Rodney Hood will replace the suspended J.R. Smith in the starting lineup Thursday vs. Philadelphia.
It is Kyle Korver bobblehead night, so the fans won’t get to see the narrative in full form, but they will get to see Hood’s first start. Cavs coach Tyronn Lue did say that “something happened after shootaround” that led to J.R.’s suspension and that Smith will be back in the starting lineup Saturday.
