Jason Smith didn't return after exiting Wednesday's game in the second half with a left calf contusion, finishing with five points and two rebounds in 16 minutes.
Smith crashed into the basket stanchion prior to exiting. He jogged into the locker room but had his left leg iced when he returned to the bench, and we'll have to wait for updates before determining his status for Game 6 on Friday. If he misses more time, Marcin Gortat's minutes should increase and the Wizards will be forced to run plenty of small lineups. Apr 26 - 8:29 PM

Date:

Jason Smith (knee) looked good in 28 minutes during Game 2, posting eight points, eight boards, two blocks, one assist and one steal.

Ian Mahinmi (calf) is out at least one more game, which leaves Smith with an expanded role as the Wizards' primary backup big man. He failed to score in 13 minutes during Game 1, however, and there should be more reliable DFS options available on Saturday.
Apr 19 - 10:16 PM

Jason Smith (knee) practiced on Tuesday and will suit up for Game 2 on Wednesday vs. Atlanta.

Smith sat out Monday's practice after he was diagnosed with a bruised left knee following Sunday's Game 1 victory. Smith didn't score and grabbed just one rebound in the 13 minutes he played in Game 1.

Jason Smith (knee) sat out of Monday's practice.

Smith was diagnosed with a bruised left knee following Sunday's Game 1 win over the Hawks, but coach Scott Brooks said the Wizards were playing it safe with the veteran and called him day-to-day. With Ian Mahinmi still on the shelf, Smith will likely play through the pain. It helps that the Wizards are off until Wednesday.

Jason Smith was diagnosed with a bruised left knee following Sunday's Game 1 win over the Hawks.

Smith was forced out of Sunday's game after hurting his knee and did not return, but Scott Brooks said that they were just playing it safe with Smith and that he could have gotten back on the court if needed. He ended his evening with one rebound, one block, three turnovers and four fouls in 13 minutes off the bench, and while he should be good to go for Game 2, he's obviously not a fantasy option.

Jason Smith (left knee) is headed to the locker room.

Kent Bazemore crashed into Smith's knee during the closing minutes of the third quarter, and Smith was down in some obvious pain for a few minutes before eventually making his way back to the bench. It's worth noting that Smith was able to walk back to the locker room under his own power, so hopefully he's not dealing with anything too serious.
Apr 16 - 3:15 PM

Jason Smith scored five points in a start for Markieff Morris (ankle) against the Knicks on Thursday with six rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.

Marcin Gortat played great in this game while coach Scott Brooks went with Kelly Oubre as a small-ball four a lot here, so Smith didn't get much run late in this game. His one monster fluke earlier this season has skewed his value as a starter, so this is a fair expectation most nights when Morris is out.
Apr 6 - 10:51 PM

Jason Smith is starting for Markieff Morris (ankle) against the Knicks on Thursday.

It's an expected move for the Wizards. In Smith's previous starts, he averaged 12.5 points, 5.5 boards, 2.0 assists, 2.5 blocks, 1.0 steals and 2.0 treys. He had a ridiculous game in one of those, so expect him to be around 10 points with a handful of boards.
Apr 6 - 7:07 PM

Jason Smith scored a season-high-tying 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting on Tuesday, making a career-high five 3-pointers in 24 minutes.

Smith added five rebounds, two assists, one block and just one turnover, and this was a totally unexpected performance after a DNP-CD vs. the Warriors on Sunday. Discussing his improved perimeter shooting with the Wizards, he said, "I just space out and I'm just sitting there licking my chops." Smith's nightly role is determined by matchups and the whims of coach Scott Brooks.
Apr 5 - 12:08 AM

Jason Smith scored 14 points with eight rebounds and four 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the Clippers on Wednesday.

That puts him at 30 triples on the season, which is double his previous career high in a season. Smith did benefit late in this game from Markieff Morris getting ejected, so the playing time is slightly inflated. He's been in the mix and does play minutes in the teens most nights, but he's not someone fantasy owners should add here.
Mar 30 - 1:29 AM

Jason Smith fouled out in 17 minutes vs. the Celtics on Monday, finishing with 13 points on 5-of-8 shooting.

He returned to the bench with Markieff Morris (illness) back, but he was on his way to a big game until foul trouble ruined his night. He added five rebounds, one assist, one block and three triples, but standard-league owners should look elsewhere while Morris and Marcin Gortat are healthy.
Mar 20 - 11:12 PM

Jason Smith will return to the bench on Monday vs. the Celtics.

This is an expected move with Markieff Morris (illness) returning from a two-game absence. Smith played well in Morris' absence, so he will be back on the radar if Morris or Marcin Gortat ever pick up an injury. For now, he can be dropped in most leagues.
Mar 20 - 6:18 PM

Jason Smith scored eight points with four rebounds, two assists, three blocks and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes against the Hornets on Saturday.

This wasn't quite like his 17-point explosion on Friday, but his fantasy owners will gladly take this one. Morris did travel for this game, so he was close to returning. That suggests Morris should be back on Monday night. If you used Smith this weekend, cash in your chips and go home a winner.
Mar 18 - 9:39 PM

Jason Smith started in place of Markieff Morris (sinus infection) on Friday vs. the Bulls and scored 17 points on 6-of-15 shooting.

The Wizards run a tight rotation and Iah Mahinmi can't really play the four, so Smith was a workhorse tonight with 38 minutes. He racked up seven rebounds, two assists, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers, so he's on the radar as a potential streamer in deeper leagues or DFS if Morris doesn't play on Saturday vs. the Hornets. He likely won't be this good, though.
Mar 17 - 9:40 PM

With Markieff Morris (sinus infection) ruled out, Jason Smth will start for the Wizards on Friday vs. the Bulls.

This will be Smith's first start this season. Smith has played more than 20 minutes eight times this season. He is averaging 10.3 points and 5.4 rebounds in 22.7 minutes over those eight contests. He is difficult to trust going forward assuming Morris will be back soon, but Smith may be worth a plug-and-play in deep leagues if desperate.
