Days off and rest were mostly associated with Dwyane Wade throughout the regular season.

With the Miami Heat having nearly a week between playoff games, another name has reached the top of the list.

LeBron James.

James suffered a right thigh bruise in Monday's series-clinching victory against the Charlotte Bobcats.

Although not serious as Wade's health issues, the break comes at the perfect time for James.

"It's definitely sore," James said. "I'm fortunate enough that we were able to close out (Monday) and we get a little rest. I think as far as me physically, I feel pretty good."

The Heat are off until at least Sunday as they await the winner of the Brooklyn Nets-Toronto Raptors series, which is tied at 2. James was injured in third quarter after colliding with Bobcats center Bismack Biyombo's knee while driving to the basket.
