Dec. 17 9:17 PM PT10:17 PM MT11:17 PM CT12:17 AM ET5:17 GMT13:17 10:17 PM MST12:17 AM EST9:17 UAE06:170:17 ET11:17 PM CTNaN:� - J.R. Smith scored four points Saturday on 1-of-6 shooting as the Cleveland Cavaliers topped the Utah Jazz 109-100. Smith pulled down three rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -4 in his 34:34 of playing time. He tacked on two steals. Smith went 1 of 2 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Smith is actually shooting the ball well at the moment, having gone 18 of 33 from beyond the arc in eight December games. The problem is he's not shooting all that often. Having reached double-figure points in only one of his last eight games, the veteran guard looks to be behind several other Cleveland players in terms of current fantasy significance.

He still carries risk, though it's becoming less of a concern.

Oct. 23 12:39 PM PT1:39 PM MT2:39 PM CT3:39 PM ET19:39 GMT3:39 12:39 PM MST2:39 PM EST23:39 UAE21:3915:39 ET2:39 PM CTNaN:� - Smith is back in the Cavs' starting lineup after Dwyane Wade volunteered to go to the bench, and is not on the injury report for Tuesday's game against Chicago after missing shootaround due to a back issue.
