CLEVELAND, Ohio — Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said LeBron James would not play Sunday against the Washington Wizards, leaving him with just two preseason contests to gain some court time before the regular season starts.
James sprained his left ankle Sept. 27 and hasn’t played in either of the Cavs’ two preseason games — both losses. Cleveland fell 106-102 Friday to the Pacers.
James returned to practice Thursday, but Lue said James’ ankle was still sore. He posted an elaborate video to Instagram prior to the Pacers game of him working out, rapping to Dr. Dre songs, and joking with Dwyane Wade. – CLICK HERE to read full story.
