LeBron James hit just 5-of-14 shots for 16 points, five rebounds, five assists and two steals in 34 minutes of Thursday's ugly 113-94 loss against the Clippers.
The Clips are one of the better defensive teams in the league and the Cavs had nothing for them on a day when LeBron was named the Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year. Kevin Love hit 7-of-11 shots and two 3-pointers, but had just 16 points and four rebounds in the blowout. The Cavs got blowout by the Bucks on Tuesday, and they'll try to quickly put both games out of their memory. They'll look to get back on track against the Bulls on Friday night. Dec 1 - 10:52 PM

LeBron James scored 22 points with four rebounds, four assists and three triples in 33 minutes in a 118-101 loss to the Bucks on Tuesday.

LeBron turned the ball over a season-high seven times and shot 8-of-16 from the field, and he was thoroughly outplayed by Giannis Antetokounmpo. However, the Cavs were coming off a four-game winning streak and LeBron had two triple-doubles in that span, so his owners should forgive him for this "quiet" line. The Cavs have a back-to-back set coming up against the Clippers on Thursday and the Bulls on Friday, so his owners will want to confirm his status for both.

LeBron James posted the 45th triple-double of his career during Sunday's 112-108 win over the 76ers with 26 points, 10 rebounds and 13 assists over 42 minutes.

James also added one 3-pointer, one steal and five turnovers to his stat line, and he's been coasting with top-20 value on the year behind averages of 23.6 points, 8.4 boards, 9.7 assists, 1.1 steals, 0.4 swats, 1.6 triples and 3.6 turnovers per game on 49.8 percent shooting. The Cavs are currently dominating the Eastern Conference with a 13-2 record, which could mean random rest days down the stretch for King James.

LeBron James posted his second triple-double of the season on Wednesday, scoring 31 points with 10 rebounds, 13 assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes against the Blazers.

That's triple-double No. 44 for LeBron's career. James is sitting at No. 3 in the NBA for assists per game at 9.3 and he's also averaging 8.5 boards to go with his 23.8 points. While Russell Westbrook is putting up triple-doubles all the time, LeBron isn't far behind him on the averages. The Cavs will welcome the NBA's worst team, the Mavs, to Cleveland on Friday.

LeBron James missed practice Tuesday to give testimony in former players union executive director Billy Hunter's wrongful termination suit.

James will be available to play Wednesday when the Cavs host the Portland Trail Blazers. A few days shy of his 32nd birthday, LeBron is still putting up phenomenal fantasy numbers. James is averaging a career-high 9.0 assists and 8.4 rebounds this season

LeBron James (rest) returned from a one-game absence in Friday's 104-81 win over the Pistons, scoring 21 points on 9-of-14 shooting with three rebounds, three assists, one block, one triple and two turnovers in 28 minutes.

This game was over by the third quarter, so James only played 28 minutes. Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue said he is happy with LeBron James playing around 37 minutes per game, but his owners can expect more maintenance days down the stretch. Keep this in mind if you own James in a head-to-head league. For what it's worth, the Cavs are off until Wednesday's game vs. the Blazers.
Nov 18 - 10:28 PM

Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue said he is happy with LeBron James' current average of 37 minutes per game.

James is currently sixth in the league in minutes per game, but Lue likes where the average is at right now. "We wanted to get him low, but he said he wanted to ramp him up early and then kind of tailor him down in January, February, [around] our All-Star break," Lue said. "So right now he said he wants to be between 36 and 38 minutes a night and then around the All-Star break start tailoring them down. So he's right where he wants to be right now." It's worth noting the part about tailoring down James' minutes as the season progresses, so fantasy owners might want to explore a sell-high trade if they can get an elite return.

LeBron James (rest) will not play Wednesday against the Pacers.

