Cleveland Cavaliers unsure of LeBron James' status for regular season opener

Cleveland Cavaliers unsure of LeBron James' status for regular season opener Cleveland Cavaliers unsure of LeBron James' status for regular season opener

LeBron James' preseason will consist of only one game.

The four-time MVP has taken the court only once in the ongoing National Basketball Association preseason - on Tuesday evening when the Cavs fell 108-94 to the Chicago Bulls.

The four-time league MVP, who had been out with a sprained left ankle, limped several different times during the game and woke up with soreness Wednesday morning.

Cavaliers coach Tyron Lue has said that, because of James' injury, it remains unclear if he can participate in the team's opening game for the 2017-2018 National Basketball Association season, where they will be going against the Boston Celtics, which will feature former Cavaliers All-Star guard Kyrie Irving, who was traded to his new team only last month. But it's pretty sore today so we'll just see what happens.

James sustained the injury during a practice on September 27 when he stepped on the foot of rookie forward Cedi Osman.

"I think he'll be OK, though". James is undergoing treatment on his ankle, and that will likely remain the case in the days leading up to the opener. The Cavs will host former teammate Kyrie Irving and the Boston Celtics at 8 p.m. Tuesday. "But it is what it is".

According to Lue, J.R. Smith will start in place of James at small forward in the Cavs' preseason finale against the Orlando Magic on Friday. Shumpert, who was nursing a foot injury, has played a total of just 13 minutes over two preseason games.

Smith told cleveland.com this week that he was "absolutely" frustrated he had lost his starting spot to Wade, but was embracing his role with the second unit.

James lacked the explosiveness and often coasted through plays resulting to a subpar line of 17 points, five rebounds, three assists, and, worse, eight turnovers.

The Cavs' training camp roster remains at 20 players. He went undrafted in 2017 and played three games for the Indiana Pacers' summer league team, averaging 5.3 points.
