Active Sprained right wrist Open link
James will play on Friday vs. the Kings, despite being considered doubtful heading in due to his sprained right wrist. He was a limited participant in morning shootaround, but was cleared to play after another pregame evaluation of his wrist. James suffered the injury after a hard fall during Tuesday's win, and subsequently missed the second game of the back-to-back on Wednesday. His return after the one-game absence will take back minutes on the wing from JR Smith, Matthew Dellavedova, Shawn Marion, and Mike Miller.

Doubtful Sprained right wrist Open link
James remains doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Kings due to his sprained right wrist, although he's expected to go through another evaluation of his wrist during pregame warmups. He was a limited participant in shootaround and is continuing to receive treatment. James briefly left Tuesday's win after a hard fall near the end of the third quarter where he braced himself with both arms. He was flexing his wrist after the fall, though he managed to return to start the fourth quarter without any issues. James said afterwards that his wrist was good, but he was scared at the time it happened because he broke a wrist when he was in high school. JR Smith, Matthew Dellavedova, Shawn Marion, and Mike Miller will continue to see additional run on the wing in his place.

Questionable Left wrist Open link
James is considered a game-time decision for Wednesday's contest vs. the Blazers due to a left wrist injury. He briefly left Tuesday's win after a hard fall near the end of the third quarter where he braced himself with both arms. James was flexing his wrist after the fall, though he managed to return to start the fourth quarter without any issues. He said afterwards that his wrist was good, but he was scared at the time it happened because he broke a wrist when he was in high school. We'll continue to update James' status as needed, and it'll be JR Smith, Matthew Dellavedova, Shawn Marion, and Mike Miller seeing additional run on the wing if he has to miss any time.

Probable Left wrist Open link
James briefly left Tuesday's game after a hard fall near the end of the third quarter. He braced himself with both arms and was flexing his left wrist after the fall, but returned to the game to start the fourth quarter and appeared to have no issues. He said after the game that the wrist was good, but he was scared at the time it happened because he broke a wrist when he was in high school. The Cavs play the second of a back-to-back on Wednesday and it doesn't appear that this will cost him any time going forward.
1/21/2015 10:06 AM
Active Illness Open link
James will play on Wednesday vs. the Jazz after participating in shootaround. He sat out practice on Tuesday due to illness, staying home to recover instead, but looks to be good to go and shouldn't be limited in any way on Wednesday.
1/20/2015 1:33 PM
Questionable Illness Open link
James did not practice on Tuesday due to illness, staying home to rest instead. We're considering him questionable for now ahead of Wednesday's game vs. the Jazz, and his status will be determined by how he feels after shootaround. JR Smith, Mike Miller, Shawn Marion, and James Jones would see additional run at small forward should James have to miss any time.
1/13/2015 6:32 PM
Active Left knee, lower back Open link
James will be active and in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game vs. the Suns, with coach David Blatt saying he expects to keep James' minutes in the low 30s. James said earlier in the day that he was dealing with some soreness after returning to practice on Monday, but that it was expected soreness and not pain related to his injuries. James missed the past eight games due to left knee and lower back strains, including Sunday's loss vs. the Kings. James' return will affect minutes for JR Smith, Mike Miller, and Matthew Dellavedova on the wing, with Shawn Marion (hip) also in the mix on Tuesday after missing the past two games.
1/13/2015 11:15 AM
Questionable Left knee, lower back Open link
James participated in morning shootaround but remains a game-time decision for Tuesday's contest vs. the Suns. He said he's dealing with some soreness after returning to practice on Monday, and it's not out of the question that he'll choose to sit out one more game although it's expected soreness and not pain related to his injuries. James has missed the past eight games due to left knee and lower back strains, including Sunday's loss vs. the Kings. "We entered this process with the expressed idea of getting him back 100 percent," coach David Blatt said. "When he's ready, that's when he will play." James' eventual return will affect minutes for JR Smith, Mike Miller, and Matthew Dellavedova on the wing, with Shawn Marion (hip) in the mix on Tuesday after missing the past two games.
1/12/2015 3:29 PM
Questionable Left knee, lower back Open link
James practiced on Monday and will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's contest vs. the Suns. He has missed the past eight games due to left knee and lower back strains, including Sunday's loss vs. the Kings. "We entered this process with the expressed idea of getting him back 100 percent," coach David Blatt said. "When he's ready, that's when he will play." James had been adhering to the team's medical protocol, which has mandated that he must have at least one solid practice before returning to play, and has now passed that requirement.
