Via press release, the Heat, who did not practice Friday, said James had been re-evaluated in Miami, and his status for Sunday afternoon's meeting with the Chicago Bulls at AmericanAirlines Arena would be a game-time decision.
James was hurt late in Miami's 103-81 win against the Thunder. He left the game with 5:50 remaining in the fourth quarter after being hit in the face by defender Serge Ibaka's hand on a driving basket. The Heat star suffered a bloody nose, and held a towel to his face while being escorted to the locker room. He did not return.
James scored 33 points and hit 15 of 22 shots before exiting. He posted this picture following the game:
The win gave Miami a 5-1 road trip and moved the Heat within 1 1/2 games of Eastern Conference-leading Indiana.
