LeBron James (wrist) declined comment to reporters after Wednesday's win in order to let Kyrie Irving have the spotlight following his 55-point game.
"I'm going to kindly decline to talk to you guys," James said after the game. "This is his night." James sat out Wednesday's game due to a sore wrist, so we'll have to await word on the extent of his injury. He'll have some time to recuperate since the Cavs don't play until Saturday, but J.R. Smith would be the biggest fantasy beneficiary (outside of Kyrie Irving) if James sits again. Jan 29 - 10:00 AM

LeBron James (wrist) is considered doubtful to play against the Kings on Friday.

It's weird day to see LeBron James and Kevin Durant out on he same night. James has been extremely durable before this season, but he's had knee and back issues before this injury. The Cavs are on a back-to-back this weekend, so James should be considered questionable for Saturday in Minnesota. Expect to see more of J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert, Mike Miller and Shawn Marion with Smith as the only reliable option.

LeBron James (wrist) will not play vs. the Trail Blazers on Wednesday.

He took a hard fall during Tuesday's game and was a game-time decision vs. Portland, but ultimately wasn't able to suit up. His absence means more shots for Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love, and more playing time for J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert, Mike Miller and Shawn Marion. Consider LeBron questionable to return Friday vs. the Kings.

LeBron James (wrist) appears to be closer to doubtful to play against the Blazers on Wednesday.

There are multiple reports from the Blazers side of things that LeBron is unlikely, so we'll be looking for something from the Cavs soon. Again, nothing is official yet, but fantasy owners can plan on LeBron sitting this one out. J.R. Smith benefits the most while we should get more Mike Miller and Matthew Dellavedova. Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving will also have more chances to score.

LeBron James (sore wrist) is a game-time decision on Wednesday due to a hard fall he took during Tuesday's game.

He continued playing after the injury on Tuesday and we're guessing he suits up vs. the visiting Trail Blazers, but coach David Blatt said the Cavaliers are "gauging [the injury] right up until game time." If he's forced to sit out, his minutes will be absorbed by a platoon including Mike Miller, Shawn Marion, Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith.
Jan 28 - 5:32 PM

LeBron James tweaked his wrist on Tuesday vs. the Pistons, but remained in the game to the tune of 32 points, seven assists, six boards and one steal in 36 minutes to lead the Cavaliers to their seventh straight win.

He landed on his wrist awkwardly and immediately grasped at it in pain, but he said after the game that it was simply a "stinger" so he shouldn't be in danger of missing any time. The Cavaliers are much more aggressive when James is on the floor and his return from knee and back soreness earlier this month has helped them pick up some serious steam in the Eastern Conference. Expect him to keep up his torrid pace on Wednesday vs. Portland.

LeBron James scored 34 points to lead five Cavaliers in double-digits on Sunday, adding two 3-pointers, seven rebounds and five assists in Cleveland's sixth straight victory.

The re-tooled Cavs are figuring out how to win as a team, which is an unwelcome development for the rest of the Eastern Conference. James shot 11-of-25 from the field and 10-of-13 at the FT line, and rounded out Sunday's gem with a steal and two blocks.
Jan 25 - 7:28 PM

LeBron James had no trouble with the Hornets on Friday during a 129-90 win, scoring 25 points with six rebounds, nine assists, four steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

The Cavs were up 35 points at half and the Hornets just couldn't' stop them whatsoever. After all the daytime sports talk shows were freaking out, the Cavs are on a five-game winning streak and have three consecutive games with a double-digit margin of victory. LeBron looks like he's back.
Jan 23 - 11:17 PM

LeBron James and Kyrie Irving played through a flu bug on Wednesday as the Cavaliers won their fourth straight game in a blowout over the Jazz.

James had 26 points, seven rebounds, nine assists, four steals and seven turnovers, and Irving added 18 points, four assists, five steals and two 3-pointers. Kevin Love also chipped in with a double-double of 19 points and 13 rebounds, as the Cavs appear to finally be figuring things out.
Jan 21 - 10:42 PM

LeBron James (illness) participated in shootaround and will play against the Jazz on Wednesday.

He did miss practice on Tuesday, but his owners should not have any concerns about activating him into all lineups. James has averaged 31.8 points per game since returning from knee and back problems, and he has a favorable match tonight against the Jazz.
Jan 21 - 11:07 AM

LeBron James (flu-like symptoms) did not practice on Tuesday.

The Cavs are waiting to see how LeBron feels after Wednesday morning's shootaround before giving an official update on his status. We'll be calling him questionable for now, and if he is forced to sit, expect Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving to be the primary beneficiaries. J.R. Smith could draw another start, and he would also see an uptick in value with James unavailable.
Jan 20 - 2:30 PM

LeBron James said that he's feeling the best he's felt all season.

I've felt better in the last three games than I did the whole season, the whole 30-plus games that I appeared in," he said. LeBron clearly needed the time off, and now the Cavs are looking to turn around their season. Cleveland faces Chicago on MLK day.

LeBron James flirted with a quadruple-double including turnovers in the Cavs' road win over the Clippers on Friday, scoring 32 points on 11-of-23 shooting (3-of-8 3PTs, 7-of-12 FTs) with 11 rebounds, seven assists and nine turnovers.

The middle of the season should be where James excels the most, as the Cavs are in a very real push to turn things around and rest is better suited for later in the season. He's the No. 8 and 16 player when on the floor in 8- and 9-cat leagues, respectively.

LeBron James looked as healthy as ever against the Lakers during a 109-102 win on Thursday, scoring 36 points with five rebounds, five assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

A little rest can work wonders. James shot the ball well yet again. He is going back to his bread and butter from last season, driving to the rim and finishing. Last season, he had one of the most ridiculous at-the-rim years ever. On top of shooting 80 percent at the rim, those shots accounted for 39.9 percent of his shot total. That’s why he was the No. 1 guy for fantasy in field goal percentage with his 56.7 percent at a 17.6 shot-per-game clip. On the other hand, before his return this week, he was only shooting 67.2 percent at the rim and those shots account for 33.7 percent. Based on the past two games, he looks like he's back. The key will be if he can stay healthy.

LeBron James (knee, back) returned from an eight-game absence on Tuesday with a team-high 33 points, hitting 11-of-18 FGs and 8-of-13 FTs with three 3-pointers, seven rebounds, five assists and one steal in 37 minutes.

This was the longest stretch of DNPs in LeBron's career, which is amazing considering he's logged 41,081 minutes during 1,029 games in the NBA (including playoffs). He quickly scraped off the rust and shouldn't be in danger of more DNPs, though he'll have some awkward explaining to do after pushing aside Cavs coach David Blatt during a mid-game spat with the referees. As if the Cavs didn't have enough drama already.
