LeBron James missed the Cleveland Cavaliers' morning shootaround as he continues to recover from strep throat but will play in Monday night's home game against the Milwaukee Bucks, coach Tyronn Lue said.
The star forward did not play in the Cavs' 117-99 loss to the Chicago Bulls on Saturday night because of the illness.
James has sat out four games this season and the Cavaliers lost all of them.
James is averaging 25.7 points, 7.8 rebounds and 8.9 assists in 37.5 minutes per game this season.
Guard Kyle Korver (right knee soreness) will also play. He was listed as questionable after falling awkwardly on his right leg against the Bulls.
Lue also is dealing with a strep throat and is taking antibiotics.
The Cavs also announced that free agent point guard Deron Williams will sign with the team on Monday but might not play against the Bucks.
Williams, who played on Team USA with James and Kevin Love, averaged 13.1 points and 6.9 assists in 40 games for the Mavericks this season.
