The Cavs are in a wait-and-see mode on J.R. Smith, but there certainly was a level of concern leaving the arena Monday night. Smith couldn’t really pinpoint when the injury occurred, but one source said he grimaced when he went to the bench with two fouls in the first quarter. He pivoted to sit down and felt the pain in the knee for the first time.
The Sixers training staff checked him out and thought the knee was structurally sound, believing it’s more of a bone bruise. But the Cavs believe Smith has a high pain tolerance and he was in some pain Monday. Hence, the concern. The team will do an MRI on Tuesday if the knee is still sore, coach David Blatt said.
