Cavaliers F LeBron James Will Rest Again for Team's Season Finale

It looks like the Cleveland Cavaliers want to get reigning NBA Finals MVP LeBron James as much rest as possible heading into the playoffs. 

The team announced on Monday that James will rest for Wednesday's season finale against the Toronto Raptors. This, after James sat Monday's loss to Miami. 

Cleveland is pretty much giving up on the idea of being the No. 1 seed in the east, instead looking at giving their star players as much time off as possible. Kyrie Irving also rested in Monday's overtime loss. 

If you are indeed playing DFS for the final slate of regular season action on Wednesday, first ... We're sorry. Secondly, look for both Richard Jefferson and Kyle Korver to continue logging heavier than usual minutes. Jefferson scored zero points in 21 minutes on Monday with Korver tallying 18 points. The latter is obviously a better DFS option here.
