Jason Smith (wrist, elbow) will play on Monday vs. the Bucks.
Smith had a bad fall on Dec. 23 and he did have X-rays on his wrist and elbow, but he's been cleared to play and there's no word of any limitations. However, he's averaging just 10.8 minutes per game on the season and has zero fantasy value. Mon, Dec 26, 2016 06:46:00 PM

Jason Smith (hamstring) will be available to play Monday vs. the Pacers.

Apparently the hamstring injury will only end up costing Smith one game on the sidelines. He should be able to flirt with minutes in the teens tonight sans Ian Mahinmi (knee), but he won't be on the court enough to make a difference in most leagues.

Jason Smith (right hamstring) will be a game-time decision for Monday's matchup with the Pacers.

Smith was originally listed as questionable, so we're not all that optimistic that he'll take the court tonight. With Ian Mahinmi (knee) on the sidelines, Daniel Ochefu could see limited minutes in the rotation, while Marcin Gortat will likely play as close to 40 minutes as possible. Smith is not a fantasy option in any setting.

Jason Smith (hamstring) is questionable for Monday's game vs. Indiana.

Ian Mahinmi (knee) has already been ruled out, so Daniel Ochefu could be the backup center again on Monday. Smith missed Sunday's game vs. the Clippers and Ochefu played nine minutes in his absence while Marcin Gortat played 39. Hamstring injuries can linger, so the Wizards might play it safe with Smith.

Jason Smith (strained right hamstring) will not play on Sunday vs. the Clippers.

Marcin Gortat will have to log heavy minutes Sunday with Ian Mahinmi (right knee) also out. In addition to Gortat, Markieff Morris and Andrew Nicholson should get a slight bump as well. Smith belongs on the wire in most leagues.

Jason Smith (strained right hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Clippers.

Smith was injured in the second quarter of Friday's game and did not return. If Smith does not play, Marcin Gortat could see heavy minutes (he played a game-high 38 minutes on Friday). Markieff Morris and Andrew Nicholson may also see an uptick in playing time.

Jason Smith strained his right hamstring in the second quarter of Friday night's game vs. the Pistons.

Smith tweaked his hamstring while playing defense underneath his own basket. He had scored a season-high 12 points and grabbed seven rebounds off the bench on Wednesday, but it appears unlikely that he'll return to Friday's contest. Markieff Morris and Andrew Nicholson should see a slight uptick in minutes is Smith misses time.

Jason Smith came off the bench on Wednesday for 12 points on 5-of-9 shooting, adding seven rebounds, three steals, two assists and two turnovers in 18 minutes.

Kelly Oubre started with Markieff Morris (foot) out of commission tonight, leaving the Wizards' bench even thinner than usual. Smith has been scorching lately, shooting 63.2 percent in his previous six games, but there's a huge caveat -- he attempted just 3.2 shots per game in that span. He belongs on your waiver wire as long as Markieff is day-to-day.

Jason Smith scored two points with one rebound in five minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday.

He went to the locker room on two different occasions today, but there was no reported injury. Smith should be able to suit up the next time out, but has very little value.
Thu, Dec 8, 2016 10:45:00 PM

Jason Smith started the second half for injured Markieff Morris (ankle, day-to-day) on Saturday, but played just 10 minutes for four points and one rebound.

If Morris misses time, it could be Kelly Oubre who soaks up his minutes, as Smith was pretty invisible out there tonight. Oubre played 15 minutes and scored two points with three rebounds, so Markieff's replacement, if one is needed, doesn't look like someone you'll want to target in fantasy.

Jason Smith is available to play on Thursday against the Hawks.

He saw some starts at power forward while Markieff Morris was out, but he'll slide over to center with Ian Mahinmi (knee) out. Smith won't have much value.
Thu, Oct 27, 2016 07:13:00 PM

Jason Smith (oblique) will not suit up for Tuesday's preseason game against the Cavs.

Smith is going to be backing up Marcin Gortat this season, meaning he's not going to be a realistic option in almost any setting.
Tue, Oct 18, 2016 03:01:00 PM

Jason Smith (oblique) will not play vs. the Kings on Saturday.

Following the news that Ian Mahinmi (knee surgery) will miss 4-6 weeks, Smith will take over as the backup center behind Marcin Gortat. Gortat should play around 32 minutes per night, so Smith won't be able to make an impact in most fantasy leagues.
Sat, Oct 15, 2016 12:16:00 PM

Jason Smith has agreed to a three-year, $16 million deal with the Wizards.

The Wizards are clearly focused on adding some frontcourt depth and have already signed Ian Mahinmi and Andrew Nicholson to long-term deals this summer. Markieff Morris and Marcin Gortat are obviously going to start, so the best-case scenario for Smith in Washington is for him to see minutes in the teens.
Tue, Jul 5, 2016 07:34:00 PM

Jason Smith scored six points with three rebounds, one assist and no turnovers in eight minutes against the Pacers on Thursday.

He will be losing playing time with Nikola Vucevic back. Plus, Dewayne Dedmon has outplayed him, too. Smith can be left on the wire.
