JR Smith (thumb) questionable to return to the Cavaliers' lineup on Thursday

He's listed as questionable for Cleveland's game in Detroit on Thursday.

Reggie Jackson - who missed the first 21 games of the season with a left knee injury - comes into the contest as Detroit's leading scorer (15.1 ppg) and assist man (5.4 apg).

LeBron James fired a pass that deflected off Smith's hands into the corner in front of the Cavaliers' bench. One of the team's top 3-point shooting weapons, Smith was shooting 36 percent from beyond the arc - his lowest since 2013 with NY. Andre Drummond added 20 points and 16 rebounds in the win.

LeBron will match up primarily against Marcus Morris, who's notched double-figures in 14 of his previous 15 games - including a 36-point outing at Minnesota and a 37-point outburst against the Blazers.

While players were practicing on March 8 at the Cleveland Clinic Courts in Independence, the Cavs announced Bogut is out for the year. He started just once for head coach Steve Kerr in the past two seasons. Cleveland's blue collar big has tallied double-figure boards in 35 games so far this year, including both matchups against Detroit.

Also, Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith has been cleared to resume practicing. The Cavs guard, who was sidelined due to a broken thumb and hasn't played since December 20, put out a video on Twitter announcing his return.

Because of several major injuries to key players on their roster, the Cleveland Cavaliers have yet to play at full strength this season while defending their National Basketball Association title.
