Smith will start for James on Friday with Jose Calderon moving into the lineup, Lue said.James said after the pre-season loss to Chicago that the game was a test to see how his ankle was recovering from the injury.“I’m pushing through it right now,” James said. “I just wanted to try and test my foot, test my ankle to see how I would come out.“I definitely wanted to test it knowing that at least if I tested it tonight I have a week until the regular season started if I don’t play in the game on Friday.”James averaged 26.4 points and career highs of 8.6 rebounds and 8.7 assists last season as the Cavaliers reached the NBA Finals, losing to Golden State. It was the seventh consecutive trip to the finals and eighth overall for James.ADVERTISEMENT The Cavaliers had hoped to have James play alongside newcomers Derrick Wade, Dwyane Wade and Jae Crowder with Kevin Love shifted from forward to center in what figures to be a formidable lineup should they be able to work cohesively.“It’s a challenge when you’ve got a new team and you want to incorporate stuff,” Lue said.“Do we wish we had a little more time with him in the pre-season? Yes.
