J.R. Smith was told the swelling he is experiencing in his surgically repaired left knee is "normal."
Woodson says it's not definite Smith plays tomorrow. Says know for sure tomorrow.
JR Smith on On Knicks-Nets: "There so much animosity between the two teams...." but they can't worry about that. They need a win.
JR Smith his knee swells up, but it's normal. He just needs to rest it more, but he says he's playing tomorrow.
Woodson adds may have to cut down on J.R Smith's minutes as he looked "slow" in practice last couple days with recent knee soreness.
Woodson: "My job is not to explain it to you guys" when asked why Shump wasn't on floor in fourth. Then says nothing to do with Shump-Melo
Carmelo on Jason Kidd saying both the Knicks and Nets stink: ""We do. He wasn't lying about that."
Don't mind me...I'm jus tweetin to pass th3 time in th3 cold tub
Bargnani just made a free-throw, grandma-style. Off the glass. So there's that.
Melo, on likely being mocked on TNT on Thurs. "We are the laughingstock of the league right now. It's nothing to hide. We are."
Melo and JR agreed with Kidd's: "Both teams stink." Melo and JR both said the Knicks stink right now. See, they are in sync on something
World Peace, Udrih, Prigioni and Bargnani are the last four NYKs on the practice floor to work on their shots
Carmelo Anthony bracing himself for Charles Barkley: "We are the laughingstock of the league right now. Do I like being laughed at? Hell no"
Carmelo agrees with Kidd that both teams stink - adds, "we are the laughing stock of the league"

Woodson said JR's knee is sore. But JR said he is playing
JVG on radio today says "some people think I'm behind the scenes plotting my return and Mike's demise.'' Nobody came close to writing that.
Woodson, on Kidd's coaching/strategies: "There's a few things he's taken [in terms of plays]."
JR Smith will likely play tomorrow, but he was sore and sat out the contact portion of practice today
Jim Dolan's top lieutenant, Barry Watkins, just entered the gym. That can only mean one thing...
More JVG to Lupica "Some people think I’m behind the scenes plotting my return and Mike’s demise? I mean, my goodness.” Actually, just BOTP
Jeff Van Gundy does go overboard when defending coaches but his take on the roster is dead on. It's better than 3-13 but not title material
Honestly, the biggest news of the day is that Mike Lupica has a radio show. Since when?
I guess this means that contrary to what Berman of the Post reported Jeff Van Gundy won't be coaching the Knicks by Dec. 25th.
More Jeff Van Gundy: "The last problem Knicks have, the very last problem, is a coaching issue."
More JVG on Mike Lupica's radio show: "This isn't a coaching issue; this is a roster issue."
JVG responding to Berman of the Post's "report" on ESPN Radio: "You're drawn into commenting on a rumor that there's no basis of fact."
JR Smith and Kenyon Martin both were held out of contact part of practice for second-straight day. Both are expected to play tomorrow.
Doesn't appear as if Kenyon Martin or J.R. Smith practiced much. J.R. is working out on the side and Kenyon is talking to Allan Houston.
Pablo Prigioni running with the starting unit for a second consecutive day while Kenyon Martin sits out scrimmage work.
Greetings from Greenburgh, at Knicks practice. It smells like a hardware store in the gym today!
Melo's problem is his filter.
Ewing was a GREAT leader. they all followed their coach who refused to accept any lack of focus (except in the case of Starks and Mason)
Patrick Ewing led by refusing to speak to the media and by always playing hurt. He let Starks, X and Mason go wild.
It's nice of the Kars4Kids people to start the ad with that high-hat, so I know just when to hit the mute button.
Twitter leadership experts
I wouldn't actually do it bc he deserves 10 games after Chandler comes back, but of course he wouldn't have to know that
Don't know record for highest vote percentage, but with Heat-Pacers a choice for NBA TV fan night next Tues, have to assume that breaks it.
In the greatest mood http://t.co/Crs48bD6VV
Great line from Berman of the Post tweeting that something reported in his paper holds "no weight." A little honesty from BOTP. Finally
Something tells me the Knicks would tout Allan Houston as the next Mark Jackson, not the next Jason Kidd.
Little known fact: Allan Houston and Jeff Van Gundy constantly butted heads. In the end, Allan admitted that JVG was good for his career.
No idea if Allan Houston can coach. His father, Wade, was a coach. Plus, Allan would be the NBA's best dressed coach by a country mile.
As I reported yesterday, vote of confidence Dolan issued in Post no longer holds same weight. Was 15 days ago &. 7 straight losses since.
When you come into a season with your body and mind ready for that next level, your game goes there. When you don't, you have a 3-13 start.
The Warriors proved last night to be a team that isn't just talking about it, they're BEING about it. Not just about one game, either.
If Jeff Van Gundy is floating his name for the Knicks' job next season, that means he's angling for the Lakers' job.,,
Let's try one last time: The Nets are so bad, James Dolan figures Prokhorov's father must've bought him his team, too...
Nets are so bad, the Silna brothers refuse to take their tv cut....
Nets are so bad, James Dolan figures Prokhorov's father must've him his team, too...
This is Woodson's team. As I've said many times he's earned the right to have Chandler come back. This is a playoff team.
It's hard to imagine he'd return during the season, however.
