NEW YORK -- The NBA gave J.R. Smith a warning -- and then a $50,000 fine when he ignored it. The league penalized the New York Knicks guard again Wednesday, this time for "recurring instances of unsportsmanlike conduct" after he tried to untie an opponents sneaker for a second time in two games. Smith untied Mavericks forward Shawn Marions shoe while they were standing next to each other during a free throw attempt at Dallas on Sunday and was warned not to repeat the act by the league office. Coach Mike Woodson had said before Tuesdays home game against Detroit that Smith shouldnt be doing things like that, but the reserve guard then tried it again on Greg Monroe during a free throw attempt -- with league disciplinarian Rod Thorn in attendance. "Ive always said I dont condone things that I know you shouldnt do and no, Im not happy about this, because again, he was warned, he comes back and he makes the same mistake and its not right," Woodson said during a radio interview with ESPN New York. "Im going to address it tomorrow when he comes in here for work, because its unacceptable, I mean it really is. I mean, its unprofessional. Thats the only word I can use, or two words. Its just, you cant do that. You just cannot do that." But Smith does keep doing things like that in whats becoming an expensive season for the reigning Sixth Man of the Year. Smith was suspended without pay for the first five games of the season, costing him about $253,000 of his $5.6 million salary, after violating terms of the leagues anti-drug program. He was then fined $25,000 in November for using hostile and inappropriate language toward the Pistons Brandon Jennings on his Twitter account. Smith is shooting under 35 per cent from the field and averaging 11.3 points, a drop of about seven per game from last season. Antoine Vermette Jersey .

Oliver Ekman-Larsson Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. Michael Stone Jersey .The 24-year-old quarterback spent four seasons at Northern Illinois and in 2013 was a finalist for the Heisman, which is awarded annually to the most outstanding player in U. While expectations might be raised by the Columbus Blue Jackets finish to last season, they dont have the kind of talent that will attract significant fantasy interest this season. Top Picks: Marian Gaborik is coming off a poor season -- his 0.57 points per game his lowest output since his rookie yearin 1998-1999 -- but hes also one year removed from a 41-goal season, and has scored 30 or more goals seven times. Add in a little contract year motivation and hes an easy No. 2 right wing. The biggest reason that the Blue Jackets were nearly a playoff team last season was the play of G Sergei Bobrovsky, who had a .932 save percentage. In three NHL seasons, his career save percentage is .917 so regression is virtually assured, but if Bobrovsky even matches his career numbers while starting 65 games, hell be a valuable fantasy goaltender. The warning here, though, is to take him as your No. 2 and not before. Value Plays: C Brandon Dubinsky scored just two goals in 29 games last season and his offence has been heading the wrong way since a couple of 20-goal seasons, but he still plays a sound two-way game. A little bit of offensive resurgence, combined with his physical game (hits and/or PIMs) makes Dubinsky a fringe fantasy player. While hes a minus machine -- a league-worst minus-85 since the start of the 2007-2008 season -- D Jack Johnson plays a ton and has 135 points since the start of 2009-2010, ranking 21st among defencemen. Balancing out the plus-minus risk, hes still okay as a No. 3 or No. 4. LW Artem Anisimov has offensive upside, but he has yet to score 20 goals or 45 points in a season, so hes likely one to watch on the waiver wirre.dddddddddddd Sleepers/Breakthrough: Smallish scoring winger Cam Atkinson has 32 points in 82 NHL games, which is a fine start to his career, but he also has 49 goals in 89 AHL games since coming out of Boston College, a pedigree that suggests he should be able to keep scoring. Since he was drafted fourth overall in 2010, Ryan Johansen has shown flashes, putting up 33 points in 107 NHL games (33 points in 40 AHL games last season), but hasnt been able to maintain enough consistency to be a productive player. The 21-year-old has enough potential to warrant a look in deep leagues. He has a hard time staying healthy and is minus-28 over the last three seasons, but D James Wisniewski is productive enough when hes in the lineup, scoring 48 of his 92 points over the last three years on the power play. The Blue Jackets have a collection of forwards who, from time to time, may have some appeal, a group that includes Nick Foligno, R. J. Umberger, Mark Letestu and, once hes healthy, Nathan Horton, but theyre not going to have draft day appeal in most formats. Rookies: Theres no guarantee that C Boone Jenner will start the year in Columbus, but hes coming off a fine season, scoring 82 points in 56 games with Oshawa in the OHL, adding nine points in 13 (regular season plus playoff) games in the AHL at the end of the season. If he does stick, he could contribute some offensively with a physical game, though it may not be enough to deserve fantasy consideration.
