Another Josh Smith update

Josh Smith will revist his doctor tomorrow to see and hear about results of the x-ray and MRI the Kentwood basketball star had on his right knee yesterday.

Earlier today, Kentwood coach Michael Angelidis said he expects the 6-foot-10 Smith, who has signed with UCLA, to be out “about a week,” but there is no firm timeline, according to his mother, Tracey Smith, who had the opportunity to return my phone calls late this afternoon.

“I don’t want to speculate,” Tracey said.

Apparently, the Josh was scheduled to see his doctor again next week, but his mother said she was able to get him an appointment tomorrow. She did not confirm that the injury, suffered in Tuesday’s loss to top-ranked Federal Way, is indeed a partially torn patellar tendon, as reported by Angelidis.

“He’s doing fine,” she said. “He hurt his knee. It’s being evaluated…He doesn’t need surgery. It’s not an ACL.”

We will be trying to follow up, but Tracey Smith said today that this is an extremely busy time at work for her and her husband and that she is not sure when they will be able to provide an update.
