Playing basketball and then clubbing all night, can lead to flu-like symptoms. You have to give your body a chance to rest. Hopefully, JR is feeling better by game time.
Definitely don’t want another Luol Deng situation, so he shouldn’t try to play if he is truly that sick. Better to take the night off and get better, than ended up in the hospital.
Woodson said JR Smith had 102 fever and is questionable to play tonight. Found out about illness this morning #Knicks
