LeBron James SF CLE 22 Days

James has been dealing with soreness in his wrist and ankle but is expected to take the court against the Lakers on Sunday, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

The soreness that James is suffering can likely be chalked up to the normal wear and tear of a long and grueling NBA season. He should be deployed across all formats against a lackluster Lakers team Sunday.

James scored 25 points (10-21 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 5-8 FT) and added six rebounds, five assists, two steals, and a block in 39 minutes against the Pacers. He also committed seven turnovers.

James is so dominant, both in terms of fantasy and real game-play, that his performances are sometimes more noteworthy for their flaws than their successes. Though James contributed across the board Friday, his seven turnovers are a reminder to managers in turnover leagues that James commits more than almost anyone in the league. Even accounting for this category, however, he is still one of fantasy's greatest producers.

James recorded a double-double in 36 minutes Monday against Philadelphia as he scored 18 points (6-17 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT) to go along with three rebounds, 11 assists and two steals.

James struggled from the field Monday, but still managed to provide fantasy owners with excellent counting stats. Even on an off night, James is still an extremely valuable fantasy asset.

James (wrist) returned from a one-game absence Friday, putting up 19 points (7-16 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-6 FT), three rebounds, seven assists, four steals, and two blocks in 33 minutes against the Kings.

James was considered doubtful to play as late as Friday morning, so the fact that his wrist injury healed enough for him to play against a lowly team like the Kings on Friday night bodes well for his status going forward. The Cavs play the Timberwolves on Saturday.

James (wrist) will play Friday, the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Chris Haynes reports.

This comes as a surprise, as he had been listed as doubtful earlier in the day. Obviously he should be deployed in all full-season leagues, and against a shaky Kings team, he should be a solid play in daily leagues as well.

James (wrist) attended the morning shootaround, but he remains doubtful for Friday's game against the Kings, the Akron Beacon Journal's Jason Lloyd reports.

James is expected to miss a second consecutive game, which means Shawn Marion will likely make another start. The real beneficiaries from a fantasy perspective are Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love and J.R. Smith, as James' absence leaves far more shots to go around.

James (wrist) is considered doubtful to take the court Friday versus the Kings, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

After taking a hard fall Tuesday, James was diagnosed with a sprained wrist, which forced a DNP on Wednesday. The Cavaliers are currently on the second outing of five games in seven nights, so expect precaution to rule the day as the week unfolds. In James' place Wednesday, Shawn Marion entered the starting five.

James (wrist) will not play in Wednesday's game, the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Chris Haynes reports.

He was questionable with a wrist injury that he suffered Tuesday, but was able to play through. Look for Shawn Marion and Iman Shumpert to see extended run Wednesday in his absence. The Cavaliers play again Friday against the Kings, and James should be considered day-to-day.

James (wrist) is a game-time call for Wednesday's game against the Blazers, Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio reports.

James took a hard fall in Tuesday's win over the Pistons and landed awkwardly on his wrist. While it's nothing overly serious, James is dealing with soreness and could be held out. A final call isn't likely to come until after he's had a chance to test the wrist out in pregame warmups.

James had another strong performance during Tuesday's win over the Detroit Pistons, finishing with 32 points (11-24 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 10-11 FT), six rebounds, seven assists and a steal in 35 minutes.

James has been on an absolute tear lately, helping the Cavaliers win seven straight. During their seven game win streak, James is averaging 29.7 points, 6.7 rebounds and 6.6 assists, so he's been keeping his fantasy owners very happy. With the Cavaliers and James in a groove right now, look for him to continue to post these types of numbers, although he'll have a much tougher matchup against the Portland Trail Blazers Wednesday, who held him to only 11 points the last time they played.
