James to start Heat's clash with Pacers
Miami, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - LeBron James will be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's showdown between the Miami Heat and the Indiana Pacers from AmericanAirlines Arena.
The four-time league MVP had been considered a game-time decision entering the contest after he hurt his left ankle in the Heat's 117-94 victory over Utah on Monday.
James scored 17 points when the Eastern Conference's top two teams last squared off, a 90-84 Pacers' win in Indianapolis on Dec. 10.
Forward Michael Beasley (left hamstring) and center Greg Oden will be Miami's two inactive players for Wednesday's clash.
