Breaking: J.R. Smith to miss 2nd straight game with ankle injury
The Cleveland Cavaliers played Sunday afternoon’s game against the Charlotte Hornets without guard J.R. Smith, who was dealing with an ankle injury. The Cavs defeated the Hornets 100-93 as Mike Dunleavy started in Smith’s place. However, Dunleavy had a very bad as well as ineffective game, and it seems as if he’s still finding his stroke and spots with the team.
Although he had a day off before the Cavs take on the Toronto Raptors, Smith is unable to go on Tuesday.
J.R. Smith will miss his second straight game with a sore right ankle, per Ty Lue. Richard Jefferson will start in his place

Instead of starting Mike Dunleavy, however, the Cavs will be starting Richard Jefferson.
