Cavs shooting guard J.R. Smith threw a bowl of soup at Cavs assistant coach Damon Jones, according to a report from ESPN’s Dave McMenamin and Brian Windhorst, resulting in his one-game suspension for Thursday night’s loss to the Philadelphia 76ers at Quicken Loans Arena.

Smith returned to practice Friday after being suspended by the team for detrimental conduct. He declined to speak to the media, telling team officials he will talk at shootaround before Saturday’s home game against the Denver Nuggets.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue offered no more details about the situation. He said Smith did not address the team before its film session, but that he had “a little discussion” with Smith.

Asked about what happened Thursday, Lue said, “I’m not going to get into all that.”

Lue said Smith will regain his spot in the starting lineup against the Nuggets. Smith has started 213 of 223 games played for the Cavs since he was acquired from the New York Knicks in a three-team trade on Jan. 5, 2015.

Lue said Thursday the incident prompting Smith’s suspension happened after Thursday’s shootaround. After that session, Jones participated in a shooting contest with Cavs guard George Hill and Jones boasted about his prowess, saying, “When the camera’s on is when I’m at my best.”

Jones played 11 seasons in the NBA, including three with the Cavs from 2005-08 before becoming a roving instructor with the team and an assistant with the G League's Canton Charge.
