News: Marion is expected to be removed from the starting lineup Wednesday, the News Herald's Bob Finnan reports.
Impact: While Marion still brings solid defense and leadership to the Cavs, his line of 5.5 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game this season is not very useful in fantasy, and he may be even less productive off the bench. Mike Miller is expected to start at shooting guard Wednesday.
News: Miller is expected to enter the starting lineup Wednesday, the News Herald's Bob Finnan reports.
Impact: Shawn Marion had been starting out of place at shooting guard, and coach David Blatt will opt to go with a more traditional option at the position in Miller. While this could mean a slight bump for Miller's value, he has played very sparingly this season, and will likely see much less run than a typical starter.
News: Miller worked with the starters during Tuesday's practice, Chris Haynes of CSN reports.
Impact: While coach David Blatt emphasized that he is yet to name a starting shooting guard for Wednesday's game, it appears as though Miller is in contention for the spot. Dion Waiters began as the season as the starter, but Blatt opted to switch to Shawn Marion, who's started the last 10 contests. Neither player has been particularly effective, and the Cavs' bench has been especially disappointing, so Blatt may look to tweak the lineup in an effort to find the right balance.
News: James scored 29 points, including 16 in the first quarter, and the Cleveland Cavaliers broke a four-game losing streak with a 106-74 win over the Orlando Magic on Monday night.
Impact: After bluntly assessing his own play at Monday's shootaround, saying, "I stink," James took control early and sparked his team to a much-needed comfortable win. After averaging 18.5 points and shooting 41 percent from the field in the losing streak, James was 9 for 17 from the field Monday and tied a season-high with 11 assists while not playing the fourth quarter.
