Jason Smith will exercise his player option and return to the Wizards next year.
It's a $5.5 million player option for the 32-year-old big man. Smith isn't in the rotation all the time and he's mostly known for his goofy dance moves. The Wizards could look to make some moves involving Marcin Gortat, but Smith's playing time likely won't jump up too much regardless. May 16 - 5:11 PM

Jason Smith picked up another DNP-CD vs. the Cavaliers on Thursday.

Smith has battled a few ailments this season and he missed time before the break with an illness. He's healthy now and his exclusion from the rotation was simply due to coach Scott Brooks' rotations, so we're taking him off the injury report.

Jason Smith (illness) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game vs. the Knicks.

Minimal fantasy impact here, as Smith is not a part of the Wizards regular rotation.

Jason Smith (illness) did not practice on Monday.

He's not in the rotation anyways, so this doesn't have any fantasy implications. Consider him questionable for Wednesday's game vs. New York.
Feb 12 - 1:07 PM

Jason Smith returned to the Wizards' rotation on Wednesday, but he played just four minutes to finish scoreless without any stats in four minutes.

Smith began 2018 with three straight DNP-CDs and he's been out of the rotation more often than not this season. He's not even a blip on the fantasy radar while Marcin Gortat, Ian Mahinmi and Markieff Morris are healthy.
Jan 10 - 11:58 PM

Jason Smith barely saw the court on Tuesday, committing two fouls with no other stats in two minutes of action.

Smith picked up a DNP-CD on Sunday, and he would have again tonight if Markieff Morris and Mike Scott hadn't both committed three fouls in the first half. He'll only be on the fantasy radar if Marcin Gortat or Ian Mahinmi get hurt.

Jason Smith (knee) played 28 minutes on Tuesday vs. the Nets with nine points, five rebounds, one block and one steal.

Ian Mahinmi (knee) was out, so Smith was back in the rotation after a three-game absence. Smith hasn't been healthy lately either and had an MRI last week, but it's a good sign that he played 28 minutes. Marcin Gortat has been pretty bad and played just 18 minutes in the loss, so Smith could have sneaky value in very deep leagues if Mahinmi misses more time.

An MRI taken on Jason Smith's knee came back clean, according to head coach Scott Brooks.

Smith tweaked his knee slipping on a wet spot on the floor during the fourth quarter of Monday's loss to the Jazz and didn't play on Wednesday, but it sounds like he's just day-to-day. There's no fantasy impact here, though, as Smith is a negligible part of the rotation in Washington.

Jason Smith scored two points with two rebounds and two blocks in 10 minutes against the Mavs on Tuesday.

After the game, coach Scott Brooks said Smith deserves more playing time. "I need to figure out how to play him more," Brooks said. Smith has played center and power forward, so it's possible he gets run at both spots. Regardless, he's probably not going to play over 20 minutes on a consistent basis.

Jason Smith will move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Suns, with Otto Porter (illness) unavailable.

Through three starts last season, Smith compiled averages of 10.0 points, 5.7 boards, 1.7 triples, 1.0 steal and 2.0 blocks per contest on 37.0 percent shooting, so he could be someone to throw out there as a deep league streamer or punt play in daily leagues. He won't have any long-term value, though, with Markieff Morris (hernia) expected back on Friday.

Jason Smith (sprained right shoulder) came off the bench on Wednesday for two points, two rebounds and one block in eight minutes.

Otto Porter fouled out of this game in 36 minutes, finishing with 12 points, three boards, three assists and two steals. With Markieff Morris still recovering from sports hernia surgery, that left Smith and Mike Scott (four points, eight boards in 25 minutes) as the only true PFs available. Even healthy, Smith isn't an option outside of the deepest leagues.

Jason Smith (sprained right shoulder) will return to action vs. the Lakers on Wednesday, but he will not start.

Otto Porter will earn another start at PF, with Kelly Oubre staying at SF.

Jason Smith (sprained right shoulder) will not play Monday vs. the Nuggets.

Smith initially injured his shoulder in the season opener last week, and appears to be making progress, but is still day-to-day. The Wiz will again start Kelly Oubre at small forward and Otto Porter at power forward on Monday night. Oubre logged 35 minutes as a starter in Washington's previous contest, finishing with four points and seven boards.

Jason Smith (sprained right shoulder) was unable to practice on Saturday.

Smith was a game-time decision heading into Friday's game vs. the Pistons but ended up sitting out. The Wiz don't play again until Monday night, so Smith has a couple of days to recuperate. If he is unable to play Monday vs. the Nuggets, Kelly Oubre would likely draw another start, with Otto Porter starting at power forward once again.
Sat, Oct 21, 2017 12:51:00 PM

Coach Scott Brooks said Jason Smith (sprained right shoulder) will not play Friday vs. the Pistons, and that Kelly Oubre would be inserted into the starting lineup.

Smith injured the shoulder in the season opener on Wednesday and was unable to return. Fortunately, the MRI revealed no structural damage and he was listed day-to-day, but he's not yet ready to return. Otto Porter is going to shift over to power forward to replace Smith, while Oubre starts at small forward. Oubre played 33 minutes off the bench on Wednesday and should log over 30 minutes again on Friday.
