JR Smith to Miss Three Games With Left Foot Injury

by October 19, 2012

JR Smith says he has an Achilles injury, but the New York Knicks list him as out with an injured ankle. Either way, he won’t be playing for the next three games. Reports the NY Post: “J.R. Smith has been booted from the Knicks three-game preseason road trip that begins tonight against the Raptors. Smith, now wearing a protective boot on his left foot, didn’t practice yesterday and will not make the Knicks three-game trip. Smith missed Saturday’s game in Hartford with what the Knicks still term a sore ankle, but Smith said he has an Achilles injury. Smith practiced Tuesday, but was shut down Wednesday. The Knicks have not said if Smith is staying back to have an MRI exam.”
