  • Justin James: Goes for 25 points off bench

    James delivered 25 points (10-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), a rebound, three assist and a steal across 28 minutes off the bench in Saturday's win over Santa Cruz.

    James led all bench players in minutes, points and assists, and he made a major impact in the box score. He was also extremely efficient from the field, missing just three of his 13 shots in an outing that couldn't have gone much better, considering this was just his second game with the Charge.

  • Justin James: Season concludes due to injury

    James will miss the remainder of the 2021-22 season due to an ankle injury.

    An ankle injury forced James to sit out the Charge's season-ending game against Motor City on Saturday. He averaged 19.8 points, 5.4 rebounds and 3.7 assists across 21 G League games.

  • Justin James: Nearly triple-doubles in start

    James logged 27 points (10-17 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-6 FT), nine rebounds and eight assists during Wednesday's 147-137 win over the Delaware Blue Coats.

    James was two assists and one rebound short of logging a triple-double across 37 minutes. The guard will continue to receive plenty of playing time if Malik Newman is inactive like he was Wednesday.

  • Justin James: Logs all-around stat line

    James logged 18 points (7-18 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and five assists across 42 minutes during Monday's loss to the Capital City Go-Go.

    James is averaging 22.3 points, 5.8 rebounds and 3.3 assists across 12 G League games this year. The 25-year-old's averages indicate how versatile his statistical output has been.

  • Justin James: Continues lackluster shooting

    James logged five points (1-14 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal across 31 minutes during Tuesday's 110-99 loss to Raptors 905.

    The Cleveland Charge have three consecutive losses, which is somewhat attributed to James' poor shooting during that span. He's averaged 14.7 points on a 24.5 percent field-goal rate.

  • Justin James: Bad shooting off bench

    James logged 15 points (4-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, three assists and one block across 27 minutes during Wednesday's 109-105 loss to the Long Island Nets.

    The Cleveland Charge started RJ Nembhard and Wes Iwundu instead of James. Despite averaging 22.3 points across six G League games this year, the backup logged that tally on an unimpressive 39.8 field goal percentage. James must improve his shooting to be considered a reliable starter again.

  • Justin James: Records 37 points

    James logged 37 points (11-30 FG, 4-15 3Pt, 6-6 FT), five assists, four rebounds, four steals and one block across 38 minutes during a 98-86 loss Saturday against the Maine Celtics.

    James is now up to 29.7 points per game across the Charge's last four games. He remains one of the G League's best scorers at the guard position.

  • Justin James: Scores 24 points

    James logged 24 points (8-19 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-8 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and one steal across 33 minutes Tuesday during a 103-94 win against the Windy City Bulls.

    James was the Charge's primary scorer during each of his last three G League games. He averaged 27.3 points across that three-game span. Malik Newman and Tre Scott could affect his scoring output, but James should be expected to remain the better scorer among those three.

  • Justin James: Records double-double

    James logged 31 points (11-19 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-8 FT), 11 rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block across 35 minutes during a 99-92 loss Saturday at Grand Rapids.

    James was the Charge's primary scorer and rebounder Saturday. His January 2022 G League stats -- 58 points and 16 rebounds across two games -- indicate that he needs to improve on three-point shooting. Across his last two games, James shot 18.2 percent from behind the arc.

  • Justin James: Scores 27 points

    James logged 27 points (11-26 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 3-5 FT), five rebounds, two steals and one assist across 31 minutes during Friday's loss to the Capital City Go-Go.

    James' 27 points were a team best. Despite not being re-signed by the Pelicans -- his previous NBA team -- or any other NBA franchise, he will remain valuable to an uninspired Charge group needing some consistent scoring. James has averaged 18.4 points across his last 15 G League games.

  • Justin James: Contract expires

    The Pelicans won't re-sign James after his 10-day contract expired Wednesday, Andrew Lopez of reports.

    James didn't make an appearance during his time with New Orleans. The third-year pro will likely head back to the G League, where he was averaging 17.8 points as a member of the Cleveland Charge.

  • Justin James: Signs on with New Orleans

    James signed a 10-day hardship deal with the Pelicans on Sunday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    James spent the past two seasons in Sacramento before being cut loose in August. After brief stints in training camp with Utah and Cleveland, he opened the season in the G League with the Cavaliers' affiliate, the Cleveland Charge. In 14 games in the G League, James averaged 17.8 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.7 minutes per contest. He'll provide the Pelicans with some depth on the wing in the short term with Nickeil Alexander-Walker in the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols, Kira Lewis (knee) out for the season and Didi Louzada serving a suspension.

  • Justin James: Well-rounded production in win

    James totaled 10 points (5-13 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 0-1 FT), four rebounds and an assist in 21 minutes during Tuesday's G League win over Iowa.

    James shot just 38.5 percent from the floor in Tuesday's win, but he scored in double figures for a third consecutive game. He's come off the bench in eight of his first 10 appearances of the season and has averaged 15.7 points and 4.8 rebounds in 27.5 minutes per game.

    James recorded 30 points (10-20 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds and three assists in 36 minutes during Wednesday's G League loss to the Mad Ants.

    James scored in double figures off the bench in Tuesday's matchup against Fort Wayne, and he took on a starting role in the second half of the back-to-back set Wednesday. Following his season-high scoring total Wednesday, James is now averaging 18.8 points and 5.5 rebounds in 29.7 minutes per game this year.

  • Justin James: Effective off bench

    James posted 14 points (4-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-4 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and a block in 29 minutes during Tuesday's G League loss to the Mad Ants.

    James has been a consistent contributor for the Charge early in the season, but Tuesday's performance marked the second time this season that he shot under 50 percent from the floor. Across the first five games of the year, James has averaged 16.6 points and 5.2 rebounds in 28.4 minutes per contest.

  • Justin James: Productive on scoreboard

    James compiled 19 points (8-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three assists, two rebounds and one steal in 25 minutes during Saturday's G League loss to the Cruise.

    James was one of two starters to not top 30 minutes for the Charge, but he shot 72.7 percent from the floor during the blowout loss to Motor City. The 24-year-old appeared in 36 games with the Kings last year and averaged 3.9 points in 8.6 minutes per contest.

    James signed a training camp contract with the Cavaliers on Wednesday, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports.

    James was let go by Sacramento in mid-August, but he'll join the Cavaliers with a week remaining until the regular season. If he's unable to land a spot on the final roster, the 24-year-old will likely begin the year in the G League.

  • Justin James: Hits free agency

    James was released by the Kings on Sunday, Jason Jones of The Athletic reports.

    James' salary with the Kings was set to be guaranteed for the season unless he was cut before Sunday's deadline. The 24-year-old played for the Kings over the last two seasons but only saw 7.6 minutes per game. In his final season with Sacramento, James averaged 3.9 points, 0.8 rebounds and 0.6 assists in 36 appearances. The guard will look to sign with a team in need of backcourt depth.
