  • Pistons' Ish Smith: Scores 15 points Friday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Smith scored 15 points (7-11 FG, 1-1 3 PT) to go along with three rebounds, four assists and two blocks over 22 minutes in Friday's 99-98 win against Oklahoma City. On Friday, Smith shot 63.6 percent en route to leading all bench scorers with 15 points. Smith, who averages 8.5 field goal attempts, has shot 50.0 percent or better in 12-of-18 games as a reserve. To be an effective scorer from the bench, the veteran guard needs to make the most of his limited opportunities on offense. So far, Smith has shot 51.0 percent from the floor for an average of 9.6 points in 19.7 minutes per game. While Smith does not provide a wealth of offense, he has scored in double-digits in 11 games this season with a high water mark of 17 points.

  • Pistons' Ish Smith: Scores season-high 17 points
    By RotoWire Staff

    Smith scored 17 points (7-10 FG, 1-2 3PT, 2-2 FT) to go along with three rebounds, five assists and one steal across 19 minutes in Friday's 111-104 win over Atlanta. Smith led all bench scorers with 17 points en route to the point guard's season-high total. The Detroit guard was especially efficient in his 19 minutes of playing time, sinking 70.0 percent of his shots from the floor. Smith has been a reliable source of bench scoring, tallying at least 10 points in six consecutive games. From the bench, Smith has become a critical source of supplemental scoring for Detroit.

  • Pistons' Ish Smith: Leads bench in scoring Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Smith generated 12 points (6-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt), three rebounds and three assists across 23 minutes in Thursday's 113-93 loss to the Lakers. Smith's scoring haul led the second unit on the night and served as his second straight double-digit scoring effort. The veteran guard has had the hot hand for the majority of the season, and he's especially been locked in over his last three games. Factoring in Tuesday's effort, Smith is shooting 72.7 percent (16-for-22) over that span. While he's firmly behind Reggie Jackson on the point guard depth chart, a bench role that typically affords him minutes in the upper teens at a minimum and his ability to put points on the board keep him viable in deeper formats and as a DFS punt play.

  • Smith tallied two points (1-3 FG), 13 assists, and three rebounds in 22 minutes during Wednesday's 122-101 win over the Timberwolves. Smith had slowed down a bit coming off his incredible preseason. However, he is still averaging 6.4 points, 5.4 assists, 2.2 rebounds, 0.8 steals, and 0.2 blocks in 19.6 minutes through five games. Smith is yet to sink a three-pointer, and the presence of Reggie Jackson restricts his ability to put up gaudy numbers. Unless Jackson suffers an injury, Smith's fantasy value is probably capped to a certain extent, though he's one of the better backup point guards to own.

  • Pistons' Ish Smith: Continues preseason surge
    By RotoWire Staff

    Smith supplied 22 points (10-14 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight assists, three rebounds, two steals, and two blocks in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 116-94 loss to the Raptors. It doesn't mean anything from a fantasy perspective, but Smith was the only Piston to produce a positive Plus-Minus (Plus-7). Meanwhile, Detroit was downright dreadful with starting point guard Reggie Jackson on the court (Minus-29). If Smith keeps playing at the level we've seen thus far in the preseason and Jackson struggles like he did in 2016-17, the current backup could gain a sizable share of the minutes and prove to be the more valuable commodity in some leagues.
