J.R. Smith has found his shooting touch lately — in his last five games he has averaged 17.6 points a game, hitting 43.8 from beyond the arc, and with a true shooting percentage of 60.4.

This isn’t going to help.

Smith has a small fracture in his cheekbone and will keep playing but will wear a mask Wednesday night against the Kings, the team announced. The injury happened against the Thunder Sunday when his face collided with Kevin Durant’s knee.

A lot of players struggle with their shot once they don the mask; we’ll have to see how Smith likes it.
