LeBron James Picks Up Questionable Tag For Sunday

Los Angeles Lakers point guard/small forward LeBron James has been tagged as questionable to participate in Sundays contest versus the Atlanta Hawks due to right elbow soreness. James put together an impressive performance Friday against Miami despite the ailment and has not yet missed a game this year, so the designation could be precautionary. Fellow point guard Rajon Rondo has been listed as probable to play, and would likely see an increased workload should James be held out. No matter who mans the point for Los Angeles will have an advantageous matchup versus a Hawks defensive unit allowing the second-most DFS points per game to the opposition on a nightly basis.
