Well, he was said to be a "game-time decision," and now, with game-time near, here's the decision: LeBron James will play tonight against the Phoenix Suns after missing the previous eight games with strains in his left knee and lower back.

The Cavs are currently sitting in their (probable) low point of season with a record at .500. They're also in the midst of a five-game losing streak. Earlier this morning, LeBron intimated that he was pushing himself to return quicker due to the Cavs' recent struggles, calling it:

"The most difficult thing I’ve ever been through.”

Before adding:

“I hated the fact we were playing some pretty decent ball when I went out and we’ve just dropped a lot of games when I was out. Hopefully if I can make it back tonight or very soon we can get back to our winning ways.”

When asked about LeBron's playing time, Coach Dave Blatt said that his star would be held to minutes in "the low 30s."
