Cavs forward LeBron James will not be playing tonight due to left knee soreness. He will be replaced in the starting lineup by Matthew Dellavedova.

James turned 30 today and is in his 12th NBA season. A large amount of minutes played this season has contributed to his soreness.

LeBron’s sore knee also had him sitting out against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Dec. 11.

The Cavs are 18-12 and face the Atlanta Hawks in Georgia tonight. Keep it to FOX 8 News and for complete highlights.
