Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (illness) missed shootaround this morning and is questionable for Saturday's game against the Chicago Bulls. What It Means: James put up a triple-double and looked pretty healthy on Thursday, so this illness has cropped up sometime between then and Saturday. If James can not play on Saturday, Richard Jefferson will get the start in his place and Kyrie Irving will be extremely busy against the Bulls. If he does play, our models expect James to post 25.5 points, 7.6 rebounds, 8.8 assists and 1.5 steals over 37.5 minutes against the Bulls....

The Cavaliers jumbo lineup is doing wonders for the second unit

The Cavaliers jumbo lineup is doing wonders for the second unit

The Cavaliers have been trotting out a massive second unit and it is torching the opposition. The Cavs, to say the least, have been light on guards this season. J.R. Smith has been hurt. Mo Williams retired right before the season started. DeAndre Liggins, Jordan McRae and Kay Felder are all a combination of “not ready yet” or “not good enough” to get regular minutes on a team as talented as the Cavaliers, though Liggins has shown some ability to be a part of productive lineups. That leaves Kyrie Irving, Iman Shumpert and Kyle Korver as the sole “guards” on the roster, with...
