Spokeswoman Jackie Mayo with Cleveland Hopkins airport says the crew of the Heat's plane reported a wing "flap issue" early Thursday as the aircraft was on its approach. An alert was issued at the airport and two fire trucks were sent out to the runway, which Mayo says is standard procedure.
She says the plane landed safely around 2:30 a.m.
The Cavaliers host the Heat Thursday night in Cleveland, five months after James angered Cleveland fans by announcing his departure for Miami. Extra security measures have been implemented for the game to prevent trouble and to protect James.
