Tuesday Post-Practice Links: Rasheed Wallace and J.R. Smith practiced today, kinda.

Debby Wong-US PRESSWIRE

The Knicks held practice Tuesday before Wednesday's final preseason game against the Nets.

Heeeeey guys. Heeeeey. The Knicks practiced today and some reporters looked at them and asked questions at them and here's what came of that:

- Rasheed Wallace and J.R. Smith practiced drills and conditioning stuff with the rest of the team today, but didn't participate in halfcourt scrimmages. Meanwhile, Marcus Camby was on the side working as best he could through the strained calf. None of those three will play in tomorrow's preseason finale against the Nets.

- J.R., who'd previously said he planned to play Wednesday, was very apologetic to all of us after getting scratched from that game.

- Oh, and he spent a portion of practice doing the salsa.

- Sheed, meanwhile, sounds ready for cruise control, but perhaps not city driving.

- Over on the actual practice court, Mike Woodson sent out a first unit including Ronnie Brewer at shooting guard, Carmelo Anthony at the three, and Kurt Thomas at the four. Depending on who the Nets intend to start, he'll either go with that lineup or something resembling Monday night's three-guard lineup with Melo at power forward. Woodson probably doesn't want Melo getting beat up by Kris Humphries, which is reasonable, although one must consider the mismatch potential in the other direction.

- Interesting Iman Shumpert note here from Jared Zwerling, and it actually sounds about right:

Insight into Iman's recovery: thought he was jumping too high on Js & less technique so focus now is less elevation, better release.

The Knicks will play tomorrow, then take Thursday to rest, followed by a final stretch of practices and (one hopes) recovery leading up to the November 1 season opener. It is very nearly time.
