LeBron James OUT for Cavs game with Oklahoma City Thunder due to knee soreness

LeBron James will miss tonight's matchup with Oklahoma City

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Cleveland Cavaliers will be without LeBron James tonight against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Shawn Marion will likely slide over to the small forward spot. It will be interesting to see if Matthew Dellavedova, Dion Waiters, or even another Cavalier starts at shooting guard. Anytime your best player is hurt you are worried, but it's early in the season and James has no prior history of knee issues. Hopefully the Cavaliers can manage his minutes moving forward.

It's unclear how serious this injury is at the moment, but we will keep you updated at Fear the Sword. In the meantime, the Cavs are blessed to have two other stars they can lean on.
