Smith (heel) will not play Saturday, The Record's Steve Popper reports.

He had been doubtful, so this does not come as a surprise. This will be the sixth game he misses due to the heel injury. Coach Derek Fisher said Smith probably won't travel with the team for Sunday's game in Toronto, so that rules him out until at least Christmas Day against the Wizards. Tim Hardaway will continue to get the start at shooting guard for now.

Smith (heel) will not travel with the team for Thursday's game in Chicago, Fred Kerber of the New York Post reports.

Smith continues to battle a heel injury, which has kept him out of the last four games. He'll remain in New York, potentially aiming for a return Saturday when the Knicks host Phoenix. Consider Smith day-to-day until further notice, and expect Tim Hardaway, Jr. to make another start in his place Thursday. The Michigan product scored 14 points (5-17 FG, 0-8 3Pt) Tuesday against Dallas.

Updating a previous note: Smith will not be active Sunday against the Raptors.

The Knicks originally announced that Smith, who missed tow gams with a heel issue, would return to action and start Sunday, but after the guard tested out the heel during warmups, the medical staff opted to hold him out. Tim Hardaway, Jr. figures to slide back in as the starting shooting guard, as Iman Shumpert (shoulder) remains sidelined.

Smith (heel) will start Sunday's game against the Raptors, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports.

Smith missed a pair of games with a partial tear of his left plantar fascia, most recently sitting out Friday against Boston. He'll return as the starting two guard Sunday, pushing Tim Hardaway, Jr. back to the bench. While Smith's presence in the lineup is encouraging, plantar fascia injuries can tend to linger, so his minutes will likely be closely monitored.

Smith has been diagnosed with a partial tear of his left plantar fascia and is considered day-to-day, the Bergen Record reports.

Smith missed his second straight game Friday with what was labeled a bone bruise, but an MRI on Saturday revealed the partial tear to his plantar fascia. The Knicks aren't willing to rule him out for Sunday's game against Toronto just yet, though with Smith hobbled and Iman Shumpert (shoulder) out as well, it seems likely Tim Hardaway will see most of the time at the No. 2 position.

Smith (heel) is unlikely to play against the Celtics on Friday, Ian Begley of ESPN reports.

Smith is likely to miss his second-straight game with his current heal injury. Considering that initial X-rays came back negative, he likely just needs some time to rest with his next opportunity to get on the court coming Sunday against the Raptors.
