J.R. Smith has small fracture in cheekbone, will wear mask Wed.
J.R. Smith fractured his face Sunday against the Thunder and will wear a mask because of it.
After a nasty fall Sunday against the Thunder where Smith hit his face on Kevin Durant's knee, he suffered a small fracture in his cheekbone and is being fitted for a mask.
Smith, who has been part of a number of issues and problems this season, has actually been playing quite a bit better lately, averaging 17.6 points in February on 46.9 percent shooting and 43.8 from 3. But dealing with a mask could take some adjusting and with the Knicks playing against the Kings on Wednesday, that'll be something to watch.
Smith, 28, is averaging 13.0 points and 4.0 rebounds in 40 games this season.
