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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Description: Knicks guard J.R. Smith warmed up prior to Saturday's game against Philadelphia, but we'd be surprised if he played.

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.

Description: It's been a busy day for J.R. Smith and not in a good way. First, he was fined $50,000 for untying his opponent's shoe lace. Now it looks like the Knicks are trying to trade him. SOURCE: Marc Stein, ESPN
Insight: Smith's recent misbehavior, along with his ineffectiveness, aren't exactly helping his trade value. The Knicks are already regretting their decision to sign Smith to a new four-year deal in the offseason. His 11.3 ppg scoring average this season is his lowest since 2006.
 
1/8/2014 1:03:00 PM
Description: The NBA has fined Knicks guard J.R. Smith $50,000 for recurring instances of unsportsmanlike conduct. SOURCE: Al Iannazzone, Newsday
Insight: Smith untied Shawn Marion's shoe when Dirk Nowitzki was on the foul line during the second quarter Sunday. He was warned by the league for the act, but attempted to do it again to Greg Monroe Tuesday night. The shooting guard has shot just 34.8 percent from the field this season and he's really wearing thin Mike Woodson's patience with his recent actions.
 
12/21/2013 8:40:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard J.R. Smith has averaged 17.7 points, 6.3 assists, 4.3 rebounds, 2.3 steals and 4.0 threes per game over the last three contests.
Insight: Smith came into Saturday's game shooting a pitiful 34 percent from the field in December and 33 percent this season. He made 6-of-12 on his way to 16 points, seven assists, four boards, four steals and two threes. We haven't seen the last of his poor shooting, unfortunately.
