James Jones available for Game 2

Miami Heat swingman James Jones said he is available for Game 2 of the NBA Finals after missing the series-opener because of a migraine.

Jones said he began experiencing the symptoms after Tuesday’s morning shootaround. His absence was part of the reason coach Erik Spoelstra played basically a six-man rotation against the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 1.

On Wednesday, James said he was ready to go.

“I went back to the hotel and they gave me some medicine,” Jones said. “And it started to kick in late in the afternoon, but I didn’t really get better until after the game started.”

Jones said he has experienced migraines in the past, but it was the first one he had “in a while.”

“Unfortunately, it just happened on the wrong day,” Jones said.
