LAS VEGAS (http://sports.espn.go.com/oly/olybb/news/story?id=3504163) -- U.S. coach Mike Krzyzewski says injured forward LeBron James is a "95 percent no-go" for Friday's exhibition against Canada.

James, who has a mild right ankle sprain, was held out of a scrimmage for the second straight day on Thursday, although he did participate in five-on-none drills.

"He hasn't had contact," Krzyzewski said. "We're better off giving him a few days."

James injured his ankle when he landed on Kevin Durant's foot during a Tuesday scrimmage between Team USA and a select squad of young NBA players. On Thursday, James said the ankle had improved every day since.

"When it happened, I could barely walk on it, and it progressed throughout the night," James said. "It's feeling a lot better. If I had to [play], I would."

Lebron's ego is starting to piss me off, I used ti like him but can't stand him anymore. Who is he/what has he done to be saying he can treat Kobe and J Kidd like rookies if they don't perform? this dude seem to be too big on himself.
