LeBron James is questionable for Tuesday's opener against the Celtics


Tuesday night's NBA season opener between the Celtics and Cavaliers has had plenty of buzz because of obvious reasons but the game could lose appeal if two star players are out.
The Cavaliers will be without Isaiah Thomas, who has a hip injury and won't be back until December or January and the team recently announced that LeBron James could miss the game because of a left ankle injury.
ESPN NBA reporter Dave McMenamin (@mcten) tweeted: 
"LeBron James (L ankle) participated in shootaround and will be a game-time decision, according to the Cavs." 
The first game of the season already has plenty of storylines but a LeBron James injury is nothing to be excited about. Another main story will be how Cavs fans will treat their former star Kyrie Irving, who recently said he's happy to play in a "real, live sports city" like Boston.
I don't see LeBron James missing this game but anything can happen. Looselines Sportsbook favors the Cavaliers by 3.5 points (-110) and the total has been set at 212.5, so wait until closer to game-time for word on James' status before placing your bets.
