Description: Knicks guard J.R. Smith scored a season-high 28 points in Sunday's, 109-93, victory over the Nuggets.
Insight: Smith made 10-out-of-16 shots, including two 3-pointers. He also had four rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block.
 
11/5/2014 6:33:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard J.R. Smith is suspended one game due to his shot to Glen Rice Jr.'s groin on Tuesday night.
Insight: Smith will miss Wednesday's game versus the Pistons. With Smith out, Iman Shumpert should be in most fantasy lineups as he has a chance to build upon his 19-point outing from Tuesday. Tim Hardaway Jr. will also see an increase in minutes.
 
Hot10/24/2014 6:25:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard J.R. Smith told NBC Sports he is struggling to adjust to the triangle offense this preseason.
Insight: That's not what fantasy owners want to hear. Smith is already battling Iman Shumpert and Tim Hardaway Jr. for playing time. Even when he is on the court, he will always be the second option to Carmelo Anthony. Smith can still be a prolific 3-point shooter, but don't expect Derek Fisher to put up with his non-sense as Mike Woodson did.
 
Hot4/6/2014 4:03:00 PM
Description: New York guard J.R. Smith set a team record by hitting ten three-pointers Sunday in a loss to Miami.
Insight: The 24 three-pointers Smith has made over his last three games are an NBA record. He's averaged 29.3 ppg on 47.8 percent shooting during that span.
 
Hot4/2/2014 10:13:00 PM

2/17/2014 7:17:00 PM
Description: New York guard J.R. Smith (fractured cheekbone) said Monday that he'll play Tuesday against the Grizzlies, according to Al Iannazzone of Newsday.
Insight: Smith suffered a fractured cheekbone on Feb. 9 and sat out Wednesday because he was uncomfortable with his protective mask. Smith said no adjustments were made to the mask so he may have some issues with it when he returns to the court Tuesday.
 
2/12/2014 7:01:00 PM
Description: New York guard J.R. Smith (fractured cheekbone) will not play Wednesday, according to Marc Berman of the New York Post.
Insight: Smith said he's not comfortable with the protective mask he has to wear and will need it to be refitted. The guard suffered a fractured cheekbone during Sunday's game.
 
2/12/2014 6:20:00 PM
Description: New York guard J.R. Smith (fractured cheekbone) will be a game-time decision Wednesday against Sacramento.
Insight: Smith suffered the injury Sunday and will wear a mask if he plays. The guard has turned his season around with an average of 16.2 ppg (2.4 3pg) on 46.4 percent shooting his last 15 games.
 
2/11/2014 1:08:00 PM
Description: New York guard J.R. Smith suffered a fracture cheekbone in Sunday's game with Oklahoma City, but is probable for Wednesday's game against Sacramento.
Insight: Smith will have to wear a mask. Until Sunday's 7-point output, Smith had hit double-digits in 12 consecutive games.
 
Hot2/3/2014 11:57:00 PM
Description: New York guard J.R. Smith scored a season-high 30 points Monday against the Bucks.
Insight: Smith is in the midst of his best stretch of the season, producing double-digit points in 12 straight games and shooting over 47 percent from the field in that span.
 
Hot1/30/2014 10:33:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard J.R. Smith hit 8-of-16 from the field and scored 19 points with four rebounds, two assists, two threes, one steal and one block over 35 minutes Thursday against Cleveland.
Insight: Smith started with Iman Shumpert out with a shoulder injury. He has made 46.1 percent from the field and 45.8 percent from 3-point range over his last 10 games.
 
1/26/2014 6:30:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard J.R. Smith has made 45.9 percent of his shots in eight games since the shoelace incident.
Insight: Smith has averaged 16.6 ppg over his last five games after scoring 16 Sunday against Los Angeles. The guard was benched on Jan. 9 after ignoring warnings from coach Mike Woodson and the NBA to stop untying his opponents shoelaces at the free-throw line.
 
