Jason Smith had 14 points, 10 rebounds and four assists on 5-of-9 shooting in 27 minutes on Wednesday.
Smith had been dreadful in his two previous games, scoring four in each of them, but had 25 points and seven boards in his last game before the All-Star break. Maybe he's ready to get it rolling again for the hapless Knicks, but we'll believe it when we see it happen. Feb 25 - 11:09 PM

Jason Smith was a no show for Sunday's blowout loss to the Cavs, scoring just four points on 2-of-6 shooting, to go with four rebounds, two steals, one block and one turnover through 24 minutes of action.

Smith is the starting power forward for the Knicks, but the problem is, he just isn't that talented. The only reason he's starting is because the Knicks are tanking, and with averages of 11.6 points 6.1 rebounds through the month of February, he's nowhere near being a must-own guy in standard leagues.
Feb 22 - 6:25 PM

Jason Smith didn't have a big line against the Heat on Friday with four points, six rebounds, three assists and two turnovers.

He scored 25 points in his last game, but we all knew it wasn't going to be smooth sailing for Jason Smith. His ceiling isn't too high and is really just a points-boards guy with only a few other stats as the starting power forward. If there's a high-upside player sitting on the wire, Smith isn't must-own. He's a decent add, though.
Feb 21 - 1:46 AM

Jason Smith scored a season-high 25 points against the Magic on Wednesday with seven boards and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

He scored 21 in the first half and finished making 10-of-16 from the field tonight. The matchup certainly helped Smith tonight and the Magic gave him plenty of open looks. He has played at least 30 minutes in four of his last five, averaging 13.6 points, 6.8 boards, 2.2 assists and 0.2 blocks in that span. If you need a big man, give him a look because the Knicks are going to need some offense.
Feb 11 - 9:44 PM

Jason Smith scored nine points on 4-of-7 shooting (including a three) with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block on Monday against the Heat.

Smith and Lou Amundson (six points, four rebounds, two assists, three steals, one block) are going to get run for the foreseeable future as long as they can stay healthy. If you're desperate for a big man, give them a look.
Feb 10 - 12:34 AM

Jason Smith scored 14 points with 13 rebounds, three assists and one turnover in 34 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

His numbers were down in his previous 10, averaging 9.2 points, 5.4 boards, 3.2 assists and 1.0 blocks in 29.9 minutes. Smith has been flirting with top 150 value in 2015 and his numbers will go up on the nights Carmelo Anthony sits.
Feb 7 - 10:15 PM

Knicks PF/C Jason Smith posted another solid line with 12 points, seven rebounds and five assists in a tough 97-108 loss to the Celtics on Tuesday.

Smith's physicality and efficient scoring is a big reason New York stayed within reach until the final buzzer. Amare Stoudemire and Andrea Bargnani could eventually pose a threat to Smith's minutes and even while they're sidelined he's a late-round value, averaging 9.1 points, 5.1 boards, 2.6 assists and 1.1 blocks with poor percentages over the past month.
Feb 3 - 10:30 PM

Jason Smith played 30 minutes against the Pacers during a 103-82 loss on Thursday, scoring eight points, seven rebounds, five assists and one steal.

Smith was popped in the mouth a couple times tonight, but he's fine. It was a decent game and he didn't even play in the fourth quarter. He's certainly not the hottest property in fantasy, but he's getting it done over his last five, averaging 10.2 points, 6.6 boards, 3.4 assists, 1.2 blocks, 0.8 steals and 0.6 treys. He's worth a look.
Jan 29 - 10:01 PM

Jason Smith had 11 points, 11 rebounds, six assists and a steal on 5-of-10 shooting in another start on Wednesday.

Smith is quietly playing well for the Knicks, as the tankers give guys heavy minutes who probably have no business getting heavy NBA minutes. Smith is averaging 11.0 points, 5.8 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.6 blocks and a ridiculous 34 minutes a game over his last five, making him worth a look in many leagues. Then again, he's Jason Smith.
Jan 29 - 4:13 AM

Jason Smith was in foul trouble during a 76-71 loss to the Hornets on Saturday, finishing with five points, four rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one turnover.

He did play 32 minutes tonight and it would have been more. Smith has played in at least 32 minutes in four consecutive games and that should continue as long as he's healthy. He's not much of a per-minute guy, but he's worth a look in 14-team leagues.
Jan 24 - 9:50 PM

Jason Smith scored 19 points against the Magic on Friday with five rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

He's apparently in coach Derek Fisher's good graces and has played in at least 32 minutes for three consecutive games. Smith had a grand total of one 3-pointer since the start of the 2010-11, so that part of this game is a shock. He's worth a look for 14-team leagues right now even with Amare Stoudemire coming back Saturday.
Jan 24 - 12:15 AM

Jason Smith started on Thursday with no points, four boards and two blocks in 14 minutes.

He did not start the second half in favor of Lance Thomas. If the Knicks are tanking, Smith has been terrific. In his last nine, he's made just 31.9 percent from the field with 6.8 points, 5.6 boards, 1.6 assists and 0.9 turnovers in 21.6 minutes. Amazingly, he's just 5-of-24 in the paint in that span. Unless your fantasy team is tanking, leave him on the wire.
Jan 15 - 8:13 PM

Jason Smith will start against the Bucks in London on Thursday.

Smith will start in the Knicks' frontcourt alongside Amare Stodemire and Carmelo Anthony on Thursday as the Knicks split minutes between he, Cole Aldrich, and Quincy Acy. Smith has averaged 7.7 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 0.5 steals, and 0.4 blocks in 10 starts this season, so he's not much more than a plug-and-play option in daily and deeper fantasy leagues right now.

Jason Smith will start alongside Jose Calderon, Pablo Prigioni, Tim Hardaway Jr., and Cole Aldrich for the Knicks' Thursday game against the Rockets.

Smith and Quincy Acy will split minutes tonight as some of the few healthy bodies left on the Knicks' roster, but neither guy makes for a great play in daily leagues.
Jan 8 - 6:54 PM

Jason Smith played 21 minutes and hit 3-of-8 shots and 7-of-10 free throws for 13 points and five rebounds.

He's not going to do much outside of score some points and grab a few boards, meaning Cole Aldrich (11 points, 7 rebounds) is a much better Knicks option right now.
