Zhaire Smith: Likely to be waived by Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pistons intend to waive Smith (knee), who was acquired Sunday in a trade with the 76ers, Vincent Goodwill of The Detroit News reports.

Detroit sent center Tony Bradley to Philadelphia in exchange for Smith, a 2018 first-round pick who has played in just 13 NBA games while battling a variety of health issues over his first two professional seasons. While the 21-year-old would seemingly be an ideal developmental prospect for a rebuilding club, the Pistons apparently have other players who rank as higher priorities for spots at the back end of the roster. Smith didn't accompany the 76ers to the NBA bubble in Orlando this summer due to a bone bruise in his left knee, but he should be ready to go for the start of the 2020-21 campaign.

Pistons' Zhaire Smith: Sent to Pistons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (knee) was traded from the 76ers to the Pistons on Sunday in exchange for Tony Bradley, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

The 2018 first-round pick appeared in only seven games during the 2019-20 campaign and averaged 4.6 minutes, and he didn't travel to the NBA bubble in Orlando due to a bone bruise in his left knee. Smith will get a fresh start in Detroit, though it's unclear if he'll be healthy for the start of the season.

76ers' Zhaire Smith: Won't play in Orlando
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith will not play in Orlando due to a bone bruise in his left knee, Derek Bodner of The Athletic reports.

The start of Smith's NBA career continues to be riddled with injuries, as he's appeared in just 13 contests through his first two professional seasons. The 2019 first-round pick began experiencing pain in the knee during workouts last week and has been undergoing treatment in the days since. At this point, the Sixers expect Smith to be at full strength by the time the start of the 2020-21 season rolls around. The Texas Tech product saw action in just seven games for Philadelphia prior to the shutdown, totaling eight points, two rebounds, two assists and three steals in 32 minutes.

76ers' Zhaire Smith: May have long-term stay in G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

G League Delaware coach Connor Johnson said Sunday that he expects Smith to remain with the affiliate for the foreseeable future before rejoining the 76ers once the regular season ends, Ky Carlin of USA Today reports.

The 2018 first-round pick has stayed healthy this season after missing extensive action as a rookie, but the playoff-contending 76ers simply don't have a spot in the rotation for Smith. As a result, he's made several appearances in the G League throughout the season to pick up playing time, and it looks like that plan will remain in place for the next month. Smith may rejoin the 76ers on a few occasions before the regular season concludes, but likely just as a depth option rather than as a rotation player.

76ers' Zhaire Smith: Scores 16 off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith had 16 points (7-16 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 0-1 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one steal over 31 minutes in Thursday's G League loss to Wisconsin.

After missing nearly a month of G League action, Smith's production has picked up over his past three appearances, as he's averaged 15.3 points and 4.0 rebounds per game during that span. Smith has primarily operated off the bench this season, but he's generally been able to capitalize on his opportunities.

76ers' Zhaire Smith: Logs 10 minutes versus Warriors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith had three points (1-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), one rebound and one steal in 10 minutes during Tuesday's 115-104 win over the Warriors.

Smith had suffered a sprained left ankle during Saturday's matchup versus the Lakers but was able to give it a go in this one. He hadn't appeared in a single game this season prior to these last two, and there's a strong chance he falls back out of the rotation once Josh Richardson (hamstring) returns. Still, Smith could be in line to see at least some minutes for at least the next week or so.

76ers' Zhaire Smith: Available Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (ankle) has been cleared to play Tuesday against Golden State, Justin Grasso of Sports Illustrasted reports.

Smith was initially deemed questionable due to a left ankle sprain, but he'll be available off the bench Tuesday as needed. He's appeared in just one game this season for the Sixers, dishing out an assist in three minutes Saturday against the Lakers.

76ers' Zhaire Smith: Questionable for Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (ankle) is considered questionable for Tuesday's game against the Warriors, Ky Carlin of USA Today reports.

Smith saw his first NBA action of the season during Saturday's home win over the Lakers, but he suffered a sprained left ankle that limited him to only three minutes of action. Although the injury doesn't appear to be too serious, Smith could end up being held out of Tuesday's contest.

