Jason Smith was forced to miss the final 24 games of the 2012-13 season due to an injured -- torn labrum -- right shoulder and with just over three weeks to go until the start of training camp he still is not allowed to participate in any contact drills. He is hoping the New Orleans Pelicans medical staff will lift the restriction soon.
