LeBron James says he will play through twisted ankle
LeBron James acknowledged after Game 3 that he twisted his ankle, but he says it won’t stop him from playing in Game 4.
James could be seen limping after twisting his ankle following a layup attempt.

James played through it during the game, though ESPN’s Brian Windhorst noted that James tried to avoid landing on his right leg when possible.
After the game, James was asked about his ankle and acknowledged he twisted it badly.
“Yeah I twisted it pretty good, but I’ll be in the lineup on Friday,” James said.
Windhorst was looking for James’ potential limp after the game, but the Cleveland Cavaliers star was too smart to show it.
Even with the sprained ankle, James had a triple-double — 33 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists. Kevin Durant nailed a crazy shot to beat them 110-102 and put Golden State up 3-0 in the series.
