Mario Chalmers (shoulder) said he expects to play in Friday's Game 2.

Chalmers suffered the injury during the third quarter of Game 1 and did not return. Despite planning to play, Chalmers said he'll want to see how the shoulder feels when he wakes up tomorrow before making any final decisions. Norris Cole replaced Chalmers on Wednesday and would continue to man the point along with LeBron James if Chalmers is sidelined Friday.

The Rockets are "moving quickly" to trade Jeremy Lin and clear enough cap space to make an offer to Chris Bosh, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Lin has already been linked to the 76ers and Bucks, and Rockets GM Daryl Morey has simply been waiting for the first shoe to drop before trading Lin away. To entice a team to accept Lin's $15 million salary this year, Houston will likely include draft picks and/or young players. Bosh will reportedly get a max offer worth $96 million over four years, and if he accepts it the Rockets are expected to also match Chandler Parsons' hefty $45 million offer sheet from the Mavericks. Things will progress quickly now that LeBron has made his decision.

LeBron James will return to Cleveland as a member of the Cavaliers, he announced on Friday.

James will spurn the Heat to re-sign with the hometown franchise he left in heartbreaking fashion in 2010. In an exclusive interview with SI.com titled "I'm Coming Home," James says, "My relationship with Northeast Ohio is bigger than basketball. I didn’t realize that four years ago. I do now." His momentous decision should have an immediate chain reaction. Carmelo Anthony and other free agents are now freed to make their own decisions, and Chris Bosh may accept a max offer from the Rockets. The Cavs also have a rumored trade offer to the Wolves for Kevin Love, which would undoubtedly involve Andrew Wiggins. While the Cavs instantly become a championship contender with LeBron on board, the Heat are left patching together their roster as they enter the post-LeBron era.

Dwyane Wade is expected to be with LeBron James on his flight from Las Vegas to Miami on Thursday night.

Things are definitely getting interesting. Wade and LeBron spent a lot of time in Vegas together, so Miami may have a better chance at keeping LeBron than many thought. The flight to Miami isn't really worth reading into too much since it's much closer to Brazil than Vegas.

LeBron James is traveling back to Miami on Thursday night and will then travel to Brazil.

The Heat and Cavs are expecting him to make his choice before he goes to Brazil, according to Yahoo! Sports. He is expected to travel to Brazil on Saturday, so he'll have a little over a day to make his decision stateside. Of course, he could make his decision while in Brazil and do something associated with the World Cup -- ESPN does have a fancy set at the Copacabana beach after all. Regardless, it doesn't sound like we'll be hearing his decision on Thursday night.

The Suns will re-sign forward P.J. Tucker to a three-year, $16.5 million deal.

Considering some of the other deals being shelled out lately, this is a very good one for the Suns. Tucker outplayed his contract last year which paid him less than $1 million, but he turned out to be one of the better perimeter defenders in the NBA while adding a nice long-range game on offense. He'll be looking at a similar role next season unless rookie T.J. Warren usurps his playing time.

Portland Trail Blazers sign G Steve Blake.

Blake's deal will reportedly be under Portland's bi-annual exception for $4.2 million over two years and the second year is a player option. Blake averaged 6.9 points, 1.4 3-pointers, and 5.6 assists per game with the Lakers and Warriors last season and will serve as a backup point guard who can also play shooting guard for the Blazers. This move doesn't necessarily rule out Mo Williams' return to Rip City, but it would seem unlikely at this point.

Pau Gasol met with Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak at the team's practice facility on Wednesday night.

The Lakers look like they're going to miss out on the big free agents, so they'll have tons of money to bring back Gasol. The Bulls could also pry Gasol from the Lakers and may be closer to competing for a title since they come out of the Eastern Conference. The Thunder and Spurs are also in the mix, but would only be able to offer him a small deal. Gasol's fantasy value would likely be maximized in Los Angeles.

James Johnson has reportedly agreed in principle to a two-year contract with the Toronto Raptors.

This will be Johnson's second stint with the Raptors after a mini-breakout season with the Grizzlies in 2013-14. Johnson averaged 8.5 points, 0.5 3-pointers, 4.2 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.2 steals, and 1.6 blocks in 22 minutes per game after the All-Star break with the Grizzlies and he could end up being a valuable fantasy asset in standard leagues if he's able to carve out more minutes in Toronto.

LeBron James has all the information he needs from teams and will no longer take meetings, according to David Aldridge of NBA.com.

The report has been confirmed by USA Today's Sam Amick, Marc Spears of Yahoo!, and ESPN's Chris Broussard, so these reports are almost factual. LeBron met with Heat president Pat Riley on Wednesday and didn't make a decision, so that will go down as one of the most important free agent meetings in NBA history. It's certainly interesting that he won't meet with the Cavs (unless a secret meeting went down last weekend) because David Blatt is new to being an NBA coach and David Griffin is their new general manager. Hopefully, he'll have a decision in the next couple days.

Greivis Vasquez has reached an agreement to re-sign with the Raptors for $13 million over two years.

He was a restricted free agent, but there was never really a doubt he'd be coming back, especially after the Raptors traded away Steve Novak. Vasquez gets a hefty raise here from just $2.1 million last year, so the Raptors may have went a bit over market value for a backup point guard. They also dropped $48 million over four years for their starter Kyle Lowry. The Raptors also have brought in Lou Williams in another trade this summer. Wanna guess what their favorite position is this offseason?

David Aldridge is reporting that Chris Bosh doesn't have a contingency plan with the Rockets in case LeBron James leaves the Heat, which is contrary to most other reports out there.

Aldridge says he's been told "strongly' that Bosh has no deal with the Rockets, which would mean the signing of LeBron by any team would still result in mystery theater across the rest of the league. There's still a decent chance Bosh could end up in Houston, with LeBron going 'home' to Cleveland, but we'll obviously have to wait and see what becomes of 'The Decision, Part II.'
