LeBron James starting against Kings

CLEVELAND– After missing one game with a sprained wrist, LeBron James is back in the lineup.

About 45 minutes prior to Friday night’s game against the Sacramento Kings, the announcement was made in the locker room. James missed Wednesday’s last second win over the Portland Trailblazers as Kyrie Irving poured in 55 points, including the game-winning three point play in the final seconds.

David Blatt said James was still doubtful after taking part in the shoot around Friday morning, but left the possibility open about James playing Friday night.

"We’ll see how (his wrist) reacts to the activity (Friday morning)," Blatt said about 1:45 before tip off Friday.

The Cavs lost to the Kings by 19 points on Jan. 11, 103-84 while James sat out with a strained back.
