James sat out the Cavs’ loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night with soreness in his left knee. Coach David Blatt said at the time that he did not believe the issue was serious and that the move was precautionary.
James officially was listed as questionable to face the Pelicans. He took part in team warm-ups prior the game.
Blatt also said he expected Kyrie Irving to play Friday night. The point guard collided with the Thunder’s Russell Westbrook in the first half Thursday but returned to the court. He was diagnosed with a knee contusion.
