Cavaliers' J.R. Smith: Starting Friday's preseason finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith will enter the starting lineup for Friday's preseason finale against the Magic, Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

LeBron James continues to deal with a sore left ankle, so he'll get the night off on Friday. As a result, coach Tyronn Lue will push Dwyane Wade over to small forward, with Smith entering the top unit at shooting guard. Smith should see a temporary uptick in minutes, though he's already been confirmed to be opening the year in a bench role, so once James is back to full strength, look for Smith to operate as one of the first reserves off the bench.

Cavaliers' J.R. Smith: Will come off bench this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith will come off the bench this season with Dwyane Wade officially being named the starting shooting guard, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.

While Smith served as a primary starter through his three seasons in Cleveland, coming off the bench is nothing new for the 32-year-old. Smith made a living coming off the bench during his time in New York and even won the Sixth Man of the Year award with the team in 2013. While Smith heading to the bench limits the floor spacing of the Cavaliers' starting unit, the streaky jump shooter should help bolster the team's bench production for this coming season.

Cavaliers' J.R. Smith: Resting Sunday vs. Wizards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith will sit out Sunday's preseason matchup against the Wizards for rest, Dave McMenamin of ESPN reports.

The Cavaliers will hold out nine players on Sunday, with the majority just getting the night off for rest. Look for Smith to rejoin the lineup ahead of Tuesday's game against the Bulls. With Dwyane Wade (rest) and Iman Shumpert (foot) also out, look for Kyle Korver to pick up more minutes at shooting guard, while some guys like Jeff Green and Richard Jefferson could have to play out of position as well.

Cavaliers' J.R. Smith: Will start preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith will start Wednesday's preseason game against the Hawks, Cavs play-by-play announcer John Michael reports.

The Cavaliers are set to be without LeBron James (ankle) Wednesday, so both Dwyane Wade and J.R. Smith with start at shooting guard and small forward. It remains to be seen which player will ultimately start alongside James on the wing once he's healthy, so that should continue to be monitored over the rest of the preseason.

Cavaliers' J.R. Smith: Heats up from long distance in Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith supplied 25 points (9-11 FG, 7-8 3Pt, 0-1 FT), three rebounds, one assist and two blocks over 41 minutes during Monday's 129-120 loss to the Warriors in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

The sharpshooting veteran was lights out from behind the arc and wrapped up the postseason with a three-game hot streak from long distance. Smith went 17-for-27 (63 percent) from three-point range on his way to averaging 18.7 points in those contests. However, it was essentially a case of too little, too late, as Smith didn't take double-digit shot attempts in the entirety of the postseason until Game 3 of the Finals. Although the veteran's 8.6 points during the regular season were his lowest since the 2005-06 campaign -- and his 34.6 percent success rate from the field was a career low -- the 31-year-old is expected back next season after signing a four-year, $57 million contract with the Cavaliers before the 2016-17 campaign.
