James had another triple-double Sunday night against Toronto, finishing with 13 points (5-15 FG, 0-2 3PT, 3-6 FT), 15 assists and 13 rebounds.
It was a rough night from the field for James, who took a more passive approach on the offensive end, but he still notched his fourth triple-double in five contests. The four-time MVP leads the league in assists per game (11.0) through nine contests.
James had 30 points (10-19 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 8-9 FT), 10 rebounds, 11 assists, two steals and one block in 35 minutes of a 118-112 win against the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday.
James turned in his third consecutive triple-double while finishing with a game-high in points. The 34-year-old's second season in Los Angeles is off to a great start, and the former MVP is dominating like he did when he was younger. The only area he's been under performing is his shooting from outside the arc, but if he continues to fill up the box score there's no cause for concern. Los Angeles will next take the court against Miami on Friday.
James had 21 points (8-23 FG, 0-6 3PT, 5-10 FT), 13 assists and 11 rebounds during the Lakers' 103-96 win at the Spurs on Sunday night.
It was another vintage performance from James, who is now coming off back-to-back triple-double performances. Due to his ability to impact the game at a high level on both ends of the court while also racking up stats for fun, LeBron should remain one of the league's premier fantasy assets -- even if his shooting performances have not been very high. Los Angeles will play on the road Tuesday at Chicago.
James had 39 points (13-23 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 9-11 FT), 16 assists, 12 rebounds, four steals, and one block in 43 minutes during Friday's 119-110 victory over the Mavericks.
James turned back the clock Friday, putting up his best performance in quite some time. Perhaps the challenge from Luka Doncic was enough to spur him into action, but whatever it was, the result was spectacular. James took over down the stretch and through the overtime period, helping the Lakers to their fourth straight victory. He certainly appears more engaged on both ends of the floor, although, owners shouldn't expect numbers like this every night. James is currently the eighth-ranked player in 9-category leagues and h should continue to flirt with first-round value moving forward.
James registered 20 points (7-14 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 12 assists, eight rebounds and a steal across 35 minutes in Sunday's 120-101 win over the Hornets.
James experienced something rare in the first quarter of Sunday's game - he didn't score. Naturally, he picked things right up to get to 20 points in the second half, but James' early stat lines indicate a new normal for the King with Anthony Davis in the fold. His role as a facilitator for the offense is now paramount over his scoring ability. His 30 assists in the first three games are clear evidence of this trend. For fantasy purposes, it's mostly irrelevant unless you're in a roto league and you targeted James as a scoring beast. Instead, he may end up as one of your top dime-droppers.
James provided 32 points (12-22 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 7-8 FT), 10 assists, seven rebounds and a steal in 30 minutes Friday against the Jazz.
James narrowly missed a triple-double Friday, finishing a much better offensive showing than Tuesday's season opener. At this point, everything is known about James from a fantasy standpoint. Barring any injuries, he has the capacity to consistently affect the game in every single way and will be amongst the league's most efficient players. Through two games, James' averaging 25.0 points, 9.0 assists, 8.5 rebounds and 1.0 steal in 33.5 minutes.
James scored 18 points (7-19 FG, 1-5 3PT, 3-4 FT), grabbed nine rebounds and dished out eight assists during the Lakers' 102-112 loss to the Clippers on Tuesday. He also added one block and one steal.
James came just two dimes and one board short of a triple-double and if the season opener was an indicator of things to come, then he is going to assume the point-guard duties almost on a full-time basis. He might not be the scoring threat he once was, but James should remain as a quality fantasy asset going forward due to his ability to produce at high level on several statistics at the same time.
Coach Frank Vogel said James (rest) will not play in Friday's preseason finale against the Warriors, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports.
James is just getting some maintenance ahead of the regular-season opener -- which is set for Tuesday against the Clippers -- after playing 25 minutes in Wednesday's exhibition, finishing with 18 points, 11 assists, four rebounds and one steal.
James finished with 18 points (6-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 11 assists, four rebounds, and one steal in 25 minutes during Wednesday's 126-93 preseason victory over the Warriors.
