LeBron James racked up 27 points, five assists, four rebounds and three steals in just 28 minutes on Wednesday, hitting 9-of-15 shots including a 4-of-6 mark from downtown.
Tonight's game was all about 3-point shooting, but LeBron came in averaging a league-high 1.33 points per possession on post-ups during the playoffs (among qualifying players). It's an interesting wrinkle since the Hawks' defense has allowed the third-fewest points off post-ups (0.64 points per possession), behind only the Raptors and Clippers. As tonight's line reiterates, LBJ is simply too versatile to be held in check offensively during the course of a seven-game series. May 4 - 10:41 PM

LeBron James scored 25 points during a 104-93 Game 1 win over the Hawks on Monday, adding seven rebounds, nine assists, five steals, one block, four turnovers and two 3-pointers.

The Cavs lost an 18-point lead, but they finished strong to earn the home win. James picked up his 120th playoff victory in this win, which passed Michael Jordan's 119. He was hit in the face in the fourth quarter and remained down for about 15 seconds, but he didn't miss time after that. The Cavs will look to go 6-0 in the postseason on Wednesday.
May 2 - 10:33 PM

LeBron James posted 22 points, 11 rebounds, six assists and two steals on Sunday to help the Cavs sweep the Pistons in the first round.

James passed Scottie Pippen for career postseason rebounds tonight (1,593) and the victory gives him four consecutive first-round sweeps in the playoffs. The Cavs didn't shoot well tonight (41.9 percent), but they drained 13 threes and limited the self-inflicted damage with a mere five turnovers. They have plenty of time to rest before facing the winner of the Hawks vs. Celtics series.
Apr 24 - 11:31 PM

LeBron James scored 20 points during a Game 3 101-91 win over the Pistons on Friday, adding 13 rebounds, seven assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 43 minutes.

He did only make 8-of-24 from the field with five turnovers, so that's a lot of inefficient usage. James has owned the first round in the postseason and will go for his fourth consecutive sweep on Sunday. The Cavs have seen their stars all step up, including 20-plus scoring efforts from LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love in Game 1 and 3. The Pistons have played it close, but LeBron has just been too good when he needs to be.
Apr 22 - 10:32 PM

LeBron James guided the Cavs to a Game 2 victory with 27 points on 12-of-18 shooting, six boards, three assists, three steals and a pair of 3-pointers.

James took umbrage with Pistons rookie Stanley Johnson and proceeded to steam-roll Detroit after a quiet first quarter. In his career, LeBron's teams have a combined 42-8 record in the first round of the playoffs, a remarkable stretch that includes zero losses since 2012. He's now played in 180 postseason games in his career, one more than Michael Jordan, and he's hoping to play at least 14 more this year.
Apr 20 - 11:04 PM

LeBron James could not be stopped during Sunday's Game 1 win over the Pistons, putting up 22 points, 11 rebounds, six assists, two steals, two blocks and just one turnover in 41 minutes.

Detroit had zero answers for James, and he was getting into the paint at will all game long. He made life very difficult for both Tobias Harris and Marcus Morris when he was their primary defender, and the fact that the Cavs pulled out a win despite Detroit shooting 15-of-29 from beyond the arc isn't a great sign regarding the Pistons' chances of pulling off an upset.
Apr 17 - 7:14 PM

LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, J.R. Smith and Kevin Love will all be rested for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

Cleveland has the No. 1 seed out East all locked up, giving them zero incentive to play their studs in what will ultimately be a meaningless game for the Cavs. Matthew Dellavedova, Richard Jefferson, James Jones and Channing Frye are all candidates to head into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game, with Dellavedova being one of the more attractive DFS targets out of that group.

LeBron James scored 34 points during a 109-94 win over the Hawks on Monday, adding six rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block and three 3-pointers.

His regular season is over with James set to rest on Wednesday night. He was the best player in the Eastern Conference once again and he'll probably be making All-NBA First Team for the ninth consecutive season. The Cavs will be playing the Pistons or Pacers in the first round.
Apr 11 - 10:07 PM

LeBron James returned from a one-game absence in a 105-102 loss to the Bulls on Saturday, scoring 33 points on 13-of-17 shooting with seven boards, three assists, one block and four 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

James and Kyrie Irving both played 39 minutes, so it has to hurt that the Cavaliers were unable to clinch the No. 1 seed in the East tonight. They have two more games on the schedule and need just one more win, but don't be surprised if James gets another maintenance day next week. Unlike last season, the Cavs are making sure that James is going to be fresh for the postseason.
Apr 9 - 11:58 PM

LeBron James (rest) is listed as the probable starter for Saturday's game vs. the Bulls.

He's fully expected to play after missing Wednesday's game for rest purposes, and the Cavs are expected to have everyone available except for Mo Williams (knee). The Cavs don't have any more back-to-back sets and have three games left, but a win tonight would allow them to clinch the No. 1 seed in the East. Don't be surprised if LeBron gets another maintenance day next week.
Apr 9 - 11:24 AM

The Cavaliers are not expected to rest any players on Saturday vs. the Bulls.

Coach Tyronn Lue said that every player will be "available" except for Mo Williams (knee), meaning owners of LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love can expect to have them in their lineups. Expect another update after Saturday's morning shootaround.
Apr 8 - 1:44 PM

LeBron James is out for rest Wednesday night against the Pacers.

It's the second half of a back-to-back set for the Cavs and it's on the road, so this isn't a huge surprise. The Cavs almost have to lose out to not keep their top spot in the Eastern Conference. J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert and Richard Jefferson should play more. This will also help Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love get more shots.
Apr 6 - 5:12 PM

LeBron James notched 17 points, nine assists, five rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer in just 28 minutes during a 109-80 win vs. Milwaukee on Tuesday.

Cleveland now leads the Raptors by four games with four games left on their schedule, but they haven't clinched the East since Toronto holds the tie-breaker. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, that heightens the odds that key players will be rested in the second half of a back-to-back set on Wednesday. Tyronn Lue already said that he's not sure who will play vs. Indiana, so owners should double-check the status of LeBron, Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love and even J.R. Smith.
Apr 5 - 11:00 PM

LeBron James will play Tuesday vs. the Bucks.

It's the first half of a back-to-back set for the Cavs, but luckily for James' fantasy owners, that will not result in a rest day. Go ahead and get him active.
Apr 5 - 6:49 PM

LeBron James led the Cavs to a 112-103 win on Sunday with 31 points on 14-of-22 shooting, eight boards, two steals, and a game-high 12 assists.

LeBron is now a remarkable 24-1 against the Hornets in his career. He barely missed a triple-double on Friday but it isn't all good news for fantasy purposes -- the Cavs have a four-game lead over the No. 2 seed Raptors and LeBron is a definite DNP risk down the stretch. It can't hurt to confirm his status for Tuesday's game vs. the Bucks.
