The Knicks released both good and bad news on Tuesday ahead of their Game 4 matchup against the Indiana Pacers.

J.R. Smith and Kenyon Martin are feeling better after missing their last two practices because of an illness and will play Tuesday night in Indiana, according to a tweet from Knicks reporter for MSG Network Tina Cervasio.

Smith and Martin had missed practice on Sunday and Monday following the team's 82-71 loss in Game 3 on Saturday night. But both participated in the morning shootaround on Tuesday and, according to Cervasio, will play in Game 4.

The bad news concerns guard Iman Shumpert, who has been dealing with a sore left knee, the same knee where he tore a ligament in last year's playoffs, causing him to miss the first two-and-a-half months of this season. According to Cervasio, an orthopedic surgeon is flying in to Indiana on Tuesday to evaluate Shumpert and Knicks head coach Mike Woodson said, "They will direct me where to go with Iman."

The Pacers lead the series 2-1. The Knicks head back to New York on Wednesday for Game 5 of the series which gets underway Thursday night.
