LeBron James    F  Cavaliers

 

 

LeBron James may have been ill during the Cavs' Game 3 loss to the Celtics, according to teammate Richard Jefferson. LeBron played poorly during Game 3 and he made no excuses afterward, saying that he simply "didn't have it." His teammate Jefferson, however, said that Deron Williams missed shootaround that day due to illness, and it may have also affected LBJ. He posted 34 points, six assists, five rebounds, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes during Game 4 on Tuesday, despite battling foul trouble, and it's safe to assume that any illness is behind him.

Deron Williams    G  Cavaliers

 

 

Deron Williams (illness) played 18 minutes in Tuesday's Game 4 win vs. the Celtics, scoring two points on 1-of-2 shooting with one rebound, one assist and one steal. D-Will has been a disappointment in the postseason, but the Cavs don't really have another option because they don't trust rookie Kay Felder. Kyrie Irving did tweak his ankle in Tuesday's win, but he's not expected to miss any time. Expect Williams to play his normal role with minutes in the teens going forward.

Kevin Love    F/C  Cavaliers

 

 

Kevin Love grabbed a playoff career-high 17 rebounds to go with 17 points, five assists, one steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers in Tuesday's Game 4 win over Boston. He finished 6-of-13 from the field and is quickly gaining a reputation for his incredible full-court outlet passes (link below). He may even be the best quarterback in Cleveland right now. All kidding aside, Love has been dominant in this series with averages of 24.5 points, 12.8 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.3 blocks, and his play on the defensive end has also been solid. The big question is whether or not he can carry this momentum into the NBA Finals.

LeBron James    F  Cavaliers

 

 

LeBron James bounced back with 34 points on 15-of-27 shooting in Tuesday's Game 4 win over Boston, adding six assists, five rebounds, one steal, one block and one triple in 38 minutes. After an 11-point dud in Game 3 on 4-of-13 shooting, LeBron got off to another tough start with four fouls in the first half -- he was forced to sit the final seven minutes of the second quarter. However, he came alive after the break with 24 of his 34 points, helping the Cavaliers outscore the Celtics 65-42 in the second half. J.R. Smith added five points, three assists, one rebound, two steals and one triple for the Cavaliers, while Tristan Thompson notched seven points with seven rebounds and one block.

Kyrie Irving    G  Cavaliers

 

 

Kyrie Irving went off for a playoff career-high 42 points in Tuesday's 112-99 Game 4 win, giving his team a 3-1 series lead. With LeBron James in foul trouble for most of the night, Irving helped the Cavaliers erase a 16-point deficit and dropped 21 of his 42 points in the third quarter. The entire arena went silent when Irving rolled his left ankle near the end of the third quarter, but he was able to stay in and said after the game that he felt "great." Maybe he sits out of Wednesday's practice to be safe, but expect him to be ready for Game 5 on Thursday in Boston as the Cavs look to close out this series. You can check out the incident in the link below.

Deron Williams    G  Cavaliers

 

 

Deron Williams (illness) is a go for Tuesday's Game 4 against the Celtics. Williams sat out shootaround, but he was never expected to miss tonight's game. He should continue to flirt with minutes in the lower-teens, which doesn't mean much in fantasy hoops.

Deron Williams    G  Cavaliers

 

 

Deron Williams (illness) missed shootaround on Tuesday morning but is expected to play in Game 4 vs. Boston Tuesday night. Williams' performance has been mostly disappointing this postseason. Over the Cavs last seven games, he is averaging 3.4 points, 3.6 assists and 1.6 rebounds in 14.8 minutes, while shooting 37.0 percent from the floor and 22.2 percent from downtown. In the first three games of the ECF, Williams is just 2-of-11 from the field. The Cavs have been able to cruise through the East with little help from their bench but will need D-Will and company to step up if they hope to take home another title.
