Knicks' Dennis Smith: Active Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (quad) is active for Wednesday's game against the Jazz, Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News reports.

As expected, Smith will be available after missing a string of games with a quad injury. The former lottery pick has appeared in only one game thus far, logging 18 minutes and finishing with four points, two boards and two assists in a Dec. 26 loss to the Sixers.

Knicks' Dennis Smith: Probable for Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (quadriceps) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Jazz.

Smith looks like he has a good chance to return from a five-game absence due to a bruised left quad. Smith played 18 minutes in his lone appearance this season, and his possible return could impact the likes of Immanuel Quickley and Austin Rivers.

Knicks' Dennis Smith: Out as expected Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (quadriceps) won't play Monday against the Hawks.

Smith was considered doubtful for Monday's contest, so it's no surprise to see him ruled out. The 23-year-old will miss his fifth straight game with his next chance to take the court coming Wednesday versus the Jazz.

Knicks' Dennis Smith: Unlikely to play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (quadriceps) is doubtful for Monday's game in Atlanta.

The 23-year-old has missed the past four games and is unlikely to retake the court Monday. Assuming he's unavailable, Smith's next chance to play will be Wednesday against the Jazz.

Knicks' Dennis Smith: Out vs. Pacers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (quad) will not play Saturday against the Pacers, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

Smith will miss a fourth straight game due to a bruised left quad. It's not clear when he'll be able to return, but he remains day-to-day.

December 30, 2020 02:24 PM
Knicks' Dennis Smith: Out vs. Raptors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (quadriceps) is out Thursday against the Raptors.

Smith continues to deal with a left quad bruise and will miss a third straight contest Thursday. His next chance to take the court arrives Saturday against the Pacers.

December 28, 2020 02:56 PM
Knicks' Dennis Smith: Out vs. Cavs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (quad) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Cavs.

Smith will not travel with the team to Cleveland, and he'll instead remain in New York to receive treatment on his bruised quad. The expectation, however, is that Smith will meet up with the team at some point during its four-game road trip, which continues Thursday in Toronto and also includes matchups in Indiana (Saturday) and Atlanta (Monday).

Knicks' Dennis Smith: Won't suit up against Bucks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (quadriceps) won't play Sunday against Milwaukee, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

Smith was questionable leading up to Sunday's game, but he won't be able to take the court while dealing with a bruised right quadriceps. The 23-year-old played 18 minutes Saturday against the 76ers, totaling four points, two rebounds, two assists and one steal. His next chance to play will be Tuesday against Cleveland.

December 27, 2020 02:00 PM
Knicks' Dennis Smith: Status uncertain for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Knicks list Smith as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bucks with a left quadriceps bruise.

The same injury rendered Smith questionable ahead of Saturday's game against the 76ers, but he was cleared to make his season debut in the Knicks' 109-89 loss. He entered the rotation as the backup to starting point guard Elfrid Payton, playing 18 minutes and recording four points (1-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, two assists and one steal. Austin Rivers (groin) remains out and Immanuel Quickley (hip) is doubtful for Sunday's contest, so Smith should again play on the second unit if he can overcome his own quad issue.

Knicks' Dennis Smith: Not on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (quadriceps) isn't on the injury report ahead of Saturday's game against Philadelphia.

Smith was probable heading into the Knicks' season opener but didn't appear in the contest. While he should be available against the 76ers, he's unlikely to play a significant role for New York.

December 22, 2020 08:24 PM
Knicks' Dennis Smith: Probable for opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Knicks list Smith as probable for Wednesday's season opener versus the Pacers with a left quadriceps contusion.

Smith was outside of interim head coach Mike MIller's rotation before the NBA suspended its 2019-20 campaign in mid-March, and the fourth-year point guard's situation isn't expected to improve much this season now that Tom Thibodeau is patrolling the sideline. The Knicks passed on offering Smith a contract extension prior to the deadline to do so earlier this week, signaling the team likely doesn't envision him being part of its future.

Knicks' Dennis Smith: Out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (undisclosed) is out for Friday's preseason game against the Cavaliers, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

Smith played 16 games off the bench in the team's last preseason game and was quite effective, posting eight points, four assists, five steals and two blocks. An undisclosed issue will now keep him out for the exhibition game with the regular season starting Wednesday for New York.

Knicks' Dennis Smith: Not part of rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in Tuesday's 122-115 loss to the Wizards.

Smith was available after being cleared to return from a five-game absence with a concussion. Still, he didn't see the court at all, even on a night when Elfrid Payton wasn't a factor. Frank Ntilikina filling it up may have played a part in Smith remaining on the bench, but regardless the team hasn't really been prioritizing Smith's development, so he can be left on waiver wires in most leagues.

Knicks' Dennis Smith: Officially available
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (concussion) will be available Tuesday against Washington, Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News reports.

Smith was probable as of Tuesday afternoon, and the team has now confirmed that he'll return after missing the last five games. Prior to the concussion, Smith averaged 18.0 minutes across four post-All-Star-break games.

March 10, 2020 01:52 PM
Knicks' Dennis Smith: Now probable vs. Wiz
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (concussion) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game against Washington.

Smith went from questionable to probable, so he's trending in the right direction, but the Knicks will wait until closer to game-time to issue a final update. It's worth noting that Smith was also deemed probable before ultimately being ruled out of Sunday's matchup against Detroit.

March 10, 2020 12:32 PM
Knicks' Dennis Smith: Questionable for Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (concussion) is questionable for Tuesday's game against Washington.

Smith was thought to have a good chance to play Sunday against Detroit, but he was ultimately ruled out for his fifth straight concussion-related absence. With a couple more days to recuperate, the Knicks are hoping to get the point guard back Tuesday for the front end of a back-to-back set.

March 8, 2020 05:52 PM
Knicks' Dennis Smith: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (concussion) will not play Sunday against the Pistons, Ian Begley of SNY reports.

Smith will miss a fifth straight game as he remains in the league's concussion protocol. He was bumped up to probable at one point, however, so he's likely close to making his return to action.

March 7, 2020 02:44 PM
Knicks' Dennis Smith: Could return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (concussion) practiced Saturday and is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Pistons, Greg Joyce of the New York Post reports.

It's a good sign that Smith was able to practice, but he still has to officially pass through the NBA's concussion protocol. More information may arrive following the Knicks' morning shootaround.

March 5, 2020 05:48 PM
Knicks' Dennis Smith: Out again Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (concussion) will not play Friday against the Thunder.

Smith has yet to clear concussion protocol and will remain sidelined for a fourth consecutive game as a result. Frank Ntilikina should continue to benefit from increased run in place of Smith, whose next chance to take the court will come Sunday against Detroit.

March 3, 2020 06:00 PM
Knicks' Dennis Smith: Remains out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (concussion) is out for Wednesday's game against the Jazz.

Smith has yet to clear concussion protocol, so he'll sit out for a third straight contest. In his absence, Frank Ntilikina should continue seeing extra run.
