Russell Smith undergoes minor knee surgery

Louisville freshman point guard-to-be Russell Smith underwent surgery on Monday to repair small tears to his medial and lateral meniscus.

The good news is an MRI taken two weeks ago revealed no damage to Smith's ACL or MCL.

Smith will refrain from any basketball-related activities for at least five weeks but should be back to full strength sometime around the Fourth of July.
