When Cleveland hosts Houston on Tuesday, LeBron James will not be in uniform.
On Monday, Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said James will rest.
This will be the fourth game this season James sits for precaution. The Cavs are 1-2 without him.
The Cavaliers have not fared well with James out of the lineup. They are 1-2, but did demolish Dallas two weeks ago without James.
James also was also named the Eastern Conference's Player of the Week for last week. That's the 52nd time he has received that honor.
