Rockets' Josh Smith: Goes 0-for-3 from field in series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Josh Smith played six minutes in Wednesday's 114-81 Game 5 loss to the Warriors, providing no points (0-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two assists, one rebound, and one block.

Smith was a virtual non-entity throughout the five-game series, playing more than 10 minutes on just one occasion while turning the ball over five times and grabbing just two rebounds. He wasn't much better in his 23 regular season appearances with Houston Rockets after coming over in a trade from the Clippers in January, averaging 6.6 points (on 34.3% shooting), 2.9 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and 1.6 turnovers across 18.2 minutes. After fizzling out in multiple locations over the last two seasons and failing to show much improvement with his shot selection or defensive effort, Smith's days as a useful rotation piece in the NBA may be over.

Rockets' Josh Smith: Fouls out in 23 minutes Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Josh Smith scored 11 points (3-6 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding three rebounds, three assists, and two steals in 23 minutes during the Houston Rockets ' 129-105 win over the Timberwolves on Monday.

After appearing in only two of 16 March matchups, Smith has at least seen the floor in four of the five games to start April. His minutes have also increased in each contest, but the last time he saw 20 minutes or more was on Feb. 29. It's unclear whether Smith has officially fought his way back into the regular rotation, but there is more reason to trust him in fantasy now given that he has played a combined 60 minutes over the last three games.

Rockets' Josh Smith: Hasn't played in last five games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Josh Smith (coach's decision) has gone unused in each of the Houston Rockets ' last five games.

Both Smith and Terrence Jones seem to have fallen out of favor with interim coach J.B. Bickerstaff, who has inserted Michael Beasley and Montrezl Harrell into the rotation of late to the detriment of Smith and Jones. Over 50 games this season split between the Clippers and Rockets, Smith is averaging 5.9 points and 3.6 rebounds across 15.9 minutes while shooting 35.3 percent from the field, a woeful mark for any player, much less a 6-foot-8 forward. The 30-year-old may be running out of opportunities to stick around in the league while his shooting remains a major issue.

Rockets' Josh Smith: Scores 10 points in loss to Bucks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Josh Smith recorded 10 points (4-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT), three assists, two rebounds, and one steal across 25 minutes in Monday's 128-121 loss to the Bucks.

It was Smith's first double-digit scoring performance since Feb. 2, and over his last 10 contests, the veteran forward is averaging 5.5 points (on 29.6% shooting), 2.7 rebounds, and 1.8 assists. Though Smith continues to hold down a starting role at power forward, if he doesn't discover his shooting stroke quickly, he could cede playing time to Clint Capela (ankle), Donatas Motiejunas, and/or Terrence Jones.

Rockets' Josh Smith: In the starting lineup Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Josh Smith (calf) is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Jazz, Johnathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Smith sat out the fourth quarter of Friday's game against the Suns because of a cramp in his calf, but after a few days off for rest, he's good to go for Tuesday's matchup with the Jazz. He's expected to remain in the starting lineup and shouldn't have any restrictions barring any in-game aggravation to the calf injury. In 12 games with the Houston Rockets this season, Smith is averaging seven points, 3.1 rebounds and two assists over 18 minutes.