It's the first game out of the lineup for King James. If J.R. Smith (ankle) is also out, there will be plenty of minutes up for grabs for guys like Jordan McRae, Richard Jefferson and Iman Shumpert. Plus, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love should get a ton of shots and become very attractive DFS plays.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: This one will have some serious DFS implications on both sides. On the Cleveland side, both Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love stand to become the biggest beneficiaries. Love's usage spikes to 44.3% without LeBron and J.R. Smith, per RotoGrinders CourtIQ. Kyrie's usage jumps to 36.6%, so both players should be heavily involved Wednesday. On the Indiana side, Paul George gets a bump in value without having to face off with The King. Channing Frye and Iman Shumpert are also potential GPP punt plays.
Nov 16 - 4:08 PM

LeBron James double-doubled with 28 points and 14 assists in a 121-117 win over the Raptors on Tuesday.

The win improves the Cavs to 9-1 on the season. LeBron just missed his triple-double with nine rebounds, adding one steal, two treys and five turnovers while shooting 10-of-15 from the field. LBJ is averaging a career-high 9.6 assists per game and this was his third game of the season with 14 assists. The only thing his fantasy owners have to worry about is the potential for maintenance days down the stretch.
Nov 15 - 9:43 PM

LeBron James scored 19 points on 8-of-21 shooting Sunday, to go with eight boards, eight assists, two 3-pointers, one steal, one block and three turnovers in 39 minutes.

James is nearly averaging a triple-double through the first nine games of the year with 22.9 points, 8.9 boards, 9.1 assists, 1.1 steals, 0.6 blocks and 1.6 triples per game, which has him churning in top-15 value in standard 8-cat leagues. The Cavs currently sit atop the Eastern Conference with a record of 8-1, but LBJ owners will be hoping for a tightly contested race to the top of the East, because if they secure that No. 1 spot early the rest days could start piling up for the Finals MVP.
Nov 13 - 6:01 PM

LeBron James scored 27 points against the Wizards on Friday during a 105-94 win, adding 10 rebounds, five assists, two steals, two blocks, three 3-pointers and six turnovers.

He came into the night ranked second in the NBA in assists per game, but Russell Westbrook passed him tonight. James became the youngest player in NBA history to score 27,000 points in his career. He's kind of good at this basketball thing.
Nov 12 - 12:59 AM

LeBron James scored 25 points against the 76ers during a 102-101 win on Saturday, adding eight rebounds, 14 assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

His dunk in the first quarter moved him past Hakeem Olajuwon for No. 10 on the NBA's all-time scoring list. Besides the scoring, James' passing has been magnificent with 10.7 assists per game on the season. Next up on LeBron's list for scoring are Elvin Hayes at 343 points away and Moses Malone at 439 points away.

Coach Tyronn Lue believes LeBron James could average a triple-double "if he wanted to."

"I think he could if he wanted to," said coach Tyronn Lue before the Cavaliers' win over the Celtics on Thursday. James had 30 points, 12 assists and seven rebounds against Boston to bring his season averages to 22.4 points, 10.0 assists and 9.0 rebounds through the Cavs' 5-0 start. He started off the season with a triple-double on opening night (19 points, 11 rebounds, 14 assists). It was the first time James did that in his 14 seasons in the league and the first time any player did it on an opening night since Jason Kidd in 2006. LeBron has seen his scoring average dip a bit this season, but he is averaging career-highs in both rebounds and assists.

LeBron James hit 12-of-22 shots and a 3-pointer for a season-high 30 points, seven rebounds, a season-high 12 assists and a steal in Thursday's 128-122 win over the Celtics.

LeBron did what he wanted to tonight and had to come in the game late after the Celtics fought back from a 17-point deficit. There's been no talk of LeBron resting yet, but it's coming at some point. This was LeBron's best fantasy line of the young season. And if the Warriors beat the Thunder tonight, the Cavs will be league's lone undefeated team.
Nov 3 - 10:56 PM

LeBron James was highly efficient on Tuesday, hitting 6-of-12 shots and a 3-pointer for 19 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists, just missing a triple-double in a good win over the Rockets.

James missed four free throws and committed four turnovers, but is off to a pretty nice start this season. Hopefully his days of rest will be few and far between, but it feels like it's only a matter of time before we start having to deal with them.
