---End of Update---

James limped off the court in the NBA season opener with an apparent ankle injury. The game is a rematch of last season's Eastern Conference Finals and his Miami Heat were holding to a double-digit lead.

After his departure the Heat actually went on a 12-2 run to open up a 96-73 lead at the end of the third quarter.

James had 24 points in 26 minutes on 9-of-14 shooting, including two of three from three-point range. He's also pulled down 10 rebounds.

James has returned to the court and appears ready to test his ankle at the start of the final quarter.
