LeBron James scored 24 points on 8-of-15 shooting (2-of-5 3PTs, 6-of-8 FTs) with five rebounds, nine assists, five steals and one block in Friday's loss to the Nets.
The Cavs played like a team that's starting to coast but most of their key guys got their numbers tonight. Kyrie Irving scored 26 points with three assists, one steal and two blocks, and Kevin Love scored 18 points with seven rebounds and two threes. J.R. Smith had a down night with eight points, five rebounds, two steals and two threes, and all of these guys play just seven games in three weeks starting next week. This has the potential to get ugly for owners, and owners have to hope the Bulls can close in from 2.5 games behind for the No. 2 slot in the East. Mar 28 - 12:12 AM

LeBron James is reportedly frustrated with Kevin Love's inability to fit in, according to sources.

It's worth noting that this article stems from a New York-based media outlet who may or may not be hoping that Love bolts the Cavaliers to join the Knicks after the season, but there have been rumblings of a discord between the two stars all season. Meanwhile, Love scored 22 points to go along with 10 rebounds in Wednesday's win over the Grizzlies so even if Love is one-and-done in Cleveland, he's still an important part of the Cavaliers' playoff hopes.

LeBron James has started to take on a more vocal role with the Cavs.

"I was frustrated with our play and the guys know how I felt about it and they responded," LeBron said. He's clearly become more comfortable in his new (old) surroundings, and the Cavs are rolling as a result. "I feel really good with my game, I feel really good with how I am on my body."

LeBron James was phenomenal on Sunday, scoring 28 points on 10-of-17 shooting (7-of-7 from the stripe), to go with 10 rebounds, six assists, five steals, one 3-pointer, one block and five turnovers through 39 minutes of action.

Turnovers continue to be an issue for LeBron, but when he's putting up lines like this, who really cares? Look for LeBron to keep his foot on the gas pedal when the Cavs take on the Grizzlies on Wednesday.
Mar 22 - 6:08 PM

LeBron James (illness) scored 29 points on 13-of-26 shooting (including two threes) with seven rebounds and five assists in the Cavs' 95-92 win over the Pacers on Friday.

James took his time coming out of the locker room at halftime and that's really the only issue he had against the Pacers. Kevin Love went for 11 and 13 with a block and one trey, J.R. Smith scored 11 points with one trey, three boards and two assists on a quiet night, and Kyrie Irving shot like he was the sick one with 13 points on 4-of-16 shooting in the win.

LeBron James (illness) is a go for Friday's game vs. the Pacers.

James is just dealing with a head cold, but he'll be fine. Go ahead and get him active.
Mar 20 - 6:49 PM

David Blatt said he thinks LeBron James (illness) will be able to play Friday vs. the Pacers, and the Cavs are listing him as a game-time decision.

James is dealing with a head cold and wasn't able to go through shootaround this morning, but it's encouraging that head coach Blatt feels he'll be able to give it a go. However, nothing is official just yet, so owners will need to check back for another update closer to tip-off. Stay tuned.
Mar 20 - 5:49 PM

LeBron James (illness) did not go through shootaround, and he is officially being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Pacers.

Owners will just have to hope James decides to give it a go tonight, and we'll be monitoring this situation closely. However, if he's forced to sit, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love will be asked to do the heavy lifting on offense, with guys like J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert, James Jones, and Shawn Marion all seeing some increased opportunity. Irving, Love, and Smith would be the guys to target in daily leagues. Stay tuned.

LeBron James hit just 5-of-13 shots and two 3-pointers for 16 points, three rebounds, seven assists and a steal in Wednesday's easy win over the Nets.

This was not one of Bron's better games, but at least he's playing instead of resting through a sore knee. Look for a bounce-back game on Friday against the Pacers.
Mar 18 - 10:51 PM

LeBron James (knee, wrist) will play vs. the Nets on Wednesday.

Cavs coach David Blatt is eager to improve his team's seeding, which lessens the likelihood of a DNP for LeBron, but we'll continue to monitor his status in the coming weeks -- he said after Tuesday's game, "Everything hurts, but I'm alright." The Nets are giving up 103.0 points over their past 10 games, the sixth most of any team, and LeBron should have a field day vs. their defense.
Mar 18 - 5:33 PM

Cavs coach David Blatt is eager to earn the No. 2 seed in the East, though LeBron James (knee, wrist) said that he's "never ... played for seeding" during his 12-year career.

"That's just not how I work," LeBron said. "I never play for seeding, I just play. I feel like we can win on anybody's floor." He entered Tuesday's game with a banged up knee and jammed his wrist during the Cavs' loss to Miami, saying afterward, "Everything hurts, but I'm alright." We're leaving him off the injury report for Wednesday's game vs. the Nets, and the risk of a DNP is lessened by Cleveland's light schedule down the stretch -- they don't play back-to-back games until April 12/13.
Mar 17 - 9:18 AM

LeBron James scored 26 points with two rebounds, four assists and four 3-pointers against the Heat on Monday.

He suffered a minor wrist injury and struggled with his shot. LeBron didn't get his first rebound until late in the fourth quarter and not having any defensive stats makes this a very weak line. He didn't seem to be bothered by a knee issue, so at least that's good. James will likely be rested at some point going forward and his fantasy owners will need to check back on all of his road games.
Mar 16 - 11:46 PM

LeBron James will play against the Heat on Monday.

He's not on the injury report and should be good to go. James is going to rest at some point this season, but he doesn't have any other road games in a back-to-back set in this week excluding tonight. Fantasy owners in weekly leagues can start him.
Mar 16 - 6:44 PM

LeBron James (knee) is expected to play on Monday against the Heat.

He reportedly doesn't have a knee injury and will be ready to go against his former team. There are other reports of LeBron being a go, as well. Although, this game is on the road in the second half of a back-to-back set, which has been a very popular situation to rest a player. We'll still add another update later today to make sure he's in the lineup.
Mar 16 - 2:35 PM

LeBron James (knee) is questionable to suit up against the Heat on Monday.

The juice in this matchup revolves around LeBron's participation, but he could be headed for a game-time decision. When asked if he would play on Monday, LeBron replied, "I hope so." He then added he hasn't had a moment like that in a while, and he's expected to receive treatment all day Monday in an effort to play. If he sits, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love (back) would do the heavy lifting with J.R. Smith also playing a larger role.
