The air quality at the Oakland Raiders’ facility was so poor from deadly wildfires raging in the North Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area that the team adjusted its practice schedule Wednesday.

As many as 16 fires have been burning in Sonoma and Napa counties, about 50 miles north of Oakland, since Sunday night, and there have been 21 reported deaths as of Wednesday night, with more than 3,500 homes and businesses destroyed and more than 122,000 acres burned. They are the third-deadliest and most destructive fires in California history. The Raiders joined with the Bay Area’s other professional sports teams — the 49ers, Giants, A’s, Warriors, Sharks and Earthquakes — to donate $450,000 to support the relief efforts.

LeBron James tested his injured left ankle during a portion of practice Sunday, but it’s still not known if he’ll play in Cleveland’s season opener.

James has been slowed since spraining his ankle in practice on Sept. 27. The three-time NBA champion sat out the Cavaliers’ first three exhibition games before making his debut last week against Chicago. He played 30 minutes but may have aggravated his ankle while making a spin move in the loss.
