J.R. Smith Suffers Knee Contusion, Exits Sixers Game

While the Cleveland Cavaliers are enduring the absence of their starting backcourt, another unfortunate turn of event occurred in their game against the Philadelphia 76ers.

The team’s starting two-guard, for now, J.R. Smith suffered a knee contusion and is not expected to return to the contest. It should also be noted that Smith was suffering from a right hamstring injury in the preseason.
