Smith (wrist) has been ruled out Sunday against the Kings, Eddie Sefko of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Smith was previously upgraded to probable leading up to Sunday's matchup, but he'll be held out due to a nagging wrist sprain. He's missed five of his team's last six contests and his next chance to play will come Tuesday against Denver. Jalen Brunson figures to start with both Smith and J.J. Barea (ankle) out of the picture.
Smith (wrist) will not play in Sunday's game against the Kings, Eddie Sefko of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Smith came into the game as probable, so it's unclear what caused him to be a late scratch. He missed four games before returning for Thursday's game and playing 27 minutes. His next opportunity to play will be Tuesday against the Nuggets and he should be considered questionable for that game.
Smith (wrist) has been upgraded to probable for Sunday's matchup against the Kings.
Smith returned Thursday from a four-game absence due to a right wrist sprain that has been bothering him lately. It seems he's dealing with some soreness after playing 27 minutes, but signs are pointing to him playing against Sacramento.
Coach Rick Carlisle labeled Smith (wrist) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Kings, Mike Peasley of ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM reports.
Carlisle didn't elaborate on if an injury was plaguing Smith, but the 21-year-old uncertain status is more than likely related to sprained right wrist he's been nursing recently. The issue cost Smith four consecutive games before he returned to action for Thursday's 99-89 loss to the Suns, during which he started at point guard and played 27 minutes, finishing with four points (2-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt), eight rebounds, three steals and one assist. Reserve J.J. Barea (ankle) is also listed as questionable, so if neither he nor Smith is available Sunday, Jalen Brunson would assume the bulk of the playing time at point guard.
Smith (wrist) pitched in four points (2-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt), eight rebounds, one assist and three steals across 27 minutes in the Mavericks' 99-89 loss to the Suns on Thursday.
Smith made his return to the lineup after a four-game absence, but his main contributions came on the boards. The second-year guard will look to bounce back to his more usual levels of production versus the Kings in a Sunday night home battle.
