James twisted his ankle during Tuesday's 108-94 loss to the Chicago Bulls at the Quicken Loans Arena following an off-balance spin move to the basket with little over five minutes left in the first quarter.

According to a report from Joe Vardon of cleveland.com, Iman Shumpert will start in place of LeBron James, who has been dealing with a nagging ankle injury that he suffered prior to the start of the preseason.

James didn't practice Wednesday, a day after he made his exhibition debut after being slowed by a sprained left ankle sustained September 27.

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

Hamilton (6-4, 194) played at UCLA for three years and averaged 13.7 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.1 assists in 104 games, all starts. "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 it's pretty sore today so we'll just see what happens", Lue said in reference to the possibility of James' playing in their 2017-2018 National Basketball Association season.

While Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward ended up in Boston, the archrival Celtics, still will have to contend with Cleveland, a unsafe Atlanta Hawks squad and an under-the-radar team in the Miami Heat.

"No. I told you it wasn't 100 percent the other day", James said.

LeBron James will miss the Cavaliers preseason finale with an ankle injury.

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. Lue said he's had to alter some plans already.

"It's a challenge when you've got a new team and you want to incorporate stuff, but you don't want to go too fast, you don't want to go too slow".

"Not sure (if James will play against Boston)". You want to see what works. Following the game, he hinted that he might need more time off.

There's a chance James could miss the regular-season opener, something that has never happened in his 14 previous seasons, but a lot could change in the next few days.