1/12/2015 10:23 AM
Questionable Left knee, lower back Open link
James could return to the lineup for Tuesday's contest vs. the Suns, provided he has a strong practice on Monday. Coach David Blatt said he is hopeful James will practice on Monday after missing the past eight games due to left knee and lower back strains, including Sunday's game against the Sacramento Kings. "Right now we're in a stage where he is shooting and he is moving," Blatt said. "He's running through sets. He still hasn't done live work. [Monday] we will see if we can do that with him." James took part in a 25-minute shooting and dribbling workout that grew in intensity before Sunday's loss. The intensity of his participation in Monday's practice will be based on how he feels as it progresses. Blatt didn't rule out James playing Tuesday and added that it was "very possible" he will play on the team's current road trip that also includes games at the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers this week. "We entered this process with the expressed idea of getting him back 100 percent," Blatt said. "When he's ready, that's when he will play." James has been adhering to the team's medical protocol, which has mandated that he must have at least one solid practice before returning to play.
1/10/2015 3:55 PM
Injured Left knee, lower back Open link
Coach David Blatt said James won't practice Saturday and will not play on Sunday vs. the Kings. He added that James is making progress, however, and was on the court getting some shots up. James had said on Wednesday that he remains "on target" to return from his knee and back issues after another week of rest and rehabilitation. He'll travel on the team's upcoming five-game road trip and said he's targeting a return for their Jan. 15 game vs. the Lakers, though he could return earlier. Tests confirmed that James has no structural damage in his sore knee and back, and he's being treated with anti-inflammatories, rehabilitation, training room treatments, and rest. James also said Wednesday that he would have been playing for the past week if it were the playoffs. Mike Miller, JR Smith, Shawn Marion, James Jones, and Matthew Dellavedova will collectively see the additional run while he remains sidelined, and Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love will be relied on heavily on the offensive end.

Injured Left knee, lower back Open link
Coach David Blatt said Sunday that James' timeline for a return from strains of his left knee and lower back remains "fluid," with the Cavs having announced Thursday that he was projected to be sidelined for two weeks. James will be re-evaluated on Wednesday, but at this point appears unlikely to return in the middle of the team's upcoming five-game West Coast road trip, which runs through Jan. 16 and features five games in eight days. That schedule leaves little time for practice sessions, and the Cavs' home game vs. the Bulls on Jan. 19 seems a more likely target for his return at this point, based on the two-week timetable. James has no structural damage and is being treated with anti-inflammatories, rehabilitation, training room treatments, and rest, with his specific timetable to be determined based on his recovery. Shawn Marion, Dion Waiters, Mike Miller, James Jones, and Matthew Dellavedova will collectively see the additional run while James remains sidelined, and Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love, and Waiters will be relied on heavily on the offensive end.
1/1/2015 1:48 PM
Injured Left knee, lower back Open link
The Cavs announced Thursday that James is projected to miss the next two weeks due to strains of his left knee and lower back. James was evaluated at the Cleveland Clinic on Wednesday, and the good news at least is that the battery of tests do appear to have ruled out any structural damage. He'll be treated with anti-inflammatories, rehabilitation, training room treatments, and rest, with his specific timetable to be determined based on his recovery. James had already missed the past two games, and the current projected timetable means that he would miss approximately seven more games. Shawn Marion (ankle), Dion Waiters, Mike Miller, James Jones, and Matthew Dellavedova will collectively see the additional run while James remains sidelined, and Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love (back), and Waiters will be relied on heavily on the offensive end with James unavailable.
1/1/2015 10:22 AM
Questionable Left knee soreness Open link
James has missed the past two games due to left knee soreness, an issue he's been dealing with "pretty much all year," although tests to this point have ruled out structural damage and he doesn't see it as a serious issue. "I’m not concerned because all the tests that we’ve done with the docs have come back negative," said James on Wednesday. "Hopefully, (I’ll return for the) Charlotte game (Jan. 2) or the Dallas game (Jan. 4), and go week by week." His status does remain in question in the short-term, as he's still dealing with some swelling and won't return before it subsides. Dion Waiters, Mike Miller, James Jones, and Matthew Dellavedova will continue to collectively see additional run if James misses more time, with Kyrie Irving carrying even more of the Cavs' offense than usual.
