INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- The challenge for Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue in his first full season at the helm isnt just how to direct LeBron James when hes on the court but also figuring out a way to keep the 14-year veteran off it.As Cavs training camp opens this week, Lue said maintaining James, 31, for the long haul is a priority.Ive looked at the schedule, Lue said Wednesday. Just seeing what makes sense and whats smart when playing four-in-five type of nights. Cant run our guys into the ground. We have to be smart, understand we have to take care of our bodies and take care of our key guys. Make sure that when we get to the playoffs were ready to go.The Cavs schedule actually doesnt include any four-games-in-five-nights scenarios as Lue mentioned, but it features plenty of three-in-four obligations as well as two five-in-seven stretches: one from Dec. 20-26 and another from April 4-10, the latter of which will assuredly include rest dates for James as Cleveland prepares for the postseason.James played a career-low 35.6 minutes per game last season, upping that workload in the playoffs to 39.1 minutes per game as he made his sixth straight trip to the Finals en route to winning the championship. This came a year after he took a two-week sabbatical in the middle of the regular season to rest his body and came back looking noticeably refreshed.Considering the way James taking a step back in the regular season the past two years has seemingly allowed him to take two steps forward in the postseason, the four-time MVP was asked whether he has adjusted how he approaches the 82-game grind.I try to make myself available for my teammates every night, and I think Ive had some pretty good coaches over the last few years, with Erik Spoelstra my last couple years there [in Miami] and now Coach Lue has done a great job of just trying to help me take care of my body, James said, because Im very stubborn when it comes to wanting to play.Perhaps saying more through omission, James skipped over David Blatt -- fired at midseason last year and now guiding a team in Turkey -- as he rattled off his recent coaches.[My coaches] also know Ive put a lot of miles on my body over the last six years from going to the Finals every single year, so, health and longevity for our team is very important, James continued. He said its key for the entire staff to keep a close eye on it.The Cavs training staff uses biometrics to monitor its players throughout the season, categorizing each players body as being in the green, yellow or red zone at any given point based on a combination of minutes played, activity on the court, workout, stress, etc. When a player enters the red zone, Lue is advised to sit him out.So it wont be just James whom Lue will keep on a short leash at times.My thing is just making sure guys are healthy, continue to limit LeBrons minutes, and he was at an all-time low last year, Lue said. Watch Kyrie [Irvings] minutes because we know were playing for something big. We know when we get to the playoffs its going to require a lot of minutes, so with those guys and with Kevin [Love], just have to watch guys getting to the red zone.I talked about the red zone last year, and our training staff does a great job of making sure they let me know who is getting close to that. For me, in the playoffs, health is more important than anything. As long as we can get to the playoffs healthy, I will be very excited about that.James went through a personal boot camp last September, practicing three times a day before training camp to try to ready himself. He followed that up by declaring he intended to play all 82 games for the first time in his career. He ended up playing 76 but vowed Wednesday he could have played the full slate.Does he have a game total in mind for this regular season, considering his goal is to reach a seventh straight Finals at the conclusion of it?For me its a mindset, and its getting my body in 82-game fashion, James said. Will I play them all? Hopefully, but if not then ... For me, for my mental [state] to say I can go out and play all 82 because my body feels that good. Last year I talked about it and I couldve done it. So I just have the same mind frame as I had last year. Wayne Ellington Jersey . PAUL, Minn. Hassan Whiteside Jersey .Y. -- Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone has drawn on his Syracuse connections once again by hiring Rob Moore to take over as receivers coach. . "Trying to breathe," he said with a grin. Bernier stopped 42 of 43 shots on Monday night, including all 22 in a hectic middle frame, his heroic performance propelling the Leafs toward an undue point in their final game before the Christmas break. James Johnson Jersey . The 18-year-old American had five birdies in her bogey-free round for a 17-under total of 196. Lee held the overnight lead but mixed three birdies with two bogeys for a 70. Udonis Haslem Jersey . The Swede became the first golfer to win the PGA Tours FedEx Cup and European Tours Race to Dubai in the same season. "It is still taking a little time to sink in what Ive achieved this week as was the case when I won the FedEx Cup but then it just kept getting better and better as the days went on and I am sure this will be the same," he said. RIO DE JANEIRO -- More cuts will be made to services for athletes at the Paralympics next month unless additional funding is rapidly secured for the cash-strapped games in Rio de Janeiro, officials said Monday.Crisis talks were held Monday by International Paralympic Committee President Philip Craven with the Brazilian government and Rios mayor in a late attempt to preserve the quality of the games in recession-battered Brazil.The IPC has warned that countries might not be able to travel to Rio if they do not receive grants that should have been paid last month. An effort is underway to distribute $7 million in overdue grants to help nations get to Brazil for the Sept. 7-18 event.Craven said an injunction prevents new public funding going toward the Paralympics unless the Rio 2016 organizing committee opens up its books. He said Mayor Eduardo Paes was preepared to deliver 150 million reals ($47 million) to cover costs and to ensure the success of the games.ddddddddddddPaes says the money is vital for the games, which he says have failed to attract sponsors and sell tickets.Clearly, the simplest and easiest way around this is for the Rio 2016 organizing committee to be open and transparent with its financial records in order to allow this additional funding to come in.Craven described the situation as pretty precarious, but doesnt believe any sports will be cut from the Paralympic program.If no extra funding is available then the organizing committee will have to implement further cuts to the Paralympic Games on top of the cuts we have already made alongside the IOC and Olympics.
