Cavaliers guard JR Smith out 12-14 weeks after thumb surgery

Cavaliers guard JR Smith out 12-14 weeks after thumb surgery

According to ESPN, Cavs shooting guard J.R. Smith will miss at least 4-6 weeks with an broken thumb injury.

The Cavs said treatment and a return-to-play timeline will be established following the surgery. Lebron James had 29 points, nine rebounds and six assists. Milwaukee coach Jason Kidd began, "they put a lot of pressure on the defense tonight and we understand why they're the best team in the league".

It was their second loss to the defending champions in as many days after they went down in overtime at home on Tuesday (Wednesday AEDT).

"He knows his body better than anyone", Lue said. Thankfully for the Cavs, James also played 13 less minutes Wednesday. You can see it not only in their words, but their actions. DeAndre Liggins should provide spontaneous DFS value depending on the matchup.

They climbed the system together until this year, when Luis Alejandro was traded to the Diamondbacks midseason for Brad Ziegler. After updates on MLB .com, Giolito, Lopez, and Dunning become the #2, #4, and #10 prospects for the Sox respectively.


Giannis Antetokounmpo had a team-high 28 points with five assists and five boards in defeat.

The 31-year-old James played 47 grueling minutes on the road, yet somehow was the quickest and most explosive player on the court in the rematch. Irving finished with 35 minutes played, James with just 34. We were able to load to the basketball to keep him out of transition.

It's all or nothing, as we saw last week, when Lue chose to rest James and the rest of the Big Three for the Cavs' road game in Memphis.

In receiving his ring, Dellavedova becomes just the fifth Australian player to win a championship ring behind Luc Longley, Andrew Bogut, Patty Mills and Aron Baynes. "I loved playing here, so it was cool to come back".
