Golden State Warriors backup big man Anderson Varejao insists he didn’t deliberately trip Portland Trail Blazers guard Gerald Henderson in Game 1 of their Western Conference semifinal playoff series. Yet after watching the replay, Varejao understands that it looked like he did it on purpose — which is what Henderson thought.

“When I looked at the play, I was like, ‘Oh, it looked like I was trying to do that,'” Varejao said. “How can I try to do something like that? I’m going down and my foot got stuck. That’s all.” Portland coach Terry Stotts on Monday called it a “dirty play.” On Tuesday, the NBA ruled it a flagrant foul 1 on Varejao.

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.
