NEW YORK (AP) — J.R Smith missed the New York Knicks' game against Sacramento on Wednesday night because he was uncomfortable with the mask he was to wear over a broken cheekbone.

Smith was hurt Sunday at Oklahoma City and was expected to play Wednesday, but wasn't given the mask until earlier in the day and didn't feel right with it.

Smith also didn't want to play without it for fear of further injury, acknowledging his choice to sit out was a "somewhat selfish decision."

The Knicks' sixth man said he would need to wear the mask a few weeks and was hoping to get it restructured a little first.
