Smith (groin) is available for Monday's Game 4 versus Philadelphia.
The 32-year-old was considered questionable with a groin issue but is ready to play Monday with Washington facing elimination. Smith has averaged 7.7 points, 3.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.3 steals in 22.0 minutes off the bench through the first three games of the series.
Smith (groin) is considered questionable for Game 4 against the 76ers on Monday, Marc J. Spears of ESPN.com reports.
Smith went to the locker room with a shoulder injury in Game 3 but ended up returning to the game. His groin injury is new, and another update regarding the severity of the injury should come out soon. If Smith is unable to play, expect Garrison Mathews and Raul Neto to see extended minutes, especially if Russell Westbrook (ankle) is unable to play.
Smith (shoulder) is available to return to Saturday's Game 3 against the 76ers, Malika Andrews of ESPN.com reports.

Smith went to the locker room with a left shoulder injury during Saturday's Game 3 against the 76ers, Malika Andrews of ESPN.com reports.
A trainer was working on Smith's shoulder for several minutes before he went to the locker room. He should be considered questionable to return.
Smith totaled 17 points (6-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block in Tuesday's play-in loss to the Celtics.
It was perhaps the best game of the season for Smith, who kept the Wizards in the game with a strong run in the second quarter. Smith finished plus-5 in his 26 minutes of action, while Bradley Beal was minus-20 and Russell Westbrook went minus-19. With this fine effort, Smith tied his season high in rebounds while setting a new season high in points.
Smith compiled 14 points (7-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt), eight rebounds, seven assists and one steal in 32 minutes during Sunday's 115-110 victory over Charlotte.
Smith saw plenty of run off the bench as the Wizards stormed home to snatch victory. With Raul Neto (hamstring) on the sidelines, Smith stepped into a sizeable role and came through with the goods. He has actually been a sneaky source of value over the past four games, and he is hitting form at just the right time with the play-in tournament now beckoning.
Smith posted 16 points (6-8 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five assists and three rebounds in Saturday night's win over Detroit.
Going up against one of his many former teams, Smith posted his highest scoring total of the season in 24 minutes of action. He's carved out a nice role as one of the first guards off the bench, but Smith doesn't see quite enough minutes (19.8 MPG over his last nine games) to warrant fantasy consideration in most formats.
Smith mustered 12 points (5-8 FG, 2-2 3Pt), six rebounds and two assists across 22 minutes off the bench in Saturday's loss against the Suns.
Smith was one of three Washington players that scored in double digits in this one, and the veteran point guard ended just one point away from tying his season-best scoring output. Smith has only made one start this season, and with the emergence of Raul Neto as a backcourt alternative if one of Russell Westbrook or Bradley Beal (hip) are out, Smith's upside for fantasy purposes is almost minimal -- even if he's capable of putting up decent numbers off the bench on any given night.
Smith totaled four points (2-5 FG), two rebounds, two assists and two turnovers in 19 minutes during Friday's 110-107 victory over the Warriors.
Smith missed a month and a half because of a quadriceps injury, but he's averaging 19.3 minutes since returning. The production has been sporadic, but it is good to see him back on the court. Garrison Mathews (13) and Raul Neto (seven) both played fewer minutes than Smith on Friday, and both have seen their playing time slowly dwindle in every game since the journeyman's return.
Smith will play limited minutes Saturday against the Mavericks, Ava Wallace of The Washington Post reports.
Smith has been out since Valentine's Day, so his workload being restricted isn't surprising. Once he's back in the swing of things, he has upside for minutes in the low-to-mid 20s.
Smith (quadriceps) is available for Saturday's game against the Wizards.
The Wizards have been relatively quiet on Smith's recovery until this point, so his availability for Saturday comes as a bit of a surprise. He's been out since Valentine's Day, so we should expect him to be on a minutes limit in his first game back.
Smith will miss the next 6-to-8 weeks after being diagnosed with a proximal injury to his right quadriceps Wednesday.
The 32-year-old missed the last two games with the injury, and he's now expected to be sidelined until at least early April. Smith's return timeline could receive additional clarity when he's re-evaluated in about three weeks. Raul Neto should continue to handle backup duties at point guard for the Wizards.
Smith (quadriceps) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.
The 32-year-old continues to deal with a strained right quad and will be sidelined for the third straight game. Raul Neto is expected to handle the backup minutes at point guard behind starter Russell Westbrook with Smith sidelined.
Wizards head coach Scott Brooks confirmed that Smith (quadriceps) won't be available for Sunday's game against the Celtics or Monday's game against the Rockets, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Smith had previously only been ruled out for the front end of the back-to-back set with the strained right quad, but the Wizards have now made it official that he won't be an option for either contest. Look for Raul Neto to absorb all the available backup minutes behind starting point guard Russell Westbrook for however long Smith is sidelined.
Smith (quadriceps) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Celtics.
Smith wasn't expected to play Sunday after leaving Friday's matchup against the Knicks due to right quadriceps tightness. He'll officially be held out, and Raul Neto and Troy Brown could see increased run for the Wizards in his absence.
Smith (quadriceps) isn't expected to play Sunday against the Celtics, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Smith was scoreless to begin Friday's contest, and he'll be unable to return during the second half due to a quad issue. Prior to his departure, he tallied zero points (0-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt), five assists, two rebounds and one assist over 12 minutes. It's not yet clear whether he'll be available Sunday against Boston.
Smith received stitches around his mouth but is available to return Wednesday against the Raptors, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
The 32-year-old had two assists and one rebound in four minutes during the first half before being hit in the mouth and heading to the locker room. Smith apparently avoided a serious injury and is good to go after getting the laceration stitched up.
Smith will come off the bench Friday against the Heat, Ava Wallace of The Washington Post reports.
With Russell Westbrook (rest) back in action Friday, Smith will resume his usual role off the bench. When coming off the bench this season, Smith is averaging 6.2 points, 4.6 assists and 3.4 rebounds in 20.2 minutes.
Smith totaled zero points (0-8 FG), six assists, four rebounds and one steal over 27 minutes in Wednesday's 103-100 win over the Heat.
Smith joined the starting five Wednesday for the first time this season and had plenty of shot volume against Miami, but he was unable to convert on any of his field goal attempts. He generated modest production through assists and rebounds, but he's now totaled just three points over the last two contests.
