Smith (COVID-19 protocols) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Rockets.
Smith and five other Wizards players remain sidelined Tuesday due to the NBA's health and safety protocols, and there's a strong chance they're also unavailable Wednesday at New Orleans.
Smith (COVID-19 protocols) is out Sunday against the Spurs.
Smith, among five others, is out for health and safety protocols. The Wizards will have between eight and 11 players available for Sunday.
Smith has been ruled out for Friday's game at Milwaukee due to the NBA's health and safety protocols.
The Wizards haven't played since Jan. 11 due to a COVID-19 outbreak, but the team is poised to retake the court Friday with Smith and five other players unavailable due to the protocol. According to Fred Katz of The Athletic, coach Scott Brooks doesn't expect any of the players in the COVID-19 protocol to play on the upcoming four-game road trip, so Smith could be unavailable until at least Jan. 29 against the Hawks. It's worth keeping an eye on the Wizards' injury report for the near future.
Smith is averaging 7.4 points, 4.2 assists and 3.6 rebounds across his last five appearances.
Smith is not expected to see heavy minutes off the bench as Russell Westbrook's backup, but he is certainly making the most of the minutes he has at his disposal. Washington's game against the Jazz on Wednesday has been postponed, meaning Smith's next chance to take the court will come Friday at Detroit. He could be a viable waiver pickup in deep formats and makes a decent streaming alternative whenever Westbrook is sidelined due to either injury or rest purposes.
Smith recorded five points (2-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt), nine assists and six rebounds over 21 minutes in Friday's 130-109 win over the Timberwolves.
Smith hasn't generated much production on the scoreboard early in the season, but he dished out a season-high nine assists against Minnesota on Friday. While coming off the bench in the first six games of the year, Smith is averaging 4.7 points, 3.8 assists and 3.2 rebounds over 18.5 minutes per contest.
Smith (lower body) doesn't appear on the Wizards' injury report ahead of Thursday's preseason game against the Pistons.
Smith is ready to make his preseason debut after the lower-leg injury prevented him from playing in Sunday's 119-114 loss to Brooklyn. With Russell Westbrook (rest) set to sit out Thursday, Smith could pick up the start at point guard and handle most of the minutes at the position.
Smith will not play in Sunday's exhibition contest against the Nets due to lower body soreness, Ava Wallace of The Washington Post reports.
It appears training camp has left Smith a little sore, and the Wizards will exercise caution with the veteran guard. He is expected to compete with Raul Neto for the backup point guard role behind Russell Westbrook this season, but Troy Brown could potentially get some looks there at times as well.
Smith recorded 11 points (5-13 FG, 1-2 FT), eight assists, three rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 30 minutes during Thursday's 96-90 seeding game finale loss to the Celtics.
Smith put on strong performances in the bubble, averaging 14.6 points, 5.9 assists and 3.9 rebounds coming into Thursday's finale. He's under contract for one more season with Washington but will presumably slide into a backup role with John Wall (Achilles) set to reclaim his starting spot.
Smith finished with 19 points (8-15 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three boards and five assists in 26 minutes of a 126-113 loss to Milwaukee on Tuesday.
Smith made it eight consecutive games scoring in double figures in his team's loss. The ninth-year vet continues to be a reliable option for the Wizards despite his team's struggles that have seen them eliminated from the playoffs. They'll finish the season against Boston on Thursday.
Smith went for 10 points (3-7 FG, 4-4 FT), four assists, three rebounds, one steal and one block in 22 minutes during Sunday's loss against the Thunder.
Smith couldn't repeat what he did Friday against the Pelicans -- 18 points, 10 assists -- but he was serviceable. The veteran, who has started the Wizards' last four games at point guard, has scored in double digits in every bubble game so far, rounding out his stat line with 6.0 assists and 4.0 rebounds per contest.
Smith tallied 18 points (7-16 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 assists, six rebounds and four steals in 32 minutes during Friday's 118-107 loss to the Pelicans.
The Wizards are playing with an eye towards next season and, accordingly, have given Smith three straight starts as the season winds down. The 32-year-old has performed admirably, but the double-double he put up here was his best game since the NBA restarted. He'll look to continue that momentum against Oklahoma City on Sunday.
Smith will get the starting nod at point guard Monday against Indiana, Ava Wallace of the Washington Post reports.
Shabazz Napier started the first two seeding games, but coach Scott Brooks will roll with Smith on Monday, saying he wants to see how both guards function with different units. Smith played 27 and 28 minutes off the bench in the Wizards' first two games, so his workload likely won't increase dramatically.
Smith supplied 14 points (5-12 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five assists, four rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 28 minutes during Sunday's 118-110 loss to the Nets.
Smith continues to do an impressive job spearheading the team's second unit. He turned in a solid showing against the Suns on Friday as well, finishing with 17 points, seven dimes and four boards in 27 minutes, and Smith will seek to keep it rolling during Monday's contest against the Pacers.
Smith delivered 10 points (4-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three assists, two rebounds and two steals across 19 minutes in Wednesday's 89-82 scrimmage loss to the Nuggets.
A healthy Smith is pleasant news for the Wizards, who are without the services of John Wall (Achilles) and Bradley Beal (shoulder). Smith missed the last four games in March due to a left hamstring injury, but he appeared to play pain-free Wednesday. Expect Smith and Shabazz Napier to split point guard duties during the restart. Napier drew the start Wednesday, though he played just 17 minutes to Smith's 19.
Smith (hamstring) will remain out Tuesday against the Knicks.
Smith's sore left hamstring will cost him a fourth consecutive game, meaning Shabazz Napier should retain his hold on the lion's share of point guard minutes. If Jerome Robinson (Achilles) is cleared to play, he could also see a boost in playing time.
Smith (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Heat.
Smith will miss his third straight contest Sunday due to left hamstring soreness after playing in the first 60 games of the season. Shabazz Napier will continue working as Washington's primary point guard in his absence.
Smith (hamstring) will not play Friday against the Hawks.
After playing in the first 60 games of the season, Smith will sit for a second straight contest as he nurses a left hamstring issue. His next chance to take the court will come Sunday against Miami. In the meantime, Shabazz Napier should continue to handle primary point guard duties for Washington.
Smith (hamstring) will not play Wednesday against Portland.
As expected, a tight left hamstring will keep Smith from taking the court Wednesday. In his absence, Shabazz Napier should handle the majority of point guard duties, while Gary Payton could see an uptick in minutes.
Smith is doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Blazers due to left hamstring tightness, Jamie Goldberg of The Oregonian reports.
Smith apparently picked up the hamstring issue during Tuesday's loss to the Kings, during which he finished with 13 points, three rebounds and five assists in 20 minutes. In his presumed absence, Shabazz Napier should handle the majority of ball handling duties, while Gary Payton could see an uptick in playing time.
Smith will move to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Nets, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Smith has been the starter since the trade deadline, but he'll move to the bench as the Wizards insert Shabazz Napier at point guard. Smith is coming off of a decent showing Monday against Milwaukee, when he finished with 13 points, seven assists, two rebounds and two steals.
