New Orleans Hornets F/C Jason Smith will be out indefinitely with a knee injury.  Smith is scheduled to undergo surgery Wednesday to remove loose cartilage in his right knee.  

"A piece of cartilage kind of chipped off; I want to get it taken care of," Smith said. "They said if I tried to (play) through it, it could lock the knee up or tear some other stuff up. It (cartilage) is kind of floating. Once they get in there then they can take a guess at how severe it is. The quicker I get it taken care of, the quicker I can get back."
