The superstar is doubtful for regular season opener against the Boston Celtics due to a left ankle injury.
Per Cleveland.com, LeBron James woke up Wednesday with soreness in his sprained left ankle as feared, and is effectively shut down for the rest of the preseason.
Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said James would not practice Thursday or play Friday in the preseason finale Friday in Orlando, and even questioned if James would play in the season opener Oct. 17 against Boston.
"He was experiencing soreness so he won't practice tomorrow, he won't play on Friday, either," Lue said. "So, um, (LeBron is) pretty mad, pretty pissed off. But I mean, it is what it is."
