Good gracious, another Knicks injury?!  At least this time, he can still play — but with a mask.  The team announced that J.R. Smith suffered a small fracture in his left cheekbone during Sunday’s game.  He is expected to play Wednesday, but he will be rocking a protective mask.  This should be great. Lol.  Hit the jump for more details…

New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith suffered a minor fracture in his left cheekbone in Sunday’s loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, but is not expected to miss any time with the injury, the team announced Tuesday.

Smith was injured with 7:25 left in the fourth quarter of the 112-100 loss when his face collided with Thunder forward Kevin Durant’s knee.

Smith was fitted for a facemask on Tuesday and is expected to play on Wednesday night against the Sacramento Kings.
