Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James' sprained ankle could keep him out of the regular-season opener on October 17 against the Boston Celtics. While confirming that veteran sharpshooter J.R Smith will return to the starting line up to take James' place, Lue said the Cavs will be extra careful in handling injuries. "But it's pretty sore today so we'll just see what happens", Lue said in reference to the possibility of James' playing in their 2017-2018 National Basketball Association season.

After being sidelined for much of training camp with a sprained left ankle, Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James made his preseason debut Tuesday night against the Chicago Bulls. Though Cavs coach Tyronn Lue has yet to provide an official update on James' injury, several media outlets believe the team might rest its franchise star.

Lue also noted James received treatment all day Wednesday, "so I'm not sure if we should be concerned (about his availability against the Celtics) or not". James played a team-high 30 minutes in the 108-94 defeat, accounting for 17 points on 8-for-13 shooting from the field, five rebounds three assists and eight turnovers. So, obviously tonight and tomorrow morning it's going to be a telltale sign of how I came out tonight. "It's just one game, but I think he'll be OK".

The 32-year-old reiterated that he wasn't fully himself when asked about the condition of the injury.

James said following Cleveland's 108-94 loss to Chicago at Quicken Loans Arena, according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin: "Well, me personally, tonight I was off".

Penn State Preparing for Texas A&M to Pursue James Franklin
It's too early to make a judgment either way, but perhaps Penn State might be worrying over nothing - for now. On the hot seat only a little over a year ago, Franklin is now the toast of college football.


But the importance of that game, at least for the players who know they'll be on the final roster, pales in comparison to the regular-season opener against the Boston Celtics on October 17. "I told you no".

James did not speak to reporters following Wednesday's practice. "It wasn't the most positive conversation, but we talked about it and we'll get through it together".

"We're going to work on it", he added. We scrimmaged a lot today, and we put it in early. We have to keep working at it.

James, who has never missed a season opener in his 14-season National Basketball Association career, sat out almost two weeks for training camp after spraining his left ankle during the second day of practice.

CLEVELAND (AP) - LeBron James won't play again this preseason, and there's a chance he'll miss Cleveland's hyped opener with Boston.
