LeBron James said he wasn't embarrassed by Wednesday's 29-point loss to the Hawks.
After Cavs head coach David Blatt characterized the loss as embarrassing in his post-game press conference, LeBron didn't seem to be on the same page as his coach. "Nah, I'm embarrassed losing the Finals," James said when asked if the loss was embarrassing. While James and the Cavs still have some work to do, he's averaging 31.0 points, 4.3 rebounds, 6.3 assists, 1.5 steals, 1.3 blocks, and 1.5 three-pointers over his last four games so his fantasy owners can't be too upset.

LeBron James hit 8-of-16 shots for 21 points, three rebounds, two assists and two steals in Wednesday's blowout 127-98 loss to the Hawks, the Cavs' most lopsided loss of the season.

It's hard to explain how this one happened, as the Hawks were playing without starting point guard Jeff Teague, but Shelvin Mack got hot in the second quarter and the Cavs never threatened again. James played OK, but his owners were hoping for more than this in most instances. Due to the lopsided score, LeBron and most other starters were on the bench for the entire fourth quarter.
Dec 17 - 10:05 PM

LeBron James scored 27 points on 11-of-19 shooting (including two threes) with seven rebounds, 13 assists, one steal and three blocks in Monday's 97-88 win over the Hornets.

James is starting to get it going and the biggest issue with his fantasy value is his 49 percent shooting this year. For comparison's sake he shot 56.6 percent over the last two seasons and it's a reflection of the struggles the Cavs are having getting to know one another. Look for that to improve, but a bad fantasy playoff schedule and new competition at the top of fantasy leagues have taken the crown off his head.

LeBron James said on Sunday that his knee is doing OK, and said that it responded well to the flight back home.

This is excellent news for his owners and while it is possible it could flare up again, it looks like the coast is clear for now. After sitting out against Oklahoma City on Thursday, James responded in a big way on Friday scoring a season-high 41 points on 17-of-24 shooting. He should be all set for Monday's favorable matchup against the Hornets, and owners can deploy him like they normally would.
Dec 14 - 1:06 PM

LeBron James matched his season high with 41 points against the Pelicans on Friday with five rebounds, five assists, one block and two 3-pointers on 17-of-24 from the field.

Surprisingly, this was LeBron's first game over 65 percent from the field on the season. On Dec. 12 of last season, he had already had five of those games, so hopefully this is a sign of things to come. Additionally, his knee injury looked just fine tonight and added that resting is not in his nature. James will look to keep it going against the Hornets on Monday.
Dec 13 - 1:54 AM

LeBron James (knee) will play against the Pelicans on Friday night.

He went through warmups and everything seems like he's ready to go. James sat out on Thursday and there was talk of the Cavs taking it easy on him, so he should be relatively close to 100 percent. Get him in your lineup.
Dec 12 - 6:51 PM

LeBron James (knee) is going through warmups on Friday.

It sounds like he's going to play on Friday, but nothing is certain just yet. James didn't go through warmups on Thursday, so he has a better chance than yesterday. He's a little closer to probable now, but we should have another update before the 8:00 EST tip.
Dec 12 - 6:24 PM

LeBron James (knee) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Pelicans.

The Cavs don't seem overly concerned about James' knee, and maintain that the decision to have him sit on Thursday vs. OKC was merely a precaution, so we'll be monitoring his status closely. If James can’t go Friday, expect to see a lot of Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love. Matthew Dellavedova also had a nice outing on Thursday, and he'll have some short-term value as long as LeBron is sidelined. Stay tuned.
Dec 12 - 10:19 AM

LeBron James will not play Thursday vs. OKC due to soreness in the back of his left knee.

Wow, the Cavs are listing LeBron as day-to-day, and he's being considered questionable for Friday's game vs. the Pelicans. It's worth noting that the Cavs don't believe this to be serious, and coach David Blatt said the decision to withhold James tonight was simply because they are "being cautious." Expect Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love to handle most of the offensive responsibilities, with Shawn Marion and Dion Waiters getting some increased opportunity as well. Matthew Dellavedova will slide into the starting lineup, with Marion starting at SF, but he doesn't look like a great option, as he's a fifth-option on offense.

LeBron James (knee soreness) was not a participant during shootaround, and will be a game-time decision for Thursday's game vs. OKC.

LeBron's knee soreness seems very minor, so we'd expect him to play today. However, owners will want to check back closer to tip-off for an official update. If he’s unable to go Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving would pick up most of the offensive workload, with Shawn Marion and Dion Waiters seeing some increased opportunity. Stay tuned.

The Cavaliers are not worried about LeBron James' knee soreness, but will take a conservative approach, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.

LeBron will still be a game-time decision for Thursday's game against the Thunder, but it's good news to hear that the team isn't concerned about long-term effects here. We'll update Bron's status as soon as more information is available, but fantasy owners should expect to see a lot of Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love if James is unable to play Thursday.
Dec 11 - 1:27 PM

LeBron James (knee) is questionable for Thursday's game against Oklahoma City.

James is dealing with soreness in his left knee and looks to be headed towards a game-time decision for Thursday's showdown against Kevin Durant and the Thunder. If LeBron is unable to play, a combination of Shawn Marion, Dion Waiters, and Matthew Dellavedova would get extra run while Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love would see an uptick in fantasy value.

LeBron James blew up for 35 points in Tuesday's comeback win vs. Toronto, making 12-of-21 FGs and 9-of-9 FTs with two rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocks.

The Cavs have reeled off eight consecutive wins and LeBron is giving them whatever they need on a given night -- against the Raptors it was a heavy dose of scoring, marking his first game with at least 30 points since Nov. 15. He'll look to keep the momentum going in Oklahoma City on Thursday.
Dec 9 - 9:46 PM

LeBron James said that the Cavs can't afford tot ake plays off.

"We have a tendency right now to take plays off, including myself," James said. "That's something I can't do. As a team, we can't do. We've been playing so well, that if we cut down those things, there's no telling what type of games we can have as far as close to 48 minutes as possible." The Cavs have won six straight, so things are starting to get figured out in Cleveland.
Dec 8 - 12:26 PM

LeBron James handed out a season-high 13 assists in Friday's road win over the Raptors, adding 24 points, seven rebounds, three steals, two threes and a block in 42 minutes.

LeBron is still playing well below where he will likely be in a few weeks, hitting just 46.9 percent of his shots on the season. Keep an eye on his fantasy playoff schedule but the buy low window is still fairly open while he's posting just top 10-20 returns.
