As a result, James, who hurt the ankle in Dwyane Wade's first practice with the Cavs on September 27, was held out of practice and won't play in Cleveland's final preseason game Friday in Orlando.
On Wednesday, the soreness in his ankle returned, and the Cavs made the decision to shut James down the rest of the preseason.
LeBron James' preseason will consist of only one game.
Cavaliers coach Tyron Lue has said that, because of James' injury, it remains unclear if he can participate in the team's opening game for the 2017-2018 National Basketball Association season, where they will be going against the Boston Celtics, which will feature former Cavaliers All-Star guard Kyrie Irving, who was traded to his new team only last month.

James said following Cleveland's 108-94 loss to Chicago at Quicken Loans Arena, according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin: "Well, me personally, tonight I was off".
The four-time MVP has appeared in fewer than 70 games once (2014-15) over the course of his career-he played in 62 of 66 games during the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season-and has missed a grand total of 14 games combined over the past two campaigns largely for maintenance. "Got treatment all day today, so I'm not sure if we should be concerned or not". "But it's pretty sore today, so we'll just see what happens".
Lue said James is upset that his ankle is still an issue. James scored 17 points in the game, but also had eight turnovers and was, in his own words, "off." So, obviously tonight and tomorrow morning it's going to be a telltale sign of how I came out tonight. However, apparently, he and his team will just have to deal with it for now until he is finally okay.
James did not speak to reporters following Wednesday's practice. "We're going to continue to keep working on it and I think guys will get it down".
