Smith scored 21 points (7-13 FG, 7-11 3Pt) and added four rebounds and four assists in 29 minutes against the Hornets Friday.

The 21 points - all on three-pointers - came on the night that Iman Shumpert (shoulder) returned to the lineup. It seems likely that the two ex-Knicks may be competing for a limited quantity of minutes, making Shumpert's return a potentially bad development for Smith's value. Smith has played very well since joining the Cavs, scoring at least 14 points in five of his last six games.

Smith has had some big 3-point games (20 long range shots in seven games) since joining the Cavaliers. His playing time could dip when Iman Shumpert (shoulder) returns, which is in the offing. Even when Shumpert gets back, Smith is a decent 3-pointer option.

Smith (back) started Friday in a win over the Clippers, and finished the game with eight points (4-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt), two rebounds, four assists and three steals in 30 minutes.

Kyrie Irving and LeBron James handled the offensive duties primarily for the Cavaliers on Friday, but Smith was good in catch-and-shoot situations. Smith is going to have some nights when he goes off for 20 points, and some when he only scores in the single digits. He's worth at least owning in most leagues, as he's averaging 14.8 points per game in five appearances with the Cavs.

Smith (back) is in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Clippers.

Smith was a game-time call due to a nagging back issue, and the Cavaliers did not update his status prior to Friday's game. However, he is out on the court for the opening tip, so it appears he'll fight through any lingering discomfort.

Smith is having some back issues prior to Friday's game and is a game-time call, the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Chris Haynes reports.

If he is unable to go, Shawn Marion will get the start. Monitor his status leading up to tipoff, but it would be wise to shy away from using him a daily league, as back trouble is something that could flare up again once the game has started.

Smith contributed 14 points (5-13 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists, and one steal during 37 minutes on the court against the Lakers on Thursday.

Smith continues to start for the Cavaliers as he will likely hold down that position moving forward. He even attempted more shots than Kevin Love on Thursday, and unless things change, he'll be playing a larger role than was expected upon his arrival in Cleveland. That being said, Love, Kyrie Irving, and LeBron James will continue being the primary options for the Cavaliers, while Smith gets plenty of opportunities beyond the arc and time spent on the court as a starter.
