The long-awaited Training Camp is finally upon us. After months of relaxing and enjoying the summer, players are now joining their respective teams to get ready for the 2017-18 NBA season. For most players, the offseason was a time of getting better, working on their craft, and keeping fit in the gym. Some took it as a vacation, enjoying life with their friends and family. A lot of players found new homes through trades and signings in the offseason, and some have yet to find a place of comfort as they are still free agents.

Either way, it was quite a hectic offseason in the National Basketball Association this year, with many superstars deciding to change paths in their careers.

Paul George and Carmelo Anthony ended up on the Oklahoma City Thunder, joining Russ. Kyrie Irving decided to walk away from the Cleveland Cavaliers and found home in Boston, with Isaiah Thomas going to The Land. Chris Paul joined James Harden in Houston, and Dwyane Wade decided to join his brother LeBron in Northeast Ohio. And that was just to name a few.

For LeBron James, he spent the offseason training hard in the gym and on the court. Although he spent some time with his family and watched a few of his son's basketball games, the gym kept calling him.

Going into this season, James looks as strong and excited as ever. Coach Lue noticed this change in LBJ also, saying he seems happier right now and “he seems younger.” But one thing seems to have gotten in the King’s way at the start of training camp, something that might set him back a little.

Listed as day-to-day

LeBron James rolled his left ankle during practice on Wednesday. He then did not practice with the team on Thursday as he did not want to extend the damage to the injury; instead, he went and got x-rays to check the severity of the injury. But good news for Cavs fans came back as the x-rays were negative, and a few days of rest and recovery is all that should be needed for LeBron to get back to practice as he is listed as day-to-day.

The Cleveland Cavaliers expect LeBron James to take a few days off practice then return and be back to things as usual.

LeBron speaks up about injury

LeBron James recently posted on his Instagram story, a photo of his left foot inside an ice bucket with the caption “Late night ice bucket for the wheel. Day To Day #SFG”. James is obviously not too fussed about this injury, and with the “Strive For Greatness” caption, he shows he’s still in the same mindset heading into this season.

King James seems to be more ready for this upcoming season than usual. The addition of Isaiah Thomas, Dwyane Wade, Derrick Rose, Jae Crowder and a few others have LeBron excited to play basketball. He believes the squad has improved and has another great chance at winning a championship this season. James also expressed his excitement to bring players a place they’ve never been before, players that have not seen the NBA Finals before. While also expressing his excitement for Derrick Rose to prove himself, as he has been criticised heavily in recent years after injuries slowed his career down.
