LeBron James is already feeling the pressure on many nights of the 2012 NBA Playoffs due to his teammates failing to also step up alongside him. Many moments, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh have been woefully silent in the NBA postseason. Now LeBron might have to make due because Wade is hurting with a back injury after a collision in the Thunder frontcourt.

Further details are not known at this point, but it's clear that LeBron faces more pressure now than ever before. The Heat are hoping to close this out to put the Thunder on the ropes. But if Kevin Durant and company can't take advantage now, then they might as well close the books.
