Kevin Love, J.R. Smith questionable for tonight vs. Heat
Tonight, the NBA’s defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers will face the Miami Heat inside Quicken Loans Arena at 7:30 pm. However, The Cavaliers could be without two key members of their starting rotation.
Jason Lloyd of The Akron Beacon Journal reports that Cavs forward Kevin Love, who is dealing with back spasms, has been listed as questionable for tonight’s match-up.
Kevin Love questionable tonight with back spasms. JR Smith also questionable with knee.

Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith has been listed as day-to-day since his knee injury in Monday night’s game against the Toronto Raptors inside The Air Canada Centre. X-rays and MRI results came back negative, but Smith’s status remains questionable for tonight’s game.
This could mean increased playing time for players like DeAndre Liggins and Chris “Birdzilla” Andersen. The Cavs will just have to keep a “next man up” mentality until their injuries heal.
