Out Rest Open link
James and teammate Chris Bosh have both been ruled out of the Heat's season finale vs. the Sixers on Wednesday as the duo will take the game off to rest. Miami has already ceded the No. 1 seed in the East to Indiana, so this one has no implications whatsoever for their playoff seeding. Coach Erik Spoelstra went with a smaller look on Monday when James and Bosh sat out, sliding Dwyane Wade (probable, rest) over to small forward and starting Shane Battier at power forward. There's no word yet on who will start, but James and Bosh's absences will open up additional run for Rashard Lewis, Battier, and Michael Beasley.

Out Rest Open link
James and teammate Chris Bosh will sit out Monday's game vs. the Wizards to rest, as expected. The move makes sense especially for LeBron, who has been playing huge minutes all season with an expanded workload given Dwyane Wade's regular DNP's. He has shown clear signs of fatigue down the stretch so the rest comes at an opportune time, and it's very possible both James and Bosh sit out Wednesday's season finale vs. the Sixers as well. James' absence means additional minutes at the forward spots for Michael Beasley, Shane Battier, and Rashard Lewis, with Chris Andersen and Udonis Haslem to see more run with Bosh out. Dwyane Wade (hamstring, knees) will start and be asked to carry the majority of the offensive load on Monday, though he'll still be on a minutes restriction.

Active Back spasms Open link
James will return to the starting lineup for Friday's game vs. the Grizzlies after sitting out Wednesday's loss, the second of a back-to-back, due to back spasms. Coach Erik Spoelstra, on LeBron's status: "He says he feels better. Hopefully the extra couple days of rest helps." His return will push Michael Beasley back to a very limited reserve role.

Out Back spasms Open link
James is a late scratch for Wednesday's game vs. the Celtics with back spasms. This one came out of nowhere, and is presumed to be precautionary on what is the second game of a back-to-back. The Heat are listing LeBron as day-to-day. Michael Beasley will start in his place at small forward, with Shane Battier seeing additional run off the bench as well.

Active Broken nose Open link
James is officially in the starting five for the Heat on Thursday vs the Knicks. LeBron went through a full practice on Wednesday with his protective mask and said the mask is a nuisance, but necessary. "It's still uncomfortable, but I still have to wear it. It is frustrating, but I wore it throughout practice, throughout contact drills and throughout shooting drills, just to get some rhythm with it," James said.

Out Broken nose Open link
LeBron will not play on Sunday, with coach Erik Spoelstra saying that the Heat having the next three days off made the decision to rest him a much easier one. This will give James a full week off before returning on Thursday vs. the Knicks. Greg Oden will enter the starting lineup for the Heat to match up with Joakim Noah, with Michael Beasley also to see more minutes with LeBron inactive.

 Comment3/28/2014 10:46 PMTrusted Advisor jphanned 100% (1)Miami gained another game on Indiana (now 2 GB), so perhaps that disincentives resting him this early. Possible, but Wade resting again seems more likely with Bron carrying the load.

 Comment3/24/2014 11:37 AMmrg12686 100% (1)He's a few weeks removed from one of his best career games. Don't think he is declining, just don't think he cares about the regular season unless he is being doubted as clear #1 in league.
 Comment3/24/2014 8:09 AMTrusted Advisor silentjim 33% (3)With 30,000 minutes already before 30 are we starting to see the decline of Lebron? Will he put winning before MVPs thus affecting his fantasy value?

 Comment11/27/2013 10:53 PMTrusted Advisor mbuser 0% (0)Bumped his FT% a bit, but this is one number that does tend to rise and fall for him. Was at 72.7% before his recent stretch of big games.

 Comment10/3/2013 10:55 AMTrusted Advisor mbuser 100% (2)I can't think of many things that don't seem achievable for LeBron, but FT% is on area where it's wise to err on the pessimistic side. He's been pretty consistent for a while now.
 Comment10/3/2013 2:57 AMwestbreezy 0% (0)Buser, should his FT% projections be updated? Reports that he's worked on his FT% a lot in the offseason. I personally bumped him up to 77%, seems achievable. Said 80% is his goal for the season.
