LeBron aggravates ankle injury; opener vs. Celtics in doubt


This is a team that has played in three straight NBA Finals, has this generation's best player in LeBron James, a three-time NBA champion and Finals MVP in Dwyane Wade, a former NBA MVP in Derrick Rose, one the league's leading scorers past year in Isaiah Thomas, one of the top five stretch forwards in Kevin Love and one of it's deadliest shooters in J.R. Smith and they are considered by many an after thought.

James, who first tweaked his ankle during a September 27 practice, sat out of Wednesday's practice after he re-aggravated his sprained left ankle.

Superstar forward James tweaked the injury he sustained in a training camp during the Cavs' 108-94 defeat to the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday. "It's just one game, but I think he'll be OK".

Lue said J.R. Smith, who lost his starting shooting guard spot to Wade, will start for James in Orlando.

The NBA preseason is less about actually winning games, and more about working on team chemistry, seeing what a team is able to produce on the court when together, and if there are any holes in the team that need fixing before the regular season starts.

In his first pre-season game coming off an ankle injury, James scored 17 points, grabbed five rebounds and dished out three assists in 30 minutes.

"Got treatment all day today, so I'm not sure if we should be concerned or not", Lue added. "So we kind of scrapped some of the stuff we've been doing and we're going to just go in a different direction offensively with that first unit", Lue said. "But I mean, it is what it is", Lue told reporters after Cleveland's scrimmage at the Quicken Loans Arena. So, obviously tonight and tomorrow morning it's going to be a telltale sign of how I came out tonight.

So, how and why is a LBJ-led team being so causally overlooked, when they have won the East seven straight years, and will likely come out of it to face Golden State in a likely Round 4 matchup in the NBA Finals.

James, entering the season as the odds-on favourite to win his fifth MVP award, did not speak to reporters following Wednesday's practice session. We scrimmaged a lot today, and we put it in early. "It's something new to us". "That would be a tough one for him personally to miss".
