Smith, Martin, Shumpert miss Knicks' practice

The SportsXchange

The New York Knicks were without guard J.R. Smith, guard-forward Iman Shumpert and forward Kenyon Martin during practice Monday.

The Knicks host the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday for Game 4 of their Eastern Conference second-round series. The Pacers lead 2-1.

Smith and Martin have illnesses and are considered game-time decisions.

Smith played 25 minutes of Saturday's Game 3, despite a high fever due to the flu.

Shumpert has a sore left knee, the same one that was surgically repaired last season from a torn ACL. The New York Times reported that the knee is bruised and not related to the surgery. He said he plans to play Tuesday.
