New York Knicks star J.R. Smith has cast doubt over his future after revealing he doesn't know if he will stay at the franchise, reports ESPN

Smith has been in the headlines for the wrong reasons of late after being fined $50,000 by the NBA for unsporting conduct after untying the laces of his opponents. 

Smith was then benched for the Knicks' match with Miami Heat - something Smith didn't take very kindly to. And now he has revealed that he is unsure about his future with the team. 

Despite the absence of Smith, the Knicks beat the Heat 102-92 at Madison Square Garden to secure their third straight victory in a row.

When speaking to reporters, Smith said: "Honestly, I don't even know at this point. At one point I was for sure, and now it's rocking the boat. But it is what it is. It's the nature of the business."

Smith also revealed that he had expected to play against the Heat, but was happy the team managed to win. 

He continued by saying: "I think that's the most misleading part of it," Smith said. "I could see if I was told, but there was no conversation about it. But it is what it is. We got the [win]."

The Knicks star will now be hoping to be involved in his teams next clash as they take on Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday.
