LeBron James will play against Denver after missing the team's morning shootaround because of a cold.

James told reporters an hour before tipoff Monday that "I've been better," but "I'm walking." He says the cold has been bothering him for a couple of days.

The Cavaliers are seeking their fifth straight victory.

James was picked as the Eastern Conference Player of the Week after averaging 35.0 points and shooting 59 percent in three games. It's the league-record 46th time he has won the award.