76ers' Zhaire Smith: Suffers ankle sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith won't return to Saturday's game against the Lakers after sustaining a left ankle sprain, Derek Bodner of The Athletic reports.

Smith was recalled from the G League on Friday and played three minutes in the first half versus the Lakers before leaving the game. The severity of the injury remains unclear, but the fact the 20-year-old was ruled out straightaway and not considered questionable is hardly a good sign.

76ers' Zhaire Smith: Called up from G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith was recalled from the G League on Friday, Derek Bodner of The Athletic reports.

The Sixers need temporary help on the wing with Josh Richardson (hamstring) out for at least a few weeks. Smith has played just six NBA games this season, averaging 6.7 points in 18.5 minutes.

76ers' Zhaire Smith: Scores 12 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith had 12 points (5-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt), one rebound and one assist over 23 minutes in Friday's G League loss to Grand Rapids.

Smith was one of the most effective contributors on the scoreboard Friday as the Blue Coats failed to generate much offensive production. The 20-year-old is averaging 13.3 points and 3.4 rebounds per game this season.

76ers' Zhaire Smith: Recalled from G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 76ers have recalled Smith from the G League on Thursday.

Smith posted 15 points in 29 minutes for the Blue Coats during Tuesday's loss to the Red Claws in the G League. The Texas Tech product will reportedly be available to play if needed during Philadelphia's slate against Houston on Friday.

76ers' Zhaire Smith: Scores 19 in G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith totaled 19 points (7-13 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block over 27 minutes in Saturday's G League loss to Maine.

Since returning to the G League after an injury and limited usage forced him away from the parent club, Smith has recorded double-digit point totals in each of his four games. The 20-year-old is averaging 13.5 points and 3.9 rebounds per game.

76ers' Zhaire Smith: Suits up in G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (leg) played 20 minutes off the bench for the G League's Delaware Blue Coats in their 114-107 win Saturday over the Raptors 905. He tallied 10 points (5-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt), five rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block in the contest.

Smith hadn't seen any action at either the NBA or G League level for the past week due to a deep laceration on his lower right leg. Now that he's apparently healed, Smith shouldn't face any restrictions moving forward, though he's not expected to be much of a factor in the NBA rotation this season.

76ers' Zhaire Smith: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (leg) won't play in Sunday's game against Toronto, Derek Bodner of The Athletic reports.

Smith is back with the 76ers after a stint with the G League's Delaware Blue Coats, during which he sustained a right lower leg laceration. The injury doesn't sound especially serious, though it prevented him from playing at either the NBA or G League level Saturday. He'll miss a second straight contest Sunday, leaving Tuesday's game against the Nuggets as his next opportunity to play for the 76ers.

76ers' Zhaire Smith: Out for Saturday's G League game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith suffered a deep lower right leg laceration Friday and will not be available for G League's Delaware Blue Coats during Saturday's matchup with the Maine Red Claws, Kyle Neubeck of PhillyVoice.com reports.

It's unclear how long Smith will be sidelined. More updates should be provided following the Blue Coats' future practices.

76ers' Zhaire Smith: Assigned to G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 76ers assigned Smith to the G League's Delaware Blue Coats on Monday.

After an injury-plagued rookie campaign, Smith has been healthy for much of 2019-20 but has yet to see minutes at the NBA level while he remains buried on the 76ers' depth chart at either wing spot. Expect the 20-year-old to continue making regular trips to Delaware this season in search of playing time.

76ers' Zhaire Smith: Returns to G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith was assigned to the G League on Tuesday.

Smith was recalled from Delaware on Sunday and didn't see the court during Monday's loss at Toronto. The 20-year-old hasn't seen NBA action this season, but he's averaging 12.8 points and 4.2 rebounds in his last five games with the Blue Coats.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 76ers have recalled Smith from the G League on Sunday, Kyle Neubeck of PhillyVoice.com reports.