12/31/2014 4:34 PM
Out Left knee soreness Open link
James has been ruled out for Wednesday's contest vs. the Bucks as he continues to deal with left knee soreness. He sat out Tuesday because of the the same issue, which has bothered him all season and has caused him to miss three games to this point. Dion Waiters, Mike Miller, James Jones, and Matthew Dellavedova will continue to collectively see additional run in James' absence on Wednesday, with Kyrie Irving carrying even more of the Cavs' offense than usual.
12/30/2014 5:03 PM
Out Left knee soreness Open link
James has been ruled out of Tuesday's contest vs. the Hawks due to left knee soreness. Coach David Blatt called him day-to-day, and said, "We want to get him right." That left knee has continued to give James problems over the past couple weeks, and this marks the second game that he'll have to miss this season because of it. Teammate Shawn Marion has also been ruled out Tuesday due to a sprained left ankle. Dion Waiters, Mike Miller, James Jones, and Matthew Dellavedova will all collectively see additional run in their absence on Tuesday, with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love carrying even more of the Cavs' offense than usual.
12/30/2014 12:00 PM
Questionable Left knee soreness Open link
James is listed as questionable for Tuesday's contest vs. the Hawks due to left knee soreness. That left knee has continued to give him some problems over the past couple weeks, though it's only caused him to miss one game so far. We'll continue to update James' status as needed in the off chance that he has to miss any time, which seems unlikely. Teammate Shawn Marion (ankle) is also listed as questionable.
12/25/2014 6:18 PM
Active Left knee Open link
James returned to Thursday's game to start the fourth quarter after briefly heading to the locker room earlier with a slight limp. He landed awkwardly while chasing a loose ball into the stands and stayed in the game for a few plays after the play, but was massaging his left knee and eventually asked to be subbed out. James looks to be moving fine, but it's worth noting that he missed a game on Dec. 11 with soreness in the same knee.
12/12/2014 6:07 PM
Active Left knee soreness Open link
James will be active and in the starting lineup vs. the Pelicans on Friday after testing his knee during warmups. James sat out Thursday's game vs. the Thunder due to soreness in his left knee, which he said he first started experiencing back on Tuesday. Coach David Blatt said the team was just being cautious holding him out though and does not believe the issue is serious, addingthat there is no plan for James to undergo an MRI at this point. His return to the active roster will cut into the minutes of Shawn Marion and Matthew Dellavedova.
12/11/2014 5:36 PM
Out Left knee soreness Open link
James has been ruled out of Thursday's game vs. the Thunder due to soreness in his left knee. Cavs coach David Blatt said the team is just being cautious holding him out, and does not believe the knee issue is serious. He added that there is no plan for James to undergo an MRI at this point, and calls him "50-50" (questionable) for Friday's contest vs. the Pelicans. Matthew Dellavedova will move into the starting lineup on Thursday, with Kyrie Irving sliding over to shooting guard and Shawn Marion to small forward. Expect extended run for Dion Waiters and James Jones off the bench.
12/11/2014 11:18 AM
Questionable Left knee soreness Open link
James did not participate in shootaround and is considered a game-time decision for Thursday's contest vs. the Thunder due to soreness in his left knee. He skipped media availability to get treatment, and we'll continue to update his status as soon as we hear more. The Cavs said they aren't seriously concerned about the soreness especially given he hasn't had knee issues in the past, but they will be conservative in this situation regardless. Shawn Marion, Mike Miller, and James Jones would get extended run at small forward in the off chance that James has to miss time.
11/17/2014 4:26 PM
Active Head cold Open link
James missed shootaround this morning due to a head cold but will be in the starting lineup and play on Monday vs. the Nuggets, as expected. We're expecting reduced minutes for James and teammates Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love in what will be a likely blowout, and James' cold is even less reason for coach David Blatt to play him heavy minutes.
11/17/2014 10:21 AM
Probable Head cold Open link
James missed shootaround this morning due to a head cold, but is still expected to play on Monday vs. the Nuggets. This looks to be purely precautionary, and we'll continue to update his status as needed but he should be considered good to go against what will be a depleted Nuggets side without Danilo Gallinari (rest), Nate Robinson (rest), JJ Hickson (rest) and possibly Randy Foye (knee).
