The 76ers have confirmed that Jason Smith is out for the entire season.
But, truthfully, didn't we already know that?
Isn't that how long it long it takes to fully recover from surgery to reconstruct a torn anterior cruciate ligament in a knee?
Smith, the Sixers' second-year big man, underwent the procedure on his left knee last week. Mark Bartelstein, Smith's agent, said at the time that it was far more important to make certain that his client rehabs properly and gives himself the best opportunity to come back as strong as possible, whenever that might be.