James was on another level Wednesday, toying with the Warriors in the comfortable victory. The 11 assists were a game-high and there is a very realistic chance James leads the league in that category this season. He also shot 5-of-6 from the charity stripe, an area of his game that has let him down of late. If he can get that facet turned around, James could certainly be looked at as a top-10 player once again.

No surprise here, as the Lakers will do everything they can to limit the strain on James, who's entering his 17th NBA season. The question is whether the load management plan will carry over to the regular season. The Lakers would likely prefer to limit James' minutes and perhaps rest him periodically, but history suggests that's not an easy plan to execute -- particularly in what looks to be a loaded Western Conference. Last season, James averaged a career-low 35.2 minutes per game, but the top-heavy Lakers may not be able to afford to let that number slip much lower.
The Lakers intend to install James as their starting point guard heading into the 2019-20 season, league sources tell Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.
James manned point guard in his early years with the Cavaliers and has operated as a de facto top ball handler/point-forward throughout his time in the NBA, so the position won't necessarily be a completely unfamiliar transition for the four-time MVP. That being said, the physical demands of the position -- particularly on the defensive end when he matches up with smaller, quicker point guards -- could prove burdensome for James, who will turn 35 in December and played a career-low 55 games in 2018-19 due to a groin injury. James has since made a full recovery and will enter training camp with no restrictions as he looks to establish rapport with a retooled roster that now includes a pair of multi-time All-Stars in the frontcourt in Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins. James' move from forward to point guard should also open up spots in the starting five for Kyle Kuzma and newcomer Danny Green on the wing, while the newly re-signed Rajon Rondo settles into a backup role. Assuming James ends up seeing a significant spike in minutes at point guard for the duration of the upcoming campaign, he could have a legitimate chance at surpassing the career-high 9.1 assists per game he averaged during his final season with Cleveland in 2017-18.
James (groin) will miss the remaining six games of the season, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports.
The decision, as relayed by Magic Johnson was made in order to allow James to fully rehab from the groin injury he suffered in late December. It's not entirely surprising considering the Lakers have firmly been eliminated from playoff contention and only have six remaining games. Look for Moritz Wagner, Mike Muscala and newly-signed Jemerrio Jones to fill the void caused by James' absence.
James ended with 27 points (11-19 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine assists, and three rebounds in 32 minutes during Friday's 129-115 victory over the Hornets.
James returned to action Friday after missing the previous game due to rest. This is going to be the story for the remainder of the season as the Lakers give their young players additional playing time. Whenever James is on the floor he is going to put up big numbers which makes him a hard player to drop. The Lakers have four games next week including a back-to-back set to end the week, meaning James will likely miss at least one game.
James (rest) is available and will start Friday against the Hornets, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports.
As expected, James will take the court Friday night. Mike Muscala (ankle) has also been given the green light to return.
James (rest) is probable for Friday's game against the Hornets, Mike Bresnahan of Spectrum SportsNet reports.
James was held out of Wednesday's clash due to rest purposes, but the superstar should be back in action Friday. He's been on a tear over his last five matchups, averaging 27.8 points, 10.6 assists and 7.4 boards.
James will sit out Wednesday's contest against the Jazz.
With the Lakers on the second half of a back-to-back set, James will opt to rest up. In his place, Kyle Kuzma and Mo Wagner are candidates to see expanded roles.
James (knee) registered 23 points (11-20 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 0-2 FT), 14 assists, seven rebounds and one steal across 34 minutes in the Lakers' 124-106 win over the Wizards on Tuesday.
James had been listed on the injury report for what appears to simply have been precautionary reasons, but he offered another signature stat line by the time the night was said and done. The future Hall of Famer's minutes weren't capped in any appreciable sense, either, as they checked in second on the starting five to the 39 logged by Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and fell in line with the mid-30s allotment he's been seeing for most of March. James has now generated a double-double at minimum in three straight games and is averaging 29.2 points (on 50.0 percent shooting), 9.8 assists and 8.0 rebounds across 35.2 minutes across 11 games during the month.
