Analysis: The three games for which James has been rested this season all came on the back end of a back-to-back, so it certainly wouldn't come as a shock if it happened again this week.

The Cavs host Oklahoma City on Sunday, and James averaged 29 points and 11 assists against the Thunder last season.
Jan. 25 7:14 PM PT8:14 PM MT9:14 PM CT10:14 PM ET3:14 GMT11:14 8:14 PM MST10:14 PM EST7:14 UAE (+1)04:1422:14 ET9:14 PM CTNaN:� - James finished with 24 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists in Wednesday's overtime loss to the Kings, Cleveland's sixth defeat in eight games.

Jan. 14 7:59 AM PT8:59 AM MT9:59 AM CT10:59 AM ET15:59 GMT23:59 8:59 AM MST10:59 AM EST19:59 UAE16:5910:59 ET9:59 AM CTNaN:� - James matched a season low with 16 points Friday, but he equaled a season high with 15 assists as he attempted just 12 field goals, hitting six.

Jan. 6 7:32 PM PT8:32 PM MT9:32 PM CT10:32 PM ET3:32 GMT11:32 8:32 PM MST10:32 PM EST7:32 UAE (+1)04:3222:32 ET9:32 PM CTNaN:� - James scored 36 points, carrying Cleveland while Irving and Love had slow starts in their return to the lineup in a 116-108 victory over the Brooklyn Nets.

He was the only member of Cleveland's ''Big 3'' in uniform and finished with 31 points, eight rebounds and seven assists in 37 minutes in a 106-94 loss.
Analysis: James said there was never any question he would play. ''If I can walk, I can go,'' he said, ''unless coach tells me to sit down. My plan was to play.'' James and the Cavs are now set to embark on a season-high six-game road trip that concludes Jan. 16 with the Warriors.
Jan. 2 6:01 PM PT7:01 PM MT8:01 PM CT9:01 PM ET2:01 GMT10:01 7:01 PM MST9:01 PM EST6:01 UAE (+1)03:0121:01 ET8:01 PM CTNaN:� - James totaled 26 points, seven rebounds and six assists to lead a short-handed Cavaliers team to Monday's 90-82 win over New Orleans.

Dec. 9 6:56 PM PT7:56 PM MT8:56 PM CT9:56 PM ET2:56 GMT10:56 7:56 PM MST9:56 PM EST6:56 UAE (+1)03:5621:56 ET8:56 PM CTNaN:� - James scored 27 points Friday to move into ninth place on the NBA's career scoring list.

Analysis: James didn't need to the offensive focal point Wednesday so he contributed in other ways with six rebounds, seven assists and two blocks. He also made 10 of a season-high 14 free-throw attempts. Clearly, James isn't interested in monster scoring games or piling up triple-doubles, instead doing just enough to guarantee wins.
Dec. 5 7:09 PM PT8:09 PM MT9:09 PM CT10:09 PM ET3:09 GMT11:09 8:09 PM MST10:09 PM EST7:09 UAE (+1)04:0922:09 ET9:09 PM CTNaN:� - James had 34 points, eight rebounds and seven assists Monday to help the Cavs win in Toronto to end a three-game losing streak.

Dec. 3 8:18 AM PT9:18 AM MT10:18 AM CT11:18 AM ET16:18 GMT0:18 9:18 AM MST11:18 AM EST20:18 UAE17:1811:18 ET10:18 AM CTNaN:� - James had 27 points and 13 assists in the Cavs' 111-105 loss to the Bulls on Friday.

Nov. 23 6:25 PM PT7:25 PM MT8:25 PM CT9:25 PM ET2:25 GMT10:25 7:25 PM MST9:25 PM EST6:25 UAE (+1)03:2521:25 ET8:25 PM CTNaN:� - James recorded his 44th career triple-double with a season-high 31 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds while adding three steals Wednesday.
