First let me note that these are great yin/passive poses for healthy knees and ankles. They will help you to open greater range of motion and circulation in these areas, and provide an occasional chiropractic adjustment. If your knees and ankles are NOT healthy, proceed with great caution and take advantage of the prop suggestions. If you feel pain, you need to back things waaaaaaaay up and turn these poses into active poses instead of yin poses. Pain is a sign that these are poses you need muscular support to avoid injury. Yin poses are meant to provide NO muscular support. This is one reason that they work so effectively into your joints.
