Smith is questionable for Wednesday's regular season finale against the Heat, Max Rappaport of the Sixers' official site reports.

Smith played in Monday's contest following a one-game absence because of the groin issue. Assuming no setbacks occurred during the contest, it's reasonable to believe he will play once again in Wednesday's tilt. However, his status should be updated as the opening tip-off draws nearer.

Smith (groin) returned from a one-game absence with four points (2-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt), nine assists, and three steals in 34 minutes in the loss to Milwaukee on Monday.

The 76ers were forced to use Jakarr Sampson at point guard Saturday against the Bulls. Smith has been a consistent source of assists with Philadelphia, but anything else fantasy owners get is a nice bonus. He has hit just 31.5 percent of his field goals.

Smith (groin) will play and start Monday against the Bucks, Keith Pompey of the Philly Inquirer reports.

Smith tweaked his groin last week and was held out of action Saturday against the Bulls. Initially considered questionable to play Monday, Smith will get the start as JaKarr Sampson likely moves back to the bench.

Smith (groin) expects to play Monday against the Bucks, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Take this news with a grain of salt since Smith was expected to pay Saturday, but ultimately ended up sitting that one out. If he does play Monday, Smith likely won't be 100 percent healthy, so fantasy owners may want to avoid him anyway.

Smith (groin) likely won't play Saturday in Chicago, the Sixers' official site reports.

After a report earlier Saturday stating Smith was expected to play, he'll in all likelihood don street clothes. If his left groin concern keeps him on the pine, coach Brett Brown will insert Jakarr Sampson into the starting five at the point, with Hollis Thompson acting as the backup.

Smith is nursing a left groin injury, and his health is estimated at 70 percent. Coming off a three-point, six-assist performance Wednesday against the Wizards, he'll aim to return to double-digit points in spite of the ailment.
