Iman Shumpert, J.R. Smith, Kenyon Martin all miss Monday practice

The Knicks were missing three players at Monday's practice, just one day before the must-win Game 4 against the Indiana Pacers. J.R. Smith and Kenyon Martin are both fighting illnesses and are considered game-time calls for Tuesday.

Despite his flu, Smith played 25 minutes with a high fever on Saturday for Game 3. Although not his best performance, he still saw plenty of minutes and is likely to play again on Tuesday. Mike Woodson said Sunday that if Smith doesn't return to form by Game 4, his strategy will involve "mixing and matching" other players into the rotation, per ESPN.

Iman Shumpert's absence at practice looks a little more troubling, as he sits out with a sore left knee. Shumpert's left knee is the one that had to be surgically repaired last season after he tore his ACL, but Woodson expects him to play on Tuesday. Shumpert referred to his knee as merely sore from a bruise, and also indicated his plans to play.
