LeBron James, was injured late in the 4th quarter on a drive to the basket. He was able to get up and score a basket on a fast break and force a bad shot by Russell Westbrook in the following possessions.

ESPN reports that he suffered legs cramps down the stretch that kept him out the last 5 minutes of game 4 of the NBA Finals.

The minor injury is great news for the Miami Heat fans considering it looked worse than it actually was. The fact LeBron is going to be able to play in game 5 is great news for Miami, especially coming off of a game 4 win to put them up 3-1 in the series. The Miami Heat will look to take the series and the championship in game 5.
