Redskins quarterback Alex Smith made an appearance at the Washington Wizards game on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. 

Smith was seen in a box at Capital One Arena wearing a large cast on his injured right leg.

Smith, who was released from the hospital in December after suffering multiple complications following a devastating leg injury that required nearly a half dozen operations, has not been seen much in public after suffering the injury in November. 

According to Dr. David J. Chao, the "contraption" on Smith's leg is an external fixator, "which serves to hold the bones in place since the hardware from his initial surgery had to be removed."

In the box with Smith was Washington Mystics coach Mike Thibault. A pair of crutches were also seen behind Smith.

Afrer the Wizards 101-87 win over the Pistons, Smith visited the Washington locker room.

While there has been no word on whether Smith will return to the football field, the size of the cast on his leg makes it unlikely he will be playing for the Redskins anytime soon.
