has the ball as well as when Miami has it, Charlotte’s season ends quietly.

With 2 minutes, 10 seconds left in the quarter, Jefferson ran without the ball and felt a pop in his left foot. His plantar fasciitis recurred.

“I feel a lot better now but when it first happened there was a lot of pain,” he says. “As the game went on it eased up on me. I just got to suck it up. I’ll be fine for the rest of the playoffs. I don’t know all the details but I know I’ll be OK. Just something you got to play through.”
