Thompson, who recently learned the sex of his baby with Khloe Kardashian, suffered a sprained right ankle in Saturday night's 126-117 loss to the Denver Nuggets.

Two hours before tipoff, the Cavaliers announced Smith had been suspended one game for detrimental conduct.

The Cavs big man played all 82 games in four straight seasons from 2012-16 and totaled 447 consecutive games before a thumb injury kept him out for a few games past year. He has played all 82 games for 4 straight seasons from 2012-2016 and at one point had played 447 consecutive games before a thumb injury broke his streak and kept him out for a few games a year ago. He went on to play 13 minutes in the second half - finishing the game with 12 points and seven rebounds - but experienced "significant swelling" overnight, according to the team. He has failed to maintain his past production when on the court.


The Cleveland Cavaliers are in trouble.

With center Tristan Thompson sidelined the next few games, it will be upon Larry Nance Jr.to be the defensive anchor in the middle. LeBron James is doing everything he can, but the Cavs are still struggling.

On the season, the Cavaliers are averaging 110.0 points, 42.0 rebounds and 23.5 assists per game. The trade for Blake Griffin was supposed to ignite Detroit, but they are just 6-8 since the star forward landed in Motown and sit four-and-a-half games in back of the Miami Heat for the eighth and final playoff spot.

Looking at the betting trends, the Pistons are 0-6 ATS in their last six road games, 1-5 ATS in their last six games against a team with a winning record and 7-21 ATS in their last 28 games overall.
