James to miss final preseason game

James to miss final preseason game

The Cavaliers will start Iman Shumpert in LeBron James' place tonight against the Orlando Magic after J.R. Smith asked coach Tyronn Lue if he could remain with the second unit.

On Wednesday, the soreness in his ankle returned, and the Cavs made the decision to shut James down the rest of the preseason.

He aggravated his ankle Tuesday night against Chicago as the Cavs unveiled a new starting lineup featuring James, Derrick Rose, Dwyane Wade, Jae Crowder and Kevin Love.

LeBron James' preseason will consist of only one game.

The 2017-18 National Basketball Association season kicks off on Tuesday, Oct. 17, with opening night matches pitting defending champions Golden State Warriors against Houston Rockets, besides an Eastern Conference finals rematch between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics.

The four-time MVP has appeared in fewer than 70 games once (2014-15) over the course of his career-he played in 62 of 66 games during the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season-and has missed a grand total of 14 games combined over the past two campaigns largely for maintenance. (He) got treatment all day today (Wednesday), so I'm not sure if we should be concerned or not. Per Vardon, Lue did not have a definitive answer with regards to James' status for that game.

"Was pretty much bracing myself for it", said Smith, who compared what happened with Wade to a situation he experienced with the New York Knicks. James had 17 points but also registered eight turnovers. "I just wanted to try and test my foot, test my ankle to see how I would come out tonight". However, apparently, he and his team will just have to deal with it for now until he is finally okay.

James originally injured his ankle during Cleveland's practice on September 27.

"We're going to work on it", he added. There's a lot of hype behind the game but like I told him, we got to be smart about it. They felt more comfortable with it today.

LeBron James will miss the Cavaliers preseason finale with an ankle injury.

One can only wonder, but while some may want to dismiss them as too old, too slow and playing in an inferior conference, it would be wise to never understate them. He is pictured on October 10, 2017 in Cleveland, Ohio.
