LeBron in lineup despite sore left knee


Posted Mar 5, 2013 12:41 AM

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A sore left knee has joined the long list of things that haven't been able to stop LeBron James this season.

After testing it out in the pregame warmup, James was in the lineup for the Miami Heat's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night, one day after tweaking his knee in a victory over the New York Knicks.

James came up gimpy when he landed awkwardly on his knee in the third quarter on Sunday. But he still managed to close the game out in ferocious fashion, scoring 12 of his 29 points in the final quarter to rally the Heat to their 14th straight victory.

James is averaging 27.1 points, 8.2 rebounds and 7.3 assists this season.
