Spoelstra: James ‘feels better’
Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said after Sunday’s shootaround that forward LeBron James is improving.
James left Game 1 of the NBA Finals against the San Antonio Spurs due to cramps after the air conditioning went out inside the AT&T Center in San Antonio.
Spoelstra did not say if James still has any lingering effects. James does not speak to the media after shootarounds on game days.
“He feels better, we’ll find out tonight,” Spoelstra said. “We’ll try to manage (any issues that come up) and go from there.”
Spoelstra added that how James feels in the shootaround does not affect how he will feel during the game.
James left Thursday’s game late in the fourth quarter. The Spurs said Saturday that the air conditioning system was fixed.
Spoelstra said he was not planning any minutes limitations on James. Any adjustments will be made during the game.
The Spurs beat the Heat by 15 points in the series opener.
