Sports fans, welcome back for another dose of breaking news.

It’s time again for your daily round-up, so you’ll all know the score by now. If you don’t then there’s no reason to worry, simply watch the video above or scroll down for more.

We’ve got plenty on offer today so leave thoughts and comments in the box provided. We know, we’re too good to you.

LeBron to start

It’s safe to assume Cleveland Cavaliers fans, as well as plenty of neutral supporters, are hoping that LeBron James turns out for the Cavs during their opening NBA fixture against the Chicago Bulls.

Well, we’ve got good news as Cavs coach David Blatt has confirmed the king will be ‘absolutely ready’ come October 27, despite a shaky preseason that has seen him miss five games and reportedly take an anti-inflammatory shot in his back.

It’s said the man himself looks at last season as a missed opportunity - he won’t be looking for a repeat this time around, that’s for sure.

“I would say he will absolutely be ready for the season opener,” Blatt said.


Bryant's pre-season over

Next up, it’s likely that Kobe Bryant’s pre-season is over, with the Los Angeles Lakers ready to minimise the risk of him picking up a problem by waiting until the season proper before they give him court time again.

The superstar is heading into his 20th NBA campaign and coach Bryan Scott clearly doesn’t want to hamper his chances of getting going from the off.

Bills losses

In the NFL meanwhile, the Buffalo Bills have touched down in London at far from full strength.

Ian Rapoport claimed yesterday that both Kyle Williams and Percy Harvin had been left in the States, with wide receiver Sammy Watkins only having travelled with a damaged ankle.

The Bills take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 7 at Wembley, but will do well to cope with their losses.

Coleman suspension

Lastly, the Seattle Seahawks will reinstate Derrick Coleman at fullback as soon as his team-imposed suspension is over, Pete Carroll has confirmed.

Coleman was handed a ban last Thursday after being arrested in the wake of a two-car accident. He was released from jail on Friday without charge and will resume duties with the Seahawks imminently.
