Cavaliers' LeBron James: Played through hand injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James told reporters following Friday's series clinching defeat to the Warriors that he played the previous three games with a hand injury, Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com reports.

The injury was reportedly sustained after James punched a black board in the locker room following the Cavaliers' Game 1 loss. He subsequently underwent two MRIs and had been wearing a soft cast behind closed doors. The All Star kept the issue quiet in order to keep the Warriors from knowing. The injury did not do much to slow him down, as he finished the series with averages of 34.0 points, 8.5 boards, 10.0 assists, 1.3 steals, 1.0 blocks, and 1.5 triples across 44.7 minutes per game. He will now have all offseason to recover from a one of the heaviest workloads a player has seen during the postseason grind in recent memory.

Cavaliers' Larry Nance: Provides spark off the bench in losing effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nance contributed seven points (3-7 FG, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 23 minutes during Friday's 108-85 loss to Golden State in Game Four of the NBA Finals.

Nance came off the bench, as has been the norm throughout the playoffs, and was able to provide some nice energy despite his obvious limitations. Nance's fantasy ceiling is capped by his inability to step out beyond about 12 feet but he does provide some solid wing defense when called upon. Where he is next season is unsure and his landing spot will ultimately determine his fantasy value.

Cavaliers' Rodney Hood: Plays well once again in expanded role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hood tallied 10 points (4-14 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 26 minutes during Friday's 108-85 loss to Golden State.

Hood once again saw some additional playing time as the Cavaliers ran with a number of options in the Game Four loss. He was clearly the third best player on the court for the Cavaliers and demonstrated what he is capable of with playing time. The Cavaliers roster is a mystery heading into next season but if LeBron James decides to leave town, others could follow, leaving Hood an opportunity to take on more of a scoring role on a lottery team.

Cavaliers' Kevin Love: Disappointing in Game 4 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love finished with just 13 points (4-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and one steal in 27 minutes during Friday's 108-85 loss in Game Four of the NBA Finals against the Warriors.

Love saved his worst game of the Finals for last as the Cavaliers fell in comprehensive fashion to the Warriors. Love had himself a strong finals showing prior to this game and should head into next season with a lot of confidence. LeBron James may or may not be back in Cleveland and if he does indeed decide to take his talents elsewhere, Love could find himself thrust into the role of alpha on what could be a lottery team. He has played this role before with great success and could be in line for a fantasy leap if this is the case. Stay tuned.

Cavaliers' LeBron James: Tired effort in Game Four loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James had 23 points (7-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 9-11 FT), eight assists, seven rebounds and one steal in 40 minutes during Friday's 108-85 loss to the Warriors.

James appeared tired Friday, not surprising after his outstanding playoff run. While he still managed to lead the team with 23 points, he was far from the player he had been across the first three games of the Finals. He ends the season on a disappointing note, revealing after the game that he had basically been playing the last three games with a broken hand. There is clearly nothing to worry about moving into next season other than where exactly he is going to be playing. His decision is going be closely followed over the next couple of months and will certainly be a major factor in a number of other players free-agency moves.
