MACAU (AP) -- The United States players are eager to hit someone else, andLeBron James is ready to take a hit.
James will be back in the lineup Thursday when the Americans face Turkey in an exhibition game, and said he won't be worried about the mildly sprained right ankle that kept him out of action last week.
So if James has a lane to the basket, he's going strong, just as he always does.
"Oh, I'm ready,'' James said before practice Wednesday. "I'm ready. I'm ready. We're going to see tomorrow night I guess.''
James probably could have played last week, but realizing there was still plenty of time before the start of the Olympics on Aug. 10, the U.S. coaching staff opted to rest him to avoid further swelling.
