LeBron James said the Cavaliers are still confident despite the likely loss of Kevin Love (shoulder) for the rest of the playoffs.
Cavaliers general manager David Griffin said it's "highly unlikely" that Love will be able to return during the playoffs, but James said he and his teammates are still confident. "We definitely have to pick our own games up," LBJ said. "You can't fill Kevin's shoes. He's special for a reason." James and Kyrie Irving will have to step up their games with Love out, while a combination of Tristan Thompson, Kendrick Perkins, and Timofey Mozgov will all get extra minutes as the Cavs attempt to fill the void.

LeBron James fell just two assists shy of a triple-double during Sunday's Game 4 win over the Celtics with 27 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists, three steals, one 3-pointer, one block and six turnovers through 46 minutes of action.

James shot 10-of-24 from the field and 6-of-10 from the stripe, and this game was more of a wrestling match than a basketball game. The Cavs closed out their series today with a sweep of the Celtics, which is the sixth time a LeBron-led team has swept a best-of-seven-series. The likely second-round matchup of Chicago vs. Cleveland is going to be a very exciting matchup.

LeBron James scored 31 points during a Game 3 103-95 win over the Celtics on Thursday, adding 11 rebounds, four assists, four steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 42 minutes.

He took over in the fourth quarter and the Cavs basically just handed him the keys to their offense. He played the entire fourth quarter with a usage rate of 34.6 while starting the ball movement on most of the possessions. In fact, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving have scored or assisted on every Cleveland field goal in the last two fourth quarters. The Cavs will look for the sweep on Sunday.

LeBron James went through an hour-long workout prior to Thursday's shootaround.

Why? "That's just the mode I'm in right now," James told media in advance of Thursday's Game 3 against the Celtics. James and his Cavaliers teammates have the opportunity to go up 3-0 on Thursday and the extra workout wasn't lost on his teammates. "He's a very focused guy," Tristan Thompson said. "He understands what it takes to win at this level and he leads by example for us."

LeBron James had a game-high 30 points with one 3-pointer, nine rebounds, seven assists and two blocks during a win vs. the Celtics on Tuesday, going 11-of-22 from the field and 7-of-8 at the FT line.

In the process, James passed Jerry West as the seventh-leading scorer in NBA playoffs history (4,458 career points). The six players ahead of him are Karl Malone, Tim Duncan, Shaq, Kobe, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and the inimitable Michael Jordan (5,987). LeBron also committed six of the Cavs' 18 turnovers, which allowed the Celtics to stay in the game, something he'll look to correct in Boston on Thursday.

LeBron James filled up the stat sheet during his 42 minutes of action on Sunday, scoring 20 points on 8-of-18 shooting (3-of-4 from the stripe), with six rebounds, seven assists, one 3-pointer, two steals, one block and five turnovers.

LeBron also passed Michael Jordan for ninth-most assists in the NBA post-season history with this performance, so there's yet another accolade James can add to his Hall of Fame resume. He did bump knees with Tyler Zeller at one point and limped back to the bench, but he played through it, and his 42 minutes would suggest that this will be a non-issue moving forward.
Apr 19 - 6:04 PM

LeBron James will rest as a precaution during Wednesday's season finale.

Kyrie Irving (hip) will play but all of the Cavs' key players will have their minutes curtailed, according to coach David Blatt. This is a disappointing end to LeBron's regular season, though it's also predictable since the Cavaliers are locked into the No. 2 seed in the East -- they'll play the Celtics in the first round.
Apr 15 - 6:22 PM

LeBron James triple-doubled in Monday's 109-97 win over the Pistons on Monday, scoring 21 points on 7-of-17 shooting (including three treys) with 10 rebounds, 11 assists, two steals and one block.

LeBron's status on Wednesday is questionable until we hear otherwise, but we're not going to put him on the injury report until we get some news to that effect.
Apr 14 - 12:34 AM

The Cavs will not rest players on Monday night against the Pistons.

It's a home game for the Cavs, so they're not going to rest guys like they did in Sunday's game in Boston. Start LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love in all leagues.
Apr 13 - 5:22 PM

LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love and J.R. Smith will all be rested for Sunday's game vs. the Celtics, but they will play vs. the Pistons on Monday.

The Cavaliers have nothing to play for, so it makes a lot of sense for them to get some rest. With these four studs out of the lineup, Matthew Dellavedova, Iman Shumpert (quad), James Jones, Mike Miller, Tristan Thomson and Timofey Mozgov will all be forced to play heavy minutes tonight.
Apr 12 - 1:28 PM

LeBron James played 26 minutes during a 99-90 loss to the Celtics on Friday, scoring 14 points with three rebounds, seven assists, one steal and three turnovers.

He said he probably won't play on Sunday in Boston, so his fantasy owners should absolutely be expecting him to miss that game. The Cavs have two more home games on Monday and Wednesday with nothing to play for. Depending on your format, James isn't a must-own player in re-draft leagues for those needing games before Monday.
Apr 10 - 11:37 PM

LeBron James said that he will play Friday vs. the Celtics.

"I was never sitting out tonight. I never had that in my mind," said James. The Cavs have clinched the No. 2 seed in the East, so it's nice to see that James is willing to suit up for what is essentially a meaningless game for Cleveland. Go ahead and get him active, but know that with the season winding down, and the No. 2 seed locked up, it's very likely James will sit out the last few games of the season. He did mention that he's not sure on his availability for Sunday's game, also against the Celtics.
Apr 10 - 10:52 AM

LeBron James is hinting that he may sit out the next two games, both of which are against the Boston Celtics.

The Cavs have clinched the No. 2 seed in the East and have nothing left to play for. James had a nice game on Wednesday against the Bucks and Brian Windhorst is suggesting he'll sit out the next two, which works in Boston's favor if true. The Celtics and Nets are currently in the playoffs, but the Pacers and Heat are just one game behind them in the standings. The Celtics getting to miss LeBron in two straight games could be a huge win for them in their quest for the playoffs, while LeBron's fantasy owners need to prepare for life without him over the next week. Iman Shumpert could be the guy to benefit most from him missing games.
Apr 9 - 2:09 AM

LeBron James hit 8-of-15 shots and two 3-pointers for 21 points, nine rebounds, eight assists, a steal and a block in Wednesday's win over the Bucks.

LeBron is due for a rest soon, so owners will have to watch the Rotoworld News Feed to make sure he's in the lineup over the last four games. The next two are against the Celtics, then they close out the season at home vs. Detroit and Washington. It would not be surprising to see LeBron sit out two of those. The Cavs wrapped up the division title and second seed with tonight's win, so there's literally nothing left for them to play for. If LeBron, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving sit, Iman Shumpert, Matthew Dellavedova and Tristan Thompson could all come up big for the Cavs.
Apr 8 - 11:27 PM

Head coach David Blatt isn't planning on resting any of his players for Wednesday's game vs. the Bucks.

"We'll seek out our opportunities to give guys a little bit of rest, but we will not be looking to shut down here in the last five games of the season," Blatt said on Wednesday. "We need to keep guys in rhythm, we need to keep guys game-sharp. If there's the opportunity to rest somebody we will, but that's not the first priority right now. Our first priority is to keep playing good basketball, to keep ourselves sharp, to stay ready and to get ourselves in the kind of rhythm we're going to need going into the playoffs." It still sounds like the Cavaliers will rest some of their key players down the stretch, so owners of LeBron James, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving will have to keep an eye on the injury report from here on out.
