James remains questionable for Tuesday night's game against the Boston Celtics and former teammate Kyrie Irving because of a sprained left ankle that has bothered him for three weeks.

James, who injured his ankle in practice on Sept. 27 and played in just one exhibition game, participated in the team's morning shootaround but did not speak to reporters afterward.
