From Your Description....

In reply to FORCED TO CUT OUT FLOOR JOIST by GUNNER on February 11th, 2003 09:53 PM [Go to top of thread]

If you are able to sister another 2x10 to the joist you are cutting, you should be fine. I would extend the sistered joist at least 4 feet either side of the cut, and use a structural adhesive (such as PL400) plus screws top and bottom every 6 inches.
It is better to let that joist carry its own load rather than the joists on either side having to carry it.
Good Luck!
