Facebook Live Chat: Breaking down J.R Smith’s injury

Today’s chat covers J.R. Smith’s injury.

NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers at Philadelphia 76ers Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Over on our Facebook page, I talked about J.R. Smith’s injury, his now estimated 12-14 week return and how the Cavs could potentially react to it.

Smith, in case you missed it, was originally only supposed to be out 4-6 weeks per multiple reports. He had surgery Friday - which the Cavs announced was successful - and the team also announced that his return would be much later in the season than expected. Now, in a sense, it’s possible that Smith won’t be ready to return until a month before the playoffs begin.

For future news, the plan is for someone from Fear the Sword to break it down in video form over on our Facebook page. When we have a planned chat, we’ll announce it in Fear the Newsletter - which can subscribe to here - but sometimes they’ll happen in the spur of the moment. Almost always, they’ll be posted here for those who missed them.
