J.R. Smith suspended First 5 Games

League sources tell “Yahoo Sports” that the reigning 6th man of the year, JR Smith, will be suspended for a violation of the league’s substance abuse policy and is expected to miss the first 5 games.

The league is due to make a formal announcement today that says Smith tested positive for marijuana, a source with direct knowledge of the result told Yahoo Sports.

Smith just signed a 3-year $18 million dollar extension with the New York Knicks in July.
