Found October 10, 2012 on The Cardinal Connect:
PLAYERS: Chris Smith
TEAMS: New York Knicks
The injury curse from last year’s 2011-12 Louisville basketball squad has unfortunately made its way to the NBA.Former Cardinal guard Chris Smith has reportedly suffered a knee injury that will cause him to miss the next 3-6 months. Chris suffered this injury in practice with the New York Knicks as they are currently in preseason play. He will have left patella tendon surgery later this month.This is tough news for Chris, considering his chances of making the Knicks final roster appeared greater than we initially expected. Second year Knick guard Iman Shumphert is currently recovering from a torn ACL. With Shumphert out, Smith was expected to get a chance to prove himself in New York’s preseason games.
