Smith back later this month

Just back in town after the trip to Los Angeles, and didn’t get to Lorenzo Romar’s weekly press briefing today.
But Jayda Evans, who covered it for us, reports that Romar said that Joel Smith has ditched his crutches and is only wearing a boot. At practice he’ll remove the boot and do some light walking and sliding drills. If he continues to heal and not feel pain, Romar expects Smith to return this month.
So that sounds like good news for adding to UW’s backcourt, both in terms of defense and scoring.
And as we’ve reported here before, Smith says he wants to play this year and not redshirt, so that’s not an issue.
