Default Jason Smith to have surgery 9/17 ml
Tomorrow, Jason Smith begins the difficult road back to the basketball court.
The 76ers' 7-foot backup center, a first-round pick in the 2007 draft, will have surgery in New York City to repair the torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, according to Smith's agent, Marc Bartelstein.

Smith was hurt Aug. 7 while shooting a layup at an NBA-approved camp in Las Vegas.

David Altchek, the attending orthopedic surgeon at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, evaluated Smith in August and is believed to be performing the operation.

Bartelstein said Smith was in Philadelphia completing pre-surgery physical therapy to strengthen the muscles around the knee.

"Jason's doing well," Bartelstein said. "He's anxious to do the surgery and get started on the rehab process."

The Sixers have not put a timetable on Smith's return, but he is believed to be out for the entire 2008-09 season.
