DENVER (AP) - LeBron James is back in the Miami Heat's starting lineup against the Denver Nuggets after missing the previous game because of a groin injury.
James, who turned 29 on Monday, injured his groin Friday night during the Heat's overtime loss at Sacramento. He sat out the following game, a 108-107 win Saturday at Portland.
James entered Monday night's game against Denver having scored in double figures in 524 consecutive games, the fifth-longest streak in NBA history.