1/17/2014 9:56:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard J.R. Smith has nailed 25-of-49 (.510) from the field over his last four games.
Insight: Smith had a season-high 24 points in 9-of-18 shooting Friday and finally seems to be coming around after slumping for most of the season. Now if he could only stay out of his coach's doghouse.
 
1/16/2014 5:47:00 PM
Description: According to Newsday's Al Iannazzone, Knicks guard J.R. Smith will play Thursday after being benched Tuesday.
Insight: Smith was benched last week for his antics that involved untying opponents' shoelaces multiple times, and he found himself on the pine again Tuesday for venting his frustration about only playing 45 seconds in overtime the previous game.
 
1/15/2014 6:14:00 PM
Description: According to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News, Knicks guard J.R. Smith was benched Tuesday night for saying something to coach Mike Woodson after Monday's overtime win. Smith was upset he played just 45 seconds in overtime.
Insight: Smith was benched for his immature antics last week but he had played well the last two games before sitting again Tuesday.
 
1/14/2014 9:29:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard J.R. Smith was a DNP-Coach's Decision Tuesday against the Bobcats.
Insight: Interesting. Smith was benched for his immature antics last week but he had played well the last two games. Twelve Knicks players saw playing time Tuesday, but Smith never left the bench in New York's 10-point loss.
 
1/11/2014 10:13:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard J.R. Smith played 27 minutes and had 14 points, six assists, three rebounds, three threes and one steal Saturday at Philadelphia.
Insight: Knicks coach Mike Woodson benched Smith Thursday night after two separate incidents that saw Smith untie an opponent's shoelaces during free-throw attempts. The NBA warned Smith after the first incident and fined him $50,000 after the second, but it didn't seem like the guard got the point when he took a photograph pretending to untie someone's shoes at a club after Thursday's game. However, he came out and played his most efficient game of the season Saturday by going 5-of-8 from the field (3-4 3PT) with a 6-1 assist-to-turnover ratio.
 
Cold1/11/2014 8:15:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard J.R. Smith is playing Saturday against the Sixers.
Insight: Knicks coach Mike Woodson benched Smith Thursday night after two separate incidents that saw Smith untie an opponent's shoelaces during free-throw attempts. The NBA warned Smith after the first incident and fined him $50,000 after the second, but it doesn't seem like the guard gets the point. He took a photograph pretending to untie someone's shoes at a club after Thursday's game. Woodson said on ESPN NY 98.7 Wednesday that Smith needs to "grow up," but Smith said his coach has been saying that since he joined the team. "Honestly, the growing up, I don't know if I understand the true meaning of it," Smith said, according to the New York Times. Fantasy owners should bench Smith until he gets back on Woodson's good side.
 
Cold1/11/2014 6:58:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard J.R. Smith warmed up prior to Saturday's game against Philadelphia, but we'd be surprised if he played.
Insight: Knicks coach Mike Woodson benched Smith Thursday night after two separate incidents that saw Smith untie an opponent's shoelaces during free-throw attempts. The NBA warned Smith after the first incident and fined him $50,000 after the second, but it doesn't seem like the guard gets the point. He took a photograph pretending to untie someone's shoes at a club after Thursday's game. Woodson said on ESPN NY 98.7 Wednesday that Smith needs to "grow up," but Smith said his coach has been saying that since he joined the team. "Honestly, the growing up, I don't know if I understand the true meaning of it," Smith said, according to the New York Times.
 
Cold1/9/2014 9:55:00 PM
Description: It's the second half and Knicks guard J.R. Smith has yet to see the court Thursday against the Heat.
Insight: When TNT's Rachel Nichols asked head coach Mike Woodson what Smith's status was, he said "no comment." It's pretty clear that Smith is being benched for his bizarre behavior over the last week including three incidents where he untied his opponents' shoelaces at the free throw line. New York is reportedly looking to trade Smith, though no teams appear to be interested.
