LeBron James will not participate in the Cleveland Cavaliers’ Wine & Gold scrimmage scheduled for Monday at Quicken Loans Arena, coach Tyronn Lue told reporters.
James rolled his left ankle during a practice session Wednesday evening. While the injury isn’t considered serious, Lue said James is continuing to receive treatment and rest.
The Cavs open the preseason Tuesday night at The Q against the Atlanta Hawks *(7 p.m., NBA TV). Lue did not say if James will play.
The scrimmage is scheduled to tip off at 6 p.m. EST and is open to the public. It will also be streamed at Cavs.com/live.
James, 32, has appeared in seven straight Finals, winning three championships, including one with the Cavs in 2016.
