J.R. Smith had surprise knee surgery yesterday to repair the patellar tendon and arthroscopy for a tear of the lateral meniscus in his left knee. He’ll be out 3-4 months, reports Jared Zwerling of ESPNNewYork.com. Frank Isola of the New York Daily News did not like the timing of the procedure and said as much over Twitter.

Isola’s Twitter feed continues like that for a while as he progressively bashes the Knicks for either knowing that Smith needed surgery on his knee, and still giving him the longest contract of his career, or being in the dark about the knee, and agreeing on the contract without knowing Smith’s true health status.
