Bulls sign F/C Greg Smith.
Smith had a quiet season with the Rockets before being waived last week, and the Bulls didn't hesitate to clear a spot for him on their roster. He's unlikely to make a dent in the rotation and fantasy owners should continue to ignore him. Apr 14 - 1:33 PM

Greg Smith - F/C - Bulls

Rockets waive F/C Greg Smith.

He's only played in 11 games all season and his campaign was derailed from a knee injury back on Nov. 5. Smith was never really to get back on track and had five different stints on the inactive list.

Greg Smith - F/C - Bulls

Rockets C Greg Smith will have arthroscopic knee surgery.

Smith has been battling knee woes since November, appearing in just 11 games all year. Omer Asik is ahead of Smith on the depth chart anyway.

Greg Smith - F/C - Bulls

Greg Smith (knee) has received clearance to play in game action.

He's out of the rotation right now and is unlikely to get playing time unless the Rockets get into some serious foul trouble. Smith showed some promise as a backup big man to start the season, but his balky knee hash kept him down for much of the season.

Greg Smith - F/C - Bulls

Greg Smith (knee) will not play against the Mavericks on Wednesday.

He was back at practice on Monday and still hasn't been able to suit up since Jan. 11. Smith's knee injury has kept him to just 100 minutes on the season and he has no fantasy value.

Greg Smith - F/C - Bulls

Greg Smith (knee) returned to practice on Monday but his status for Tuesday's game remains uncertain.

Smith's knee has been a season-long issue and he's repeatedly aggravated the injury upon returning, so we're keeping our expectations very low.

Greg Smith - F/C - Bulls

Greg Smith will not play against the Kings on Wednesday.

He'll join Terrence Jones (thigh), Francisco Garcia (knee) and Omer Asik (knee) on the sidelines. Smith has no fantasy value.

Greg Smith - F/C - Bulls

Coach Kevin McHale said at Tuesday's practice that Greg Smith will continue to rest his injured knee Wednesday.

Francisco Garcia and Omer Asik will also be sidelined Wednesday with knee injuries of their own. With Terrence Jones (thigh) questionable for that game, expect the Rockets to lean on Donatas Motiejunas for extended minutes.

Greg Smith - F/C - Bulls

Greg Smith (knee) will not play against the Blazers on Monday.

Smith's knee issues won't go away and the Rockets should probably just shut him down. They're going to be a little shorthanded tonight with Terrence Jones out, so coach Kevin McHale might have to get a little creative with his lineups.

Greg Smith - F/C - Bulls

Greg Smith (knee) will not play for the Rockets on Thursday night.

Smith has some major knee issue and the Rockets are wise to keep him out until he's 100 percent. Terrence Jones has been on a tear and his fantasy owners have to be pretty excited about his increasing fantasy value.
Jan 16 - 9:47 PM
Greg Smith - F/C - Bulls

Greg Smith will not play on Wednesday due to ongoing soreness in his left knee.

Smith has been limited by his left knee all season and it shows no signs of abating, as he's already attempted a few brief comebacks. Leave him on the waiver wire.

Greg Smith - F/C - Bulls

Greg Smith had four points and one rebound off the Rockets' bench on Saturday, his second game back from a knee injury.

He logged 13 minutes and while his return is very helpful for Houston's frontcourt depth, it's only fantasy-relevant in deep leagues.
Jan 11 - 10:40 PM
Greg Smith - F/C - Bulls

Greg Smith returned to action on Friday with four points and three boards in 10 minutes of action.

He missed Wednesday's game due to a knee injury and tonight was just his 10th game on the court this season. The Rockets have him as their backup center and he won't have much fantasy value while Dwight Howard is healthy.
Jan 10 - 11:19 PM
Greg Smith - F/C - Bulls

Greg Smith (knee) is available to play against the Hawks on Friday.

The Rockets kept him out of the lineup on Wednesday and he's been bothered by knee injuries for much of the season. Terrence Jones has been the main option at center behind Dwight Howard on top of his duties at power forward, but Smith's return shouldn't hurt his overall output much.

Greg Smith - F/C - Bulls

Updating a previous item, Greg Smith (knee) will not play against the Lakers on Wednesday.

It was previously reported Smith would not play, but the Rockets will keep him out of the lineup. Smith has dealt with knee problems for much of the season and he has only been healthy enough to play in nine games. Terrence Jones will get most of the minutes at backup center tonight and could have a nice game vs. the weak LA front line.
