    LeBron James scored 15 points on 5-of-12 shooting with seven rebounds and 13 dimes in Monday's 107-139 loss to the Celtics.

    James continues his absurd assist rate, but tonight he wasn't able to register any money counters. The Celtics dominated the Lakers in this match though, so the fact that James was still able to deliver an almost full line is an accomplishment in itself.

    LeBron James dominated the Rockets in a 124-115 victory with 31 points, five rebounds, 12 assists and two steals.

    James carried the Lakers to a victory without Anthony Davis. James has bounced back this year and is putting up first-round value again. Expect more of the same moving forward for LeBron.

    LeBron James did his best to keep the Lakers in Wednesday's 119-118 loss to the Magic, tying his career high with 19 assists, while also scoring 19 on 7-of-19 from the field.

    James did his best to keep the Anthony Davis-less Lakers in this one, and showed us again why he is one of the best passers in the league. He was a little light on the boards with Dwight Howard seeing extended minutes, but James is still a top-10 player halfway through the season.

    LeBron James had a game-high 31 points in Monday's win over the Cavs to go with two rebounds, eight assists, a steal and a 3-pointer.

    James is coming off last week as fantasy's No. 1 player and continued where he left off against his former team. He went 6-for-7 at the line and if the free throw shooting improvement sticks, it'll shore up the only flaw in his fantasy game.

    LeBron James (flu-like symptoms) will play on Monday vs. the Cavs.

    James missed Saturday's game, but he's ready to go for this one. With Anthony Davis out, James will be busier than usual once again.

    LeBron James (illness) is probable to play on Monday.

    James sat out on Saturday after he was able to go on Friday, but that had the looks of a reasonable rest day on a back-to-back. Get Bron plugged into all lineups for next week.

    Kyle Kuzma scored 36 points in Saturday's win over the Thunder, chipping in seven rebounds and four 3's.

    Kuzma had the green-light with both LeBron James and Anthony Davis out with injury. The 24 field goal attempts were a season-high for him as the Lakers kept on feeding him the ball. Fantasy owners have to be happy with his performance, as he also chipped in seven boards, but would have liked him to register in any of the other categories.

    Lebron James will miss Saturday's game vs. the Thunder with a cold.

    This is unexpected news given that James played on Friday, but it's also perfectly understandable on the second half of a back-to-back. James should be fine for next week. In his absence, expect Rajon Rondo to take over primary ballhandling duties while Alex Caruso and Quinn Cook will likely get a bump in minutes. It remains to be seen what this Lakers team looks like with both James and Anthony Davis off the floor, but we can assume that it won't be pretty.

    LeBron James finished Friday's 129-114 victory over the Mavericks with 35 points (14-for-25 shooting), 16 rebounds, sevn assists, three triples and a steal.

    LeBron James battled through an illness that had him questionable before this game but looked no worse for the wear in a dominating performance. As has been the case for seemingly forever, continue rating James as a top-10 asset.

    LeBron James (illness) will play for the Lakers on Friday.

    The King will be without his Archduke Anthony Davis tonight, so expect a huge game from LeBron, illness notwithstanding.

    LeBron James (illness) is probable for Friday's game against the Mavs.

    James toasted the Knicks for 31-5-5 after being a game-time decision on Tuesday, so unless he gets worse overnight we're fully expecting him to be out there tomorrow.

    LeBron James (illness) hit six 3-pointers and all seven of his freebies in a 117-87 blowout win over the Knicks on Tuesday, adding 31 points on 9-of-19 shooting, five rebounds, five assists, two steals and a block in 31 minutes.

    The NBA's assist leader was more focused on scoring tonight as Anthony Davis (sacral contusion) had to exit early. James will need to pick up the slack for at least a few games while Davis is out. LeBron is cruising toward another top-10 fantasy finish at age 35.

    LeBron James (illness) will play on Wednesday against the Knicks.

    We'll see if LeBron plays his usual allotment of minutes given that he's clearly under the weather. Regardless, he's got a spot in all lineups, as usual.

    LeBron James (illness) is a game-time decision on Wednesday.

    There really shouldn't be a need for James to play against the Knicks, who will be missing their leading scorer, but he'll meet with team docs prior to tip-off to see if he can go.

    Coach Frank Vogel said that LeBron James is under the weather, and his status for Tuesday's game against the Knicks is uncertain, though the team is hopeful that he can play.

    With the Lakers and Knicks game starting at 10:30, we may not have clarity on James' status before the early games kick-off. This is a situation to monitor in both DFS and season-long leagues. Kyle Kuzma is likely to step into the starting lineup, while there would be a ton of usage up for grabs should James be unavailable.
