LeBron James scored 25 points with 13 rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes during a 95-90 win over the Hornets on Friday.
He killed the Hornets in two games last year and had another terrific night here. There is still no word of the Cavs resting LeBron, so we fully expect him to play tomorrow night at home against the Nets. Nov 27 - 10:54 PM

LeBron James led the Cavs with 24 points during Wednesday's road loss, adding one 3-pointer, six rebounds and eight assists without any defensive stats.

LBJ passed Reggie Miller for 18th on the all-time scoring list tonight, just another in a growing list of impressive accomplishments. Kevin Love added 21 & 13 tonight, while J.R. Smith and Mo Williams each pitched in 15 points, but it wasn't enough to extend the Cavs' three-game win streak.

LeBron James expressed his displeasure regarding forced comparisons during a recent interview.

"I think what we get caught up in, in our league too much is trying to compare greats to greats instead of just accepting and acknowledging and saying, 'Wow, these are just great players,'" James said. "When it comes to our sport we're so eager to say, 'Who is better, Oscar or [Michael] Jordan?' or, 'Jordan or LeBron or Kobe [Bryant] or these guys?' Instead of just accepting greatness." James has got a point, and we're not going to force any comparisons here. He's putting up first-round value through the month of November.
Nov 25 - 9:44 AM

LeBron James scored 15 points with six rebounds, 13 assists and one steal in 35 minutes against the Magic on Monday.

He was more of a facilitator today and has seen his scoring drop in each of his last four games. LeBron has made at least 50 percent from the field in all of those games, so it's a matter of decreased usage and not efficiency. He's rolling right now.

LeBron James flirted with a triple-double during a 109-97 win over the Hawks on Saturday, scoring 19 points with 11 rebounds, eight assists, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

Thabo Sefolosha is one of The LeBron Stoppers, but the former MVP still managed a solid line to go with his second-lowest scoring game of the season. The Cavs have not started to manage James' minutes, but the they are now sitting pretty with a 10-3 record and that may change soon.
Nov 21 - 10:30 PM

LeBron James scored 27 points with nine rebounds, six assists and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes during a 115-100 win over the Bucks on Thursday.

He made 9-of-13 from the field and 8-of-9 from the line for a very efficient night. LeBron is flat-out rolling as a scorer in his last five, averaging 31.2 points, 7.4 boards, 5.6 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.2 treys. Considering the Cavs are 9-3 and LeBron's minutes will likely be managed later, selling him at a top-five value makes some sense. Although, that might be tough because LeBron only has second-round value on the year.
Nov 20 - 12:13 AM

LeBron James scored 30 points during a 104-99 loss to the Pistons on Tuesday, adding six rebounds, three assists, four 3-pointers and four turnovers.

That's four consecutive 30-point games for LeBron. In that span, he's averaged 32.3 points, 7.0 boards, 5.5 assists, 1.3 steals, 1.0 blocks, 2.5 treys and 4.8 turnovers on 53.4 percent from the field and 64.1 percent from the line. James is absolutely feasting at the rim during this stretch, making 30-of-40 from that range. He might be stringing together quite a few 30-point games when he's scoring like this.
Nov 18 - 12:14 AM

LeBron James scored 37 points during a double-overtime 108-105 loss to the Bucks on Saturday, adding 12 rebounds, five assists, one steal, three blocks, five 3-pointers and seven turnovers in 45 minutes.

That's season highs in points, field goal attempts, rebounds, blocks, 3-pointers, turnovers and minutes. James and the Cavs are off until Tuesday, so the time off should help him. On the season, he's averaging 27.0 points, 6.8 boards, 6.4 assists, 2.0 steals, 0.7 blocks, 1.1 treys and 3.3 turnovers.
Nov 15 - 12:13 AM

LeBron James scored 31 points during a 90-84 win at Madison Square Garden on Friday, adding three rebounds, six assists, two steals and one block.

He's working on tweaking his jumper and there may have been a subtle difference in his free throw routine tonight. He made just 61.0 percent from the line this season before tonight and was able to knock down seven of his 10 attempts during this win. LeBron gets his second back-to-back of the season on Saturday and his first since the first two nights of the season.
Nov 14 - 12:11 AM

LeBron James, who was a little iffy coming into Tuesday's game with a thigh injury, hit 11-of-19 shots and a 3-pointer for 31 points, seven rebounds, eight assists and two steals in 38 minutes of Tuesday's win.

He's probably going to be day-to-day with nagging injuries for a bit, but when he plays, he's still one of the best. He didn't block a shot, missed four free throws and committed five turnovers tonight, but he made up for it elsewhere.
Nov 10 - 10:25 PM

LeBron James (thigh) and J.R. Smith (knee) are starting as expected on Tuesday vs. the Jazz.

No surprises here, as both players are simply a little banged up at the moment. We'll have an update after the game.
Nov 10 - 7:11 PM

LeBron James (thigh) said he'll be ready to play against the Jazz on Tuesday.

James told reporters that he's feeling good and will be ready to play against a tough Jazz defense. We'll keep an eye on his status following shootaround, but fantasy owners should feel safe enough to slot him back into their lineups for Tuesday night.
Nov 10 - 11:15 AM

LeBron James' left thigh was hit again during the third quarter on Sunday, but he "hopes" to play vs. the Jazz on Tuesday.

He said he feels "very sore" and will receive around-the-clock treatment. With any luck his status will be determined on Monday, and we're considering him questionable for now. LBJ scored 29 points on Sunday and coach David Blatt praised his willingness to play through injuries, so there's some cause for optimism.
Nov 8 - 8:11 PM

LeBron James scored 29 points on 10-of-23 shooting (9-of-14 from the stripe) during Sunday's win over the Pacers, adding six boards, four assists and two turnovers through 35 minutes of work.

James has really helped his fantasy value this season by cutting down on the turnovers (2.7), and with averages of 23.7 points, 6.7 rebounds, 6.8 assists and 2.5 steals per game on 50.0 percent shooting from the field, he’s currently churning out first-round value in both 8-cat and 9-cat leagues. The scoring should go up as we get deeper into the season, but with the potential for him to take some days off as the year comes to a close (during the fantasy playoffs), we’d recommend putting the perennial MVP-candidate on the trade block in head-to-head leagues.
Nov 8 - 6:09 PM

LeBron James (thigh) said that he will play in Sunday's game vs. the Pacers.

James was never really expected to miss today's game, so go ahead and make sure you have the triple-double threat active for a favorable matchup with the Pacers.
