#NBATwitter Responds To JR Smith's Soup-Throwing Suspension

Smith will regain his starting spot after his suspension is over, Lue told reporters Thursday.

Smith is considered to be one of Cleveland's most talented perimeter players.

The Cavaliers' decision to suspend J.R. Smith for one game stems from an incident between Smith and assistant coach Damon Jones in which Smith threw a bowl of soup at Jones, ESPN's Brian Windhorst and Dave McMenamin report.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said Smith did not address the team over the latest drama for a team that has had no shortage of theater this season.

Smith attended Thursday's morning shootaround, but the team did not announce his suspension until two hours before tip-off. "He'll be ready for tomorrow and be ready to go on Saturday (against Denver)".

Nine civilians killed in Saudi-led air strike attacks in Yemen
The civil war has been devastating on the civilians, as thousands have been killed and millions more are in dire need of aid. United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley called out Russian Federation for vetoing a U.N.

JR Smith was drafted 18th overall in the 2004 NBA Draft by the New Orleans Hornets straight out of high school. The sad part is that Smith has been the definition of inconsistent this season, shooting under 40% from the field for the fourth time in his career.

Smith, the former Knick, is averaging 8.3 points per game in 29.3 minutes this season and now is mired in a 4-for-22 swoon from the field over his past three games.

Jones, a former Cleveland guard, has been with the Cavs as a coach since 2014 after working his way up from the franchise's G-League squad.

Rodney Hood will start in Smith's place against the Sixers.
