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.

The Mavericks are hedging their bets that Ferrell, who eventually signed a two-year contract with Dallas, can be their starting point guard for many years to come. By waiving Williams, that process stats immediately. So what exactly are the Mavericks expecting from Ferrell, who turns 24 on May 9? “Continued improvement, continued aggression, continue to get integrated more and more into the mentality we like to play with,’’ coach Rick Carlisle said. “He’s going to have a lot of tough defensive assignments along the way. “There’s a lot of good players coming in at the point guard position, and he’s going to have the responsibility of playing those guys, at least why he’s a starter.”
