MIAMI - LeBron James was not with the Miami Heat for their final regular-season shootaround on Wednesday morning. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said the league's reigning MVP was tending to a personal matter.
James was not expected to play Wednesday against the Orlando Magic. He has spent part of the past couple weeks dealing with a right hamstring strain.
The Heat have home-court advantage for as long as they remain in this season's NBA playoffs. Miami will host Milwaukee in Game 1 of an Eastern Conference first-round series this weekend, with the schedule to be announced late Wednesday or early Thursday.
James is averaging 26.8 points this season, fourth-best in the NBA.
Spoelstra did not announce a lineup for the regular-season finale, indicating many players would be game-time decisions.
