No timetable yet for return of J.R. Smith

J.R. Smith continues to progress in his rehab from offseason knee surgery. But there is no timetable for his return.

“No, not yet,” Smith said Saturday. “I wish.”

Smith had left patella tendon surgery and an arthroscopy for a tear in the lateral meniscus of his left knee in mid-July.

The initial recovery time for Smith’s surgery, which was performed by team orthopedist Dr. Answorth Allen, was approximately 12 to 16 weeks. That meant Smith would likely miss part of training camp and the beginning of the regular season.
