It has revealed extensive bone bruising.
Latics' medical staff will continue to assess the injury on a daily basis.
Head of Sports Medicine Jon Guy says there is an outside chance that Smith (pictured) will be back for the game at Shrewsbury Town next Saturday, but a more realistic target will be at Swindon Town on Good Friday.
Smith limped out of last Saturday's defeat at Tranmere Rovers after picking up the knock.
