LeBron James still listed as questionable for home opener

LeBron James still listed as questionable for home opener

"I don't ever cheat my teammates or cheat the fans or talk about free agency all year long because I'm not going to give energy to something I can handle in the summertime when I should be focused on what I'm doing on a day-to-day basis to help this franchise compete for a championship".

Smith's declaration of James' status was far more definitive than Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue's assessment of his superstar's chances of suiting up after James missed four of the Cavs' five preseason games with the injury.

"Any time I'm able to be a free agent or my contract is ending, I'll approach that when the summer comes", said James, who returned to Cleveland in 2014 and led the Cavs to their only league title in 2016. And we know that they're really, really good.

Lue told Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com said James' availability will depend on how he feels on game day.

Lue did not guarantee James will play on Tuesday.

It says rules should be tightened to restrict self employment to "truly independent entrepreneurs". The 140-page OECD report also says there's a need to improve productivity.

James has never missed an opener in his National Basketball Association career, and teammate J.R. Smith doesn't expect him to miss this one. "I'm preparing for him to play". The team will show a tribute video as a "thank you" for Irving's six years with the team, according to Cleveland.com.

Hayward added, "It's a fun first game to start the year". "You got to see how it feels". "Whatever decision they make, that's the right one". And right away we face a tough test (in the Cavaliers). In fact, Lue said the Cavaliers played well despite the absence of James in training camp and most of the preseason. "But this is, I've said this before, like, the first week, the first 10 days, the first few weeks, we have such great and unique challenges that it's gonna be really good for this team regardless". It's going to be a fight, especially opening night.

"I'm over it. I've moved on", Crowder said. "Boston has been a team that continues to get better". Hopefully he dribbles so much he gets exhausted. But the Celtics, who advanced to the Eastern Conference finals last season, are returning only four players - and just one starter - from past year. "Offensively, like I said before, he has no offensive weaknesses". Al (Horford) is a pick-and-pop guy. I think Jaylen (Brown) has obviously gotten better, so, I think they're the same.

The team has still been focusing on their own makeup considering the drastic turnover from their past two rosters, as Ty Lue said his staff is still training based on what they want to do, 'working on ourselves'.
