Jason Smith (knee) played 27 minutes in his return on Wednesday, scoring five points with 10 boards, one assist and one block.

Smith picked up extra minutes with Nikola Vucevic benched after halftime, and he made the most of the opportunity. He's not a viable target in standard leagues unless Vuc gets hurt.

Jason Smith (knee) will be available to play Wednesday against the Timberwolves.

He'll take away some minutes from Channing Frye, but he won't see enough floor time to matter in almost any format.
Nov 18 - 5:19 PM

Jason Smith (knee) is probable to play Wednesday against the Timberwolves.

He was a full participant during Monday's practice, so it's looking like Smith will make his return to the lineup today after spending the past four games on the sidelines. He'll likely cut into Channing Frye's minutes, but he's not bringing enough to the stat sheet in limited minutes to warrant consideration in most league.
Nov 18 - 12:00 PM

Jason Smith (left knee soreness) was able to return to practice on Monday.

After dealing with the injury for about a week now, Smith was finally about to get back on the floor. Without the veteran big man available, Channing Frye and Aaron Gordon have seen more minutes, and that's something that should continue regardless of Smith's status. The veteran big man is really just an insurance policy.

Jason Smith (left knee soreness) will not play on Saturday vs. the Wizards.

Channing Frye drew the start on Friday and will likely continue to start, while Aaron Gordon will see a boost in minutes off the bench. Smith can be cut almost everywhere.
Nov 14 - 9:12 AM

Jason Smith (knee) will not play on Friday vs. the Jazz.

Given Smith's injury history, don't expect the Magic to rush him back before he is 100 percent. Channing Frye is starting at power forward tonight, while Aaron Gordon should hopefully get a chance to see more playing time as well. Smith can be dropped in almost all leagues.
Nov 13 - 11:26 AM

Jason Smith (knee) will not play on Wednesday against the Lakers.

He's had a slew of knee injuries in his career, so he probably won't be back anytime soon. Nikola Vucevic is on the active roster and he has a chance to play. If not, it'll be Dewayne Dedmon and Channing Frye getting minutes at center.
Nov 11 - 5:24 PM

Jason Smith (knee) sat out Tuesday's practice.

Smith is looking doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. the Lakers, and it'll likely be Channing Frye picking up some extra minutes with Smith on the sidelines. Frye played 22 minutes on Monday, scoring 14 points with four 3-pointers and eight rebounds, so he'd be someone to consider in DFS on Wednesday with a favorable matchup against the Lakers.
Nov 10 - 3:35 PM

Jason Smith (knee) has been ruled out of Monday's game against the Pacers.

Smith injured himself as he was trying to take a charge against the Sixers, but X-rays showed no fracture and he's considered day-to-day. Aaron Gordon is in line to earn a few extra minutes in Monday's contest against a small-ball Pacers squad.
Nov 9 - 12:08 PM

Jason Smith (ankle) is available to play on Wednesday vs. the Wizards.

There is no guarantee that he sees the floor tonight, but this confirms that his ankle issue is likely very minor. He can be ignored in fantasy leagues.
Oct 28 - 5:32 PM

Jason Smith (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

Smith tweaked his ankle on Monday but there is a decent chance that he will give it a go tonight. That being said, Smith is not worth a look in almost any fantasy league.
Oct 28 - 11:35 AM

Jason Smith tweaked his ankle at Monday's practice.

He's at the doctor getting the ankle examined. If Smith is forced to miss any time, Channing Frye and Dewayne Dedmon would be thrust into larger roles.
Oct 26 - 1:43 PM

Jason Smith (rest) will sit out Thursday's preseason game vs. the Pacers.

The Magic are currently on the second-game of a back-to-back set, so they're giving some of their veteran guys the night off. Channing Frye and C.J. Watson will join Smith on the sidelines as healthy scratches.

Unrestricted free agent Jason Smith has signed with the Orlando Magic.

The deal is reportedly a one-year, $4.3 million contract, but he'll have a tough time cracking the rotation in Orlando. In an ideal situation with the Knicks last season, Smith was only able to compile averages of 8.0 points and 4.0 rebounds per game. He won't have any fantasy value in Orlando.
