Description: Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith knocked down seven 3-pointers during Friday's victory versus Charlotte.
Insight: All seven of his made shots were 3-pointers, and he finished with 21 points. Smith has fit in nicely with Cleveland, as he also had four assists, four rebounds, and just one turnover.
 
1/19/2015 10:01:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith hit six 3-pointers versus the Bulls on Monday.
Insight: Smith scored 20 points, going 7-of-11 from the field. He was 6-for-9 from the 3-point line. Smith has been up-and-down since joining the Cavaliers. He has three games of 20 points or more while also having three games with under 10 points.
 
1/14/2015 9:52:00 AM
Description: Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith started and scored 29 points during Tuesday's loss to the Suns.
Insight: He has now scored at least 27 points in two of his three games with Cleveland. He hit eight 3-pointers and also had four steals. Smith is giving Cleveland no choice but to keep his minutes up.
 
1/13/2015 8:30:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith will start again on Tuesday with Mike Miller coming off the bench.
Insight: Smith was expected to head to the bench when LeBron James returned, but that will not be the case on Tuesday. Smith owners won't complain about that because he should see a boost in fantasy value playing alongside James.
 
1/12/2015 9:38:00 AM
Description: Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith played very well during his first game with Cleveland, but couldn't match the effort in Game No. 2.
Insight: He went for a team-hgh 27 points Friday, but shot just 2-of-10 for four points Sunday. That's the inconsistency that makes Smith a tough start for fantasy owners and it will be worse when LeBron James returns to the lineup.
 
1/10/2015 9:53:00 AM
Description: Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith played very well during his first game with Cleveland.
Insight: He went 11-of-23 from the field, 2-of-2 from the line, and 3-of-8 from deep for a team-hgh 27 points. He also had five boards, one assist, one steal, and three turnovers in 42 minutes of action. Once LeBron James returns, Smith's playing time should go down.
 
1/7/2015 4:57:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith will be active for Wednesday's game versus the Rockets.
Insight: The trade is official, so Smith will be able to make his Cleveland debut. Smith will receive about the same amount of minutes Dion Waiters was in Cleveland, but Smith actually has a better chance to be productive because he shoots better from long range.
 
1/5/2015 10:46:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard J.R. Smith has been traded to the Cavaliers in a three-team deal.
Insight: The Knicks didn't get any helpful pieces back but did make salary space by dealing Smith and Iman Shumpert. The players the Knicks did get in the trade were Alex Kirk and Lou Amundson from Cleveland and Lance Thomas from Oklahoma City.
 
1/4/2015 10:43:00 AM
Description: Knicks guard J.R. Smith could be in for a nice offensive surge if he can stay healthy.
Insight: With no Carmelo Anthony, someone had to step up and Smith is an obvious choice along with Tim Hardaway Jr.. Smith played 36 minutes and posted 22 points Friday, taking 20 shots.
 
1/2/2015 10:38:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard J.R. Smith was the Knicks leading score with 22 points against the Pistons.
Insight: With no Carmelo Anthony, someone had to step up, so it was Smith. He took a team-high 20 shots and scored 22 points with five assists, three rebounds and three steals. Anthony may miss a lot of games in the second half, so Smith is a worthy addition.
 
12/25/2014 11:02:00 AM
Description: Knicks guard J.R. Smith is questionable for Thursday's game against Washington due to a partially torn left plantar fascia.
Insight: He'll be a game-time decision. Tim Hardaway Jr. figures to see around 35 minutes if Smith doesn't and is a viable fantasy option.
 
12/25/2014 12:37:00 AM
Description: Knicks guard J.R. Smith was downgraded to out for Thursday's game against Washington due to a partially torn left plantar fascia.
Insight: He was a game-time decision, but in the end it was a no-go.Tim Hardaway Jr. figures to see around 35 minutes and is a viable fantasy option.
 
12/18/2014 11:42:00 AM
Description: Knicks guard J.R. Smith is expected to miss Thursday's game against Chicago due to a partially torn left plantar fascia.
Insight: It's about his pain tolerance and therefore each day is different, but he's missed the past four games so the level must be pretty high. Tim Hardaway Jr. figures to see around 35 minutes and is a viable fantasy option.
 
12/16/2014 12:17:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard J.R. Smith is questionable for Tuesday's game against Dallas due to a partially torn left plantar fascia.
Insight: Smith didn't practice Monday, so it's likely on the doubtful side of questionable. It's about his pain tolerance and therefore each day is different. he's missed the past three games.
 
12/12/2014 6:13:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard J.R. Smith will not play Friday night.

12/12/2014 10:52:00 AM
Description: Head coach Derek Fisher thinks Knicks guard J.R. Smith has a better chance to play Friday than Carmelo Anthony, according to Boston Globe beat writer Hary Washburn.

12/10/2014 7:18:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard J.R. Smith will not play Wednesday with a sore heel.

12/4/2014 1:18:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard J.R. Smith (flu-like symptoms) did not play on Tuesday, but is probable for Thursday's game against Cleveland.
Insight: Smith's return will take a big bite out of Tim Hardaway Jr.'s fantasy value, however, Smith is still too inconsistent to start on an every day basis.
 
12/2/2014 5:55:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard J.R. Smith (flu-like symptoms) will not play on Tuesday.
Insight: No surprise here, as Smith was doubtful heading into the night. Iman Shumpert and Tim Hardaway Jr. will see increased minutes.

Description: Knicks guard J.R. Smith has been downgraded to doubtful for Tuesday's game against Brooklyn after being sent home from Monday's practice due to his illness.
