Description: Heat forward LeBron James (rest) will not play Wednesday, the team announced via Twitter.
Insight: The Heat are locked into the No. 2 seed in the East and James will rest up for the postseason. With Dwyane Wade ailing for most of the season, James carried Miami with averages of 37.7 minutes, 27.1 points, 6.9 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 1.6 steals in 77 games. He increased his field-goal percentage for the seventh consecutive season.
 
4/14/2014 2:10:00 PM
Description: Heat forward LeBron James will sit out Monday's game against Washington.
Insight: This is simply a matter of resting for the playoffs. James (27.1 ppg, 6.9 rpg, 6.4 apg, 1.6 spg) is healthy, but the chances of catching Indiana in the standings for the top seed are small.
 
4/6/2014 4:00:00 PM
Description: Heat forward LeBron James netted 38 points Sunday in a win against the Knicks.
Insight: By doing so, he became the first player since Michael Jordan in 1996-97 to score 30 or more points against the Knicks four times in the same season. At this point, the MVP race between James and Kevin Durant is a dead heat.
 
4/2/2014 2:51:00 PM
Description: There was no trace of the back problem at the Wednesday morning shootaround and Heat small forward LeBron James should be ready to go Wednesday night.
Insight: Even at less than 100 percent James is a fantasy stud. He put up 32 points, seven rebounds and eight assists while dealing with a sore back on Monday. If he plays, he starts.
 
3/28/2014 10:06:00 PM
Description: With the Heat's three top guards out, forward LeBron James stepped up his passing game and had his first triple-double of the season Friday against the Pistons.
Insight: James had 17 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds in 30 minutes. Even without Dwyane Wade (Achilles), Ray Allen (virus) and Mario Chalmers (quad), Miami smoked Detroit by 32 points.
 
3/27/2014 11:27:00 AM
Description: LeBron James was called for a flagrant foul Wednesday against Roy Hibbert, but no additional fines or suspension is expected.
Insight: Fantasy owners should expect him to be in Friday's lineup against Detroit.
 
3/24/2014 10:27:00 PM
Description: LeBron James scored the game-winning layup Monday against Portland.
Insight: The Heat forward finished with a game-high 32 points. He was able to offset his high turnover total (five) by collecting six rebounds, five assists and four steals. Overall, James has averaged 28 ppg since the All-Star break.

Insight: He's cooled off a bit since February (30.8 ppg in nine games) but it's still LeBron we're talking about. Even on his worst nights, James can do what few others can. Make sure he's in your lineup.
 
3/21/2014 11:00:00 AM
Description: Miami forward LeBron James sat out Wednesday's game due to back spasms, but is probable for Friday's game against Memphis.
Insight: He was listed as having back spasms, though we suspect it's just a maintenance day for the 29-year-old. Miami lost the game to Boston, so we don't expect a repeat here.

Description: Miami forward LeBron James is sitting out Wednesday's game against the Celtics. SOURCE: Heat on Twitter
Insight: He's listed as having back spasms, though we suspect it's just a maintenance day for the 29-year-old. Michael Beasley (8.2 ppg) will start in his place.
 
Hot3/18/2014 10:03:00 PM
Description: Heat forward LeBron James tossed in 14-of-19 shots, including 6-of-8 from 3-point range, and 9-of-13 free throws for 43 points with six rebounds, four assists, three blocks, two steals and zero turnovers in 42 minutes Tuesday against the Cavaliers.
Insight: James had scored "just" 20.7 ppg on .455 shooting since his 61-point game on March 3, which was not coincidentally the last time Dwyane Wade sat out. Wade was absent Tuesday, giving James free reign of the offense again.

Insight: James has been playing with a protective mask since he broke his nose on Feb. 20. He scored a career-high 61 points in 41 minutes Monday and admitted he dealt with fatigue in Tuesday's loss at Houston. James scored 22 points Tuesday and has averaged 35.3 points on 62.3 percent shooting his last eight games.

3/1/2014 10:42:00 PM
Description: LeBron James wasn't allowed to wear his Batman mask on Saturday but that didn't stop him from scoring 20 points on 8-for-12 shooting.
Insight: James needed one more rebound and three more assists for a triple-double. He probably would have gotten there if he had played the fourth quarter. James has averaged 25.5 ppg since returning from a broken nose.
 
Hot2/27/2014 11:08:00 PM
Description: Heat forward LeBron James' mask didn't give the four-time MVP much of a problem, as he had 31 points, four rebounds and four assists over 37 minutes Thursday against the Knicks.
Insight: James broke his nose last Thursday against the Thunder and missed Sunday's game. The injury didn't prevent him from scoring 30+ points for the fifth time in his last six games.
 
Hot2/27/2014 7:23:00 PM
Description: Heat forward LeBron James (broken nose) will start Thursday against the Knicks, according to Ethan J. Skolnick of Bleacher Report.
Insight: James (26.9 ppg, 7.1 rpg, 6.5 apg,) suffered the injury last Thursday against the Thunder, had his nose repaired Friday and missed Sunday's game. He has two masks, one he'll start with and a replacement in case the first gets too uncomfortable. He has averaged 37 points, 9.5 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 3.3 steals and 2.8 threes over his last four games and obviously should be in all fantasy lineups.

Insight: James (26.9 ppg, 6.5 apg, 7.1 rpg) suffered the injury Thursday against the Thunder and had his nose repaired Friday. The Heat don't play again until Thursday so holding out James allows him to get a full week of rest. James has averaged 37 points, 9.5 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 3.3 steals and 2.8 threes over his last four games.
 
2/21/2014 6:58:00 PM

Insight: James (26.9 ppg, 6.5 apg, 7.1 rpg) will have to be fitted for a protective mask. He passed his concussion test, which is obviously a good sign. Michael Beasley started at small forward the last time James was out with an injury.
