J.R. Smith is probably already regretting his decision to play pro ball in China during the NBA lockout. In his first regular-season game of the season this weekend, Smith was cutting through the lane when his knee got jammed into the floor and he went down in pain. Though his father, Earl Smith, later said that his son should be fine, the younger Smith was reportedly grimacing in pain after sustaining the injury and had to be carried by his teammates out to an ambulance. He'll have an MRI on the knee soon to assess the damage.

NBA players, take notice: Playing overseas could result in a big payday. But it could also result in something like this. You've officially been warned.
