The Knicks said Smith's injuries, which were treated at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City by team orthopedist Dr. Answorth Allen, were chronic and gradually worsened. His recovery time is approximately 3 to 4 months, which could make him available between Oct. 15 and Nov. 15 -- near the start of the 2013-14 season.
