James played in just one of the Cavs' five preseason games after spraining his left ankle on the second day of camp.
"He went through that stuff today and he went and got cardio in the weight room", Lue said.
But Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue refused to place any added significance on Tuesday's challenge against the Celtics.
The Cavaliers will kick off their season Tuesday against the Celtics and Irving, who requested a trade from Cleveland in July. "It's just something he's been trying to work on", Lue said.

The Los Angeles Lakers opted not to sign Julius Randle to an extension before the deadline, meaning that he will be an unrestricted free agent in the offseason, according to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne. "I'm not turning on data roaming, I'm not buying no apps, I still got Pandora with commercials". "We were talking about it, he's never missed, since he was 8 years old and he started playing, he's never missed a first game. He tried to come back and play and he might have tweaked it on that spin move, and that could have set him back a little bit".
The Cavs lost 11 straight regular-season games without James, and have a lowly 4-23 record without him since he returned to the team in 2014.
With a revamped roster and more offensive options than ever, Lue believes the Cavs are more equipped to compete when James is on the bench.
"I think we'll be a lot better off". We're deeper. A lot of versatile players.
Manchester United emerging from 'a dark tunnel,' says Park Ji-sung
Gary Neville believes that David De Gea is the "standout" world-class player in the Manchester United team at the moment. We were the better side in all the games after that and did not win, except at Leicester.
That didn't sit well with many Cleveland residents.
He's been a prototypical three-and-D wing for the Cleveland Cavaliers who excels as a catch-and-shoot threat and has a knock for hitting the tough and contested three-point shots.
Irving's three-pointer in the waning moments of game seven in 2016 lifted Cleveland to the city's first championship since 1964.
Lue wasn't sure what else Irving should expect from the fired-up, sellout crowd.
Falcons squander 17-point advantage against Dolphins
Dolphins center Mike Pouncey went out in the second quarter with a possible concussion and didn't return. Ryan is just one interception away from his total for all of last season, when he was the league's MVP.
"He's got to see how it feels", Lue told the AP. "Whatever decision they make, that's the right one. So whatever they decide to do, I embrace whatever they do".
