LeBron James blames himself for Cavaliers' preseason loss vs Bulls

LeBron James blames himself for Cavaliers' preseason loss vs Bulls”

According to Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue, James tweaked his previously injured ankle in the contest, bringing his preseason to an end and leaving his status for the Cavs' regular season opener against the Boston Celtics on Tuesday in question.

LeBron James finally made his preseason debut Tuesday, but the Cavaliers got some bad news about their star forward.

"He was experiencing soreness so he won't practice tomorrow, he won't play on Friday, either", Lue said.

"Of course his rhythm is going to be off".

As a precautionary measure, Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue has made a decision to give James the rest of this week off, despite the fact that the team has one preseason game remaining (at Orlando on Friday night). "But I'm not anxious about Bron". However, he did turn the ball over eight times in the game, with seven of those turnovers occurring in the first half. "I'm not too anxious about that". I could feel it. James woke up with pretty significant soreness that forced him out of practice Wednesday and will cause the Cavs to hold him out of practice Thursday and Friday's preseason finale.

"I'm pushing through it right now", James said.

The challenge was ultimately two-fold for James: get back conditioning and rhythm after being sidelined for almost two weeks, and acclimate to a handful of new teammates, including a completely overhauled starting lineup compared to what he played with en route to three trips to the NBA Finals in the last three years. So, obviously tonight and tomorrow morning it's going to be a telltale sign of how I came out tonight.

"I definitely wanted to test it knowing that at least if I tested it tonight I have a week until the regular season started if I don't play in the game on Friday".

Lue also said he was "not sure" if their forward would be ready to play October 17 during the Cavs' season opener.
