Arkansas coach Eric Musselman will miss at least his team's next two games after undergoing shoulder surgery to repair injuries he suffered in a practice earlier this season, the school announced Thursday. First-year assistant coach Keith Smart — a former NBA head coach for the Cavaliers, Warriors and Kings — will serve as interim coach during Musselman's recovery.

The Razorbacks (11-5, 1-3 SEC) play at No. 12 LSU on Saturday and host South Carolina on Tuesday. After losing five of six games, Arkansas got back on track Wednesday night with an 87-43 thrashing of Missouri to send Musselman to the operating room on a positive note.
