Report: JR Smith Played With Fluid in His Knee During Playoffs
If your knee is hurting, you probably don’t want to be dancing and in tight club quarters every other night, but I digress.
It is unclear if Smith will need to undergo a procedure to drain fluid from his knee at this point, the source says.
A second source close to the player said Smith started complaining about “knee pain” during the Knicks’ first-round series against the Celtics. However, Smith did not mention the injury or any knee pain publicly during the playoffs or use it as an excuse for his poor play. He said after the Knicks’ Game 4 loss that he deserved all of the blame for the Knicks’ struggles against the Indiana Pacers.
No word if the fluid found in JR Smith’s knee was Hennessey.
