Spotted in walking boot Smith returned to the sidelines in a walking boot after suffering an ankle injury Wednesday against Auburn, Brandon Champion of MLive.com reports.
Impact Smith suffered the injury in the first half and initially tried to give it a go, but he didn't return for the second half of the contest, resulting in a season-low 12 minutes. It's unclear how serious the injury may be or what the senior's timetable for return currently is. Vance Jackson ended up starting the second half in place of Smith, but Arkansas utilized four-guard lineups for much of the rest of the contest. Connor Vanover also chipped in 17 points in 26 minutes at the center position.
