Wake Forest guard L.D. Williams rooms with injured teammate Ish Smith. So Williams knows how Smith, who injured his left foot on Sept. 19, is dealing with the injury.
Williams said Smith, who had surgery on Sept. 22, is doing fine. Smith hasn't stopped talking about basketball, even in their off-the-court moments at home so that's a good sign. You can listen to Williams talk about Smith, and about how annoying all the hoops talk has been at times, in both of these audio clips from ACC media day on Sunday.
Smith, easily one of the fastest guards in the ACC, could return in time for the season opener against N.C. Central University on Nov. 14. Wake Forest was ranked No. 24 in the preseason USA Today Coaches poll.
