I asked Eric Musselman this afternoon what he thought of Justin Smith’s play in his second game back from injury. Said there was still a little bit of rust offensively, but liked his activity defensively and on the offensive glass.
Musselman added he has been in the training room with Smith, and his ankle is swollen and sore today. Trainer told him that is kind of to be expected after playing more minutes following a game he was limited in. Smith won’t do much of anything in practices today and Friday given the early tip on Saturday. Musselman expects the Vanderbilt game to happen as of 2 p.m.
