Date:

Jason Smith played 18 minutes against the Thunder on Wednesday with 13 points, three rebounds, two steals and two blocks.

He got some important minutes tonight because Aaron Gordon was struggling tonight. Smith will likely play less in his next game.
Feb 3 - 11:31 PM

Jason Smith (shoulder) played 11 minutes against the Celtics on Friday with six points, one rebound and one steal.

Coach Scott Skiles loves him, but hopefully we don't see much of Smith going forward to help out the young guys.
Jan 29 - 10:45 PM

Jason Smith (stinger) will play vs. the Celtics on Friday.

He injured himself on Tuesday but should be fine for his typical 10-15 minutes off the bench tonight. Smith's role is far too limited for use outside of the deepest leagues.
Jan 29 - 6:14 PM

Jason Smith suffered a stinger on Tuesday vs. the Bucks, but he is expected to play vs. the Celtics on Friday.

It's not clear where the stinger is located, but it was enough to keep him out of the morning shootaround. Smith only plays minutes in the teens on most nights, but Dewayne Dedmon could take his place in the rotation if he sits out.
Jan 29 - 11:22 AM

Jason Smith played 18 minutes against the Hawks on Monday with two points, three rebounds, one steal and no turnovers on 1-of-5 from the field.

Coach Scott Skiles played Smith a ridiculous 37 minutes in London on Thursday, but he was back down to where he should be and his minutes might have been lower in a close game. Smith is only worth a look in deep leagues.
Jan 18 - 7:33 PM

Jason Smith logged a season-high 37 minutes during Orlando's overtime loss to Toronto on Thursday, tallying 16 points, five boards, four assists and one block.

Smith couldn’t miss during the first half of action, going 8-of-10 from the field, but his play predictably tailed off over the course of the second-half, as he went 0-of-5 from the field through the second-half and overtime. Smith is averaging just 5.9 points per game through 14.3 minutes, so we’ll need to see him do this again and again before recommending him as a pickup in most formats.
Jan 14 - 7:22 PM

Jason Smith (ankle) played 12 minutes on Friday with two points, two rebounds and two assists.

He didn't play well, but at least the oft-injured big man didn't need to miss additional time from his Wednesday ankle sprain. He has very little fantasy value.
Jan 8 - 10:33 PM

Jason Smith (left ankle sprain) is "good to go" for Friday's game vs. the Nets according to coach Scott Skiles.

He tweaked his ankle on Wednesday and did not return, but obviously the injury is very minor. He should see minutes in the teens off the bench on Friday, but he is not a reliable fantasy asset.
Jan 8 - 1:35 PM

Jason Smith (left ankle sprain) will likely play on Friday vs. the Nets.

He suffered the injury on Wednesday and wasn't able to return to the game, so this report confirms that the issue is likely very minor. However, he is averaging just 14.5 minutes per game this season, so this report doesn't have many fantasy implications.
Jan 8 - 11:40 AM

Jason Smith (left ankle sprain) is questionable for Friday's game against the Nets.

Dewayne Dedmon would likely see a few more minutes if Smith misses more time, but neither player belong on fantasy rosters at this point.
Jan 7 - 12:01 PM

Jason Smith (left ankle) will not return on Wednesday.

The Magic will likely be dusting off Dewayne Dedmon here if Smith needs to miss time. This injury shouldn't impact most fantasy owners.
Jan 6 - 8:12 PM

Jason Smith suffered an apparent ankle injury on Wednesday and went to the locker room.

He limped back very slowly under his own power and is probably done for the night. The Magic might have to roll with some more small-ball lineups while he's out.
Jan 6 - 7:52 PM

Jason Smith played 12 minutes against the Heat on Saturday with 10 points, two boards and one turnover.

Well, that Jason Smith love fest from coach Scott Skiles didn't last long. If you picked him up in a very deep league, you can probably cut him loose. He did have some foul issues, so maybe the Smith love fest continues.

Scott Skiles praised Jason Smith, calling him "very valuable" to what the Magic have been doing.

"I always felt like he was a very good team defender and we felt like in a solid defensive system he’d be very good," Skiles said. "He’s really protected the rim for us and he’s been very good at moving around and communicating. He’s been very valuable for us." It's worth noting Skiles recently said he's looking for more ways to play Smith alongside Nikola Vucevic, but J-Boogie isn't an appealing asset.
