LeBron James had his first triple-double of the season during a 120-100 win over the Kings on Monday, scoring 21 points with 10 rebounds, 10 assists, one block, two steals and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.
It's the 40th triple-double of the season, which is the seventh most in NBA history. James is getting more shots now even with Kyrie Irving coming around, averaging 25.0 points, 7.6 boards, 6.8 assists, 1.6 steals, 1.0 blocks and 0.6 treys. He'll hang around late-first value going forward. Feb 8 - 10:11 PM

LeBron James struggled with his shot during Friday's loss to the Celtics, going 9-of-23 from the field on his way to 30 points, seven boards, four assists, two steals, one block and six turnovers in 38 minutes.

The Cavs self-destructed during the closing minutes of the game, and James was not at all pleased with the results saying: "It’s not about the wins and losses but it’s about how we lost. How we lost, it hurts. It’s been a while since I felt like this." LBJ will likely be looking for blood Saturday vs. the Pelicans, and he could very well produce a monstrous line with a matchup against the second-worst team at defending the small forward position.

LeBron James notched 23 points on 10-of-21 shooting with six rebounds, six assists, one steal and two blocks on Wednesday, with only one turnover in 39 minutes.

The Cavs shot 45.8 percent and turned the ball over just eight times, but they were outscored in the paint while being out-rebounded 28-49, a margin LBJ said was "unacceptable" after the game. The loss snapped a five-game win streak and James will be eager to start a new streak on Friday, to the detriment of the Celtics.
Feb 3 - 10:09 PM

LeBron James made 9-of-22 from the field and 6-of-10 from the line for 24 points during a 111-106 overtime win over the Pacers on Monday, adding 12 rebounds, six assists, one block, two steals and one turnover.

Myles Turner actually blocked LeBron three times tonight. The sub-par shooting is nothing to worry about with LeBron busting out for a 55.2 field goal percentage last month. His big problem earlier in the year is missing open shots, but he has that all sorted out now. Expect LeBron to stay above 52 percent from the field going forward.

The Cavs had an "extended and spirited" players-only meeting following the firing of David Blatt, sources told ESPN.

Per the report, the meeting turned into an "airing of grievances," so we're hopeful there was a Festivus pole involved. A "central issue" was the "need for accountability," and it sounds like the team is now on the same page. LeBron, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving owned up to "personal faults," and that undoubtedly helped set a new tone for a club that needed one.

LeBron James dominated against the Spurs during a 117-103 win on Saturday, scoring 29 points with five rebounds, seven assists, two steals and two blocks in 34 minutes.

The Cavs are really scoring a ton in their last four with 115.0 points per game. Their pace actually isn't up, but they are lighting it up in efficiency with a 61.7 true shooting percentage thanks to crushing it at the rim. As for LeBron, he put up No. 6 value in January and his long shooting slump to end 2015 is long gone.
Jan 30 - 11:41 PM

LeBron James scored 20 points with nine rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one turnover in 36 minutes against the Pistons on Friday during a 114-106 win.

He became the youngest player ever to score 26,000 points and beat Kobe Bryant by over a year. James also got into the top 20 all time on the assists list. James stepped it up a bit recently and is putting up top-12 value this season.
Jan 30 - 1:18 AM

LeBron James was tremendously efficient in 31 minutes vs. the Suns, scoring 21 points on 7-of-8 FGs and 7-of-7 FTs, with three rebounds, nine assists and two turnovers.

The Cavs have been running at the league's third-slowest pace, with 95.0 possessions per game, and coach Tyronn Lue has criticized his team for a lack of proper conditioning. That ultimatum from Lue, combined with LeBron's role as a leader on a team in flux, should all but eliminate the risk of a precautionary DNP-CD in the next few weeks. LBJ is rolling right now, and he'll go back to work vs. the Pistons on Friday.
Jan 27 - 9:47 PM

LeBron James scored 25 points against the Wolves during a 114-107 win on Monday, adding four rebounds, nine assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

He was 11-of-15 from the field and looks to have ended his mini-slump from last week. James' assists are also up right now with at least nine in three straight. The Cavs only have a 2.5-game lead over the Raptors, so that's good news for LeBron's fantasy owners.
Jan 25 - 11:00 PM

LeBron James fell just one assist shy of a triple-double in Saturday's 96-83 loss to the Bulls, finishing with 26 points, 13 boards and nine assists.

Tyronn Lue made his debut as the head coach of the Cavaliers after the team let go of David Blatt on Friday, but it's obvious that he has his work cut out for him. The Cavs shot just 9-of-22 from the free throw line which obviously didn't help, but other than James the offense looked pretty stagnant. James added two steals and one block in 40 minutes, and he will look to get the Cavs back on track on Monday vs. the Wolves.
Jan 23 - 11:07 PM

LeBron James scored 22 points in 115-102 win against the Clippers on Thursday, adding five rebounds, 12 assists and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

He had no turnovers tonight for just the second time all season. LeBron's turnovers have dropped to 2.5 this month from 4.2 in December while his 55.1 percent from the field in January is much better than 47.4 percent in December. James looks great and his owners should be rooting for the Raptors and Hawks to keep the standings close in the Eastern Conference.
Jan 21 - 11:54 PM

LeBron James hasn't thought much about the 2016 Olympics and will wait to make a decision on his participation.

James is on the 30-man list that will be used to select the final roster, but said he hasn't given much thought to his participation. "I'm not any inch closer to playing or not any inch closer to not playing," James said. "I haven't really thought about it much." With the Olympics put on the back burner, James can focus on the 2015-16 season and continue to return first-round value in standard fantasy leagues.
Jan 19 - 9:47 AM

LeBron James scored 16 points against the Warriors during a 132-98 loss on Monday, adding five rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block in 33 minutes.

It was an awful game and the worst home loss of LeBron's career. He also had a career-worst minus-34 today. The Cavs just ran into a buzzsaw today and James should bounce back on Wednesday against the Nets.
Jan 18 - 11:10 PM

LeBron James flirted with a triple-double during an easy win over the Rockets on Friday, compiling 19 points, seven boards, seven assists, two blocks, one 3-pointer and four turnovers in 36 minutes.

James has been lighting it up from beyond the arc (2.1 three-pointers per game) through the month of January, and his improved 3-point shooting has him cranking out an effective field goal percentage of 62.8 through that eight game span. He's also averaging 25.1 points, 7.5 boards, 6.3 assists, 1.4 steals and just 2.6 turnovers per game over that span, which has him ranked No. 6 overall in standard leagues. If you want to sell-high on the King, now would be the time to do it.
Jan 16 - 1:07 AM

LeBron James will play vs. the Rockets on Friday, though the Cavaliers did consider resting him.

Cleveland doesn't play again until Monday so they opted not to rest King James, but this serves as a reminder that he will be subject to occasional rest days as the season continues. Owners should keep an eye on his availability for back-to-back sets on Jan. 20/21 and Jan. 29/30.
