Cleveland Cavaliers' Iman Shumpert out 7-10 days with sprained foot

LeBron James to miss opportunity to play against Atlanta Hawks in preseason

The seven-year veteran has been sharing the backcourt in the second unit with Dwyane Wade through the first week of Cavs training camp, trying to carve out a consistent role on a Cleveland team that added guards Wade, Derrick Rose, Isaiah Thomas and Jose Calderon in the offseason.

When Thompson heard about the news he said that he felt it was a great idea.

Jae Crowder on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) said he feels that Cavaliers' head coach Ty Lue is already preparing them for their matchup with the Golden State Warriors.

Center Tristan Thompson, who started 78 games for the Cavs last season, will now come off the bench, according to multiple reports.

When fully healed, Cleveland will boast perhaps the deepest roster in the National Basketball Association, with the likes of Derrick Rose, Tristan Thompson, J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert and Kyle Korver coming off the pine. Additional examination and imaging this morning at Cleveland Clinic Sports Health by Cavaliers team physicians Dr. James Rosneck and Dr. Richard Parker confirmed a left foot sprain. Lue said the three-time champion will not play in tonight's exhibition opener against Atlanta. The Cavaliers star said that he wants to play more aggressively this season, so one hopes this early injury won't dissuade him from that more aggressive play. Cleveland open the regular season on October 17 against Irving and the Celtics.
