JR Smith back in April?

I hear J.R. Smith should be back by April and able to play at least a few games before the playoffs open. Smith is recovering from thumb surgery. The Cavs are pleased with his progress. He could be considered ahead of schedule. They don’t want to rush Smith. Their shooting guard is important because he’s a strong, athletic presence on defense — along with having amazing 3-point shooting range.

Morris, 28, will undergo sports hernia surgery Friday in St. Louis, according to several people with knowledge of the situation. While the timeline for his return to basketball activities is undetermined until surgery is complete, it should be expected that Morris will miss at least Wizards training camp, which begins Tuesday in Richmond. Morris recently received the diagnosis for surgery, according to a source, after spending parts of the summer working out in preparation for the upcoming season.
