The Cleveland Cavaliers suspended guard JR Smith for Thursday night’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers for detrimental conduct, the team announced.

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said “something happened after shootaround” Thursday that led to Smith’s one-game suspension. A team source told ESPN’s Dave McMenamin the suspension was from a team-related issue, nothing off the court. Smith was at shootaround Thursday.
