LeBron James (rest) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Kings, the team announced.
James has never been one to go the "load management" route, so this was likely a case of the decision being taken out of his hands. And that's certainly understandable, as James has taken on an even heavier workload since Anthony Davis went down with an Achilles injury. Who fantasy managers should pick up is a tough call, given how much James impacts the entire rotation. Dennis Schroder should get plenty of shots Wednesday night, and Talen Horton-Tucker is another name to be mindful of. Kyle Kuzma, who sat out Tuesday's loss to the Suns with a right heel contusion, would be another must-play if he's cleared to return. Yesterday 2:25 am (EST)
