Associate head coach Larry Drew has been filling in for Lue.

Kevin Love returned from a one-game hiatus because of a concussion and struggled. However, the Mexico, Missouri native was in attendance for Friday night's 107-102 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans, though he was not calling the plays.

Our models project Love for a big night with 36.0 FanDuel points in 28.5 minutes for 4.8x value on Friday. He finished with 16 points and eight rebounds while shooting 6-of-19 from the field. That helped the Pelicans eat away at a pair of early eight-point leads, closing the period by outscoring the Cavs 20-12 and making it a 29-all deadlock.

No active player is within 600 games of James' record (James Harden entered play Friday with 257), but LeBron wouldn't bite when asked Friday if he thought it was a record that would never been broken. This game against the Cavs hasn't made their schedule any easier. He didn't return and the Cavs said he'd be re-evaluated Saturday. Clarkson scored 14 points in the second half.

"I think we missed makable shots".

According to Wojnarowski, the plan is to have Lue ease his way back into coaching during the team's upcoming four-game homestand, which gets started Friday against the Pelicans.

Since being acquired from the Sacramento Kings at the National Basketball Association trade deadline last month, Hill has appeared in 21 games for the Cavs, starting in each of them. James came in averaging 30.5 points, 10.0 rebounds and 10.1 assists in his previous 23 games.
