James returns to Heat practice

LeBron James returned to practice with the Miami Heat on Saturday, reporting no problems with his ailing right hamstring.

The NBA’s two-time reigning MVP was sidelined by a hamstring cramp during an exhibition game against CSKA Moscow on Tuesday and had not played or practiced since.

James said he went through every aspect of the Heat workout Saturday without issues.

Miami’s next preseason game is Monday at home against Charlotte. James and the Heat say the decision on whether he plays in that game will hinge largely on how the hamstring feels Sunday.
