JR Smith Injures Knee in China


Nuggets ownership and fans, your nightmares may have become reality. JR Smith reportedly suffered a serious knee injury playing for his Chinese team, Zhejiang. Per Jon Pastuszek’s Twitter account: “J.R. Smith leaves CBA regular season opener in 4th quarter with knee injury, looks serious…J.R. Smith unable walk on his own, carried to hospital-bound ambulance by teammates.” And Justin Phan of Yahoo! has photos of Smith on the bench post-injury via his Twitter account.

    at first i was like lol, then i read it was like ouch, poor JR. and MUBWAR, even if the NBA came back for this season, JR wouldnt be back because he has no out clause in his contract if i remember correctly

  • Jono

    For fu(k sake JR, just come back to Denver….

  • MikeC.

    I hope he got Blue Cross before he left.

  • Jer Boi

    not like he can leave when he lockouts done anyway. it’s China

  • J OK

    cosign Jer Boi…im sick and tired of people actually believing the myth that a “no out” clause in China means shi*. Dude can leave whenever he wants.

  • shutupallenp

    This is exactly what i was talking about, so does that void his nba contract?

  • http://dodgers.com Joey E.

    ^he would be a free agent so he’s not under contract

  • EtheKnickFan

    See what too much MSG do to a brother?

  • shutupallenp

    so then it just severely affects his contract worth now?

    ^yes. This sucks for JR. Was really hoping he’d dominate over there.

    Maybe we should blame the Chinese league for breaking JR the way they blamed the NBA for Yao Ming’s injuries.

  • BBaller

    This should be a warning to all!!!!

  • BBaller

    He has injured himself while only making a fraction of what he could of made in the nba.Players beware.

    THE CHINESE SEASON ENDS IN FEBRUARY RIGHT? HE CAN JUST SIGN WITH ANY NBA TEAM HE’D LIKE,

  • Ryan

    Well, its safe to say that we will never see him again.

  • CubicleWorker

    Hate to see a player of this calibre go down like this, especially being that he wasn’t one of the influential players adamantly opposing the lockout.
