The Knicks also said Saturday that an MRI on guard J.R. Smith's left foot revealed a small tear of the plantar fascia and he is questionable for their game Sunday against Toronto.

Shumpert was hurt Friday night in a collision during the Knicks' victory at Boston, screaming in pain before being helped off the court. The team says he will not need surgery and will be re-evaluated in approximately three weeks.

Shumpert is averaging 9.3 points.
