The 29-year-old told reporters: "Me being out of the game, it hurts us more than it's going to hurt the other team. I've got to keep my composure. I get frustrated at times, but I understand how much I mean to this team.
"I understand there's going to be contact, and if it's the right call, then I'm OK with it. My foul didn't even get checked. It was never checked, and it was at a crucial point of the game.
"I don't cry for fouls. I know it's going to be a big headline tomorrow, 'LeBron is crying for fouls.' It's not that at all. If the game is played and [officiated] how it's supposed to be [officiated], then I'm okay with it."
The Heat play their third playoff game against the Bobcats later today.
