  • Nets' Dennis Smith: Drops dud Tuesday

    Smith notched zero points (0-2 FG, 0-2 3Pt), one rebound and two assists over 15 minutes during Tuesday's 118-110 loss to Boston.

    Smith did his best magician impression Tuesday, delivering a flawless vanishing act. For anyone who streamed him in on a low-volume night, you were rewarded with a hat full of nothing. Despite the loss of Spencer Dinwiddie, the Nets now have a relatively healthy Ben Simmons and newly-acquired Dennis Schroder to soak up the majority of the backcourt minutes. Smith can be viewed as a streaming option for both assists and steals but as we saw here, his floor is dangerously low.

  • Nets' Dennis Smith: Productive off bench Monday

    Smith closed with 12 points (4-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-5 FT), eight rebounds, five assists, two blocks and two steals over 31 minutes off the bench during Monday's 109-98 loss to the Warriors.

    After missing the Nets' prior game with a minor foot issue, Smith produced one of his better all-around fantasy lines of the campaign. The journeyman guard is playing for his sixth team in seven seasons, and it's his defensive ability that has kept him employed. The 26-year-old has recorded multiple steals in nine of his last 13 games, averaging 7.7 points, 4.5 assists, 4.3 boards and 1.7 pilfers in 22.0 minutes a contest over that stretch.

  • Nets' Dennis Smith: Available for Monday's game

    Smith (foot) is available for Monday's game against the Warriors, C.J. Holmes of the New York Daily News reports.

    Smith was probable on the Nets' initial injury report due to right foot soreness, and he's officially been cleared to suit up Monday. Over his last five appearances, he's averaged 5.8 points, 3.6 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 1.4 steals in 19.4 minutes per game.

  • Nets' Dennis Smith: Listed as probable

    Smith is probable for Monday's game against Golden State, Erik Slater of ClutchPoints.com reports.

    Smith missed Saturday's blowout win over Philadelphia but should return to action Monday. However, he's played 20-plus minutes just once over his last eight appearances, averaging 6.9 points, 3.3 assists, 3.1 rebounds and 1.5 steals during that stretch.

  • Nets' Dennis Smith: Ruled out for Saturday

    Smith (foot) won't play Saturday against the 76ers, Evan Barnes of Newsday reports.

    Smith was added to the injury report as questionable due to right foot soreness, and the team has since announced that he'll be held out of Saturday's action. Look for Cam Thomas and Lonnie Walker to pick up extra minutes in Smith's absence.

  • Nets' Dennis Smith: Questionable for Saturday

    Smith is questionable for Saturday's game against the 76ers due to right foot soreness, Meghan Triplett of YES Network reports.

    Smith played 19 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Suns, posting four points, five rebounds, two assists and one steal. It's unclear when he suffered the injury, but if he misses time, more reserve minutes will open up for Lonnie Walker.

  • Nets' Dennis Smith: Closes out narrow loss

    Smith finished with eight points (3-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, five assists, four steals and one block across 32 minutes in Monday's 96-95 overtime loss to the Heat.

    The 32 minutes were a season-high total for Smith, who notably closed out the game as the Nets' point guard over starter Spencer Dinwiddie. With Dinwiddie limited to just 20 minutes Monday and now having been held under 30 minutes five times in the Nets' last six games, Smith appears to be encroaching on his role. While he shouldn't be considered a reliable source of scoring even if he supplants Dinwiddie on the top unit or continues to see the larger share of minutes, Smith, at the very least, profiles as a strong streaming option for steals and assists. He's also shown the ability to provide above-average rebounding production for a guard.

  • Nets' Dennis Smith: Posts first double-double off bench

    Smith racked up 10 points (3-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds, 10 assists, one block and two steals over 29 minutes before fouling out of Sunday's 134-127 overtime loss to the Trail Blazers.

    Smith led the Nets in assists to go along with a pair of steals and a double-digit point total en route to his first double-double of the year. Smith handed out at least 10 assists for the first time of the season, previously holding a season-high assist mark of eight, which he set Dec. 27. Smith has finished with at least 10 points and five assists in five games this year.

  • Nets' Dennis Smith: Shines off bench Friday

    Smith totaled 13 points (6-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt), 12 rebounds, seven assists and two steals across 25 minutes during Friday's 124-115 win over the Thunder.

    Smith struggled with his shot from beyond the arc, but that's perhaps the only issue he encountered in one of his best personal displays in recent memory. Smith ended just three assists away from recording a double-double, and while he's not going to steal the starting point guard role away from Spencer Dinwiddie any time soon, he might be in line for an uptick in minutes given how productive he's looked off the bench of late. Over his last eight outings (one start), Smith is averaging 8.4 points, 4.6 assists, 3.9 rebounds and 1.1 steals across 21.1 minutes per game.

  • Nets' Dennis Smith: Cleared to play

    Smith (back) is available for Friday's game against Oklahoma City, Erik Slater of ClutchPoints.com reports.

    As expected, Smith has been upgraded from probable to available and will suit up after missing the previous game due to back soreness. He should serve as the primary backup to Spencer Dinwiddie.
