The New York Knicks may have to take the floor in Game 4 without their sixth man.
J.R. Smith was ejected from Friday’s win over the Boston Celtics because he hit Jason Terry in the face with an elbow.
Smith was assessed a Flagrant 2 foul by officials and ejected from the game. The league will review the flagrant and can opt to suspend Smith. If he’s suspended, he will serve the suspension on Sunday.
Per playoff rules, if Smith gets one more flagrant, it will trigger an automatic suspension.
