Cavs shooting guard J.R. Smith could be back on the court within two weeks, according to head coach Tyronn Lue.

“I’m not sure. They’ve been saying two weeks for two weeks,” Lue said of the target date berfore Friday night’s game at Atlanta. “But I don’t know. Hopefully the next 10 days to two weeks he’ll be back. They’re saying he’s been looking better and better every day, he had a good workout yesterday, so hopefully we get him back soon.”

This road trip, which began Wednesday in Boston, marked the first time since Smith’s thumb injury in which he traveled with the team on the road.
