Tonight, the Cleveland Cavaliers will look to get back on track in Chicago, where they’ll face off against the Bulls in a nationally-televised event.

As most fans of the team are well-aware, the Cavs have been struggling with injuries this season. Not only that, several new faces have joined the team. With just nine games remaining in the regular season, head coach Tyronn Lue has his hands full with all of these issues.

Earlier this evening, coach Lue announced that Kyle Korver, who has been dealing with foot soreness, and Richard Jefferson, who missed yesterday’s shootaround due to knee tendinitis, would be held out of tonight’s game.

With Jefferson out of the lineup on the wings, look for J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert, who is making his return tonight after dealing with a spat of knee soreness, to see increased playing time.
