Chris Smith made the Knicks!

Oh, brother.

The Knicks retained J.R. Smith’s brother Chris Smith on their 15-man roster, but in a surprise, released injured 6-foot-10 forward Jeremy Tyler.

Tyler had foot surgery in early September, and is not expected back until late November — at the earliest. Despite Mike Woodson’s sentiments, he was waived Friday along with four other players.

On Wednesday in Green Bay, Wis., Woodson said "respect" for J.R. Smith would be a factor in weighing whether to keep Chris Smith, who played just 20 minutes during the preseason. Also this week, Woodson indicated Tyler was a keeper, saying at one point he did not think the Knicks would "kick him to the curb."

Center Cole Aldrich, a former lottery pick, survived the cut despite an up-and-down preseason, as did combo guard Toure’ Murry, who had a brilliant preseason.
