LeBron shut down for remainder of preseason, iffy for Tuesday's opener

LeBron shut down for remainder of preseason, iffy for Tuesday's opener”

While they looked a bit out of sync, disjointed and showed now real chemistry in unveiling their new starting five of James, Wade, Rose, Jaw Crowder and Love during a 108-94 loss to the Chicago Bulls last night, the preseason is not an accurate precursor of how the regular season will go. Because of this, the four-time NBA MVP (Most Valuable Player) has been ruled out of his team's final preseason game against the Orlando Magic happening tomorrow, October 13.

As a result, James, who hurt the ankle in Dwyane Wade's first practice with the Cavs on September 27, was held out of practice and won't play in Cleveland's final preseason game Friday in Orlando.

"Not sure. Got treatment all day today, so I'm not sure if we should be concerned or not". "But it's pretty sore today, so we'll just see what happens".

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. The Cleveland Cavaliers will face arch rivals Boston Celtics on October 17 in a game that is being touted as a grudge match between LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. "His passing, timing. That's just part of the game", Lue said, via ESPN.com. "But it is what it is".

J.R. Smith said "absolutely" he is frustrated that he lost his place in the Cavaliers' starting lineup to Dwyane Wade, though neither he nor Tristan Thompson aim to make trouble now that they're both coming off the bench.

Also Wednesday, the Cavs waived 7-foot-3 center Edy Tavares and signed guard Isaac Hamilton.

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 walked it off during a timeout and managed to play 30 minutes, scoring 17 points with five rebounds, three assists, and eight turnovers. He went 5-9 from the field, 1-2 from the three-point line, and 2-3 from the free throw line. The team can keep 17, but two must be on two-way contracts with the G League.
