Greg Smith played two minutes off the Mavs' bench on Tuesday, committing one foul with no other stats to his credit.
The Mavs' bench isn't overflowing with big men, but Brandan Wright is the next man up and Smith will have to claw his way into meaningful minutes. That takes him out of the discussion for standard-league value, but his stellar FG percentages might eventually give him specialist appeal in very deep leagues. Oct 28 - 11:08 PM

Date:

The Mavericks have acquired Greg Smith from the Bulls.

Details have yet to be released on the deal, but it's essentially just a salary dumping move for Chicago to make room for Pau Gasol. Smith played 11 games for the Rockets last season before being waived in April. The Bulls then picked him up just before the season ended, and now he will be moved to Dallas. Smith boasts career averages of 5.3 points, and 2.5 rebounds per game, so he's not an option from a fantasy perspective.

Greg Smith is likely to be traded to the Mavericks.

It's just a salary dump with Smith's deal at around $1 million for next season. The Bulls traded for him late in the year after the Rockets gave up on him. Smith had knee trouble for much of the season and maybe a full offseason can help him out.

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.

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.
Apr 10 - 1:49 PM

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.
Feb 28 - 12:56 PM

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.
Feb 19 - 5:15 PM

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.
Jan 29 - 8:07 PM

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.
Jan 27 - 2:57 PM

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.
Jan 22 - 8:04 PM

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.
Jan 21 - 4:41 PM

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 (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 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.
Jan 15 - 1:03 PM

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.
