Jason Smith PF/C NY 18 Days

Smith played 23 minutes as a starter Thursday against the Rockets and managed to contribute six points, four rebounds, two assists, and one steal during his time on the court.

Smith has moved in and out of the Knicks' starting five this season as coach Derek Fisher continually switches up his lineup on a weekly, and often daily, basis. This makes it hard to put stock in Smith who is averaging just 18.1 minutes per game over all 39 games at this point in the 2014-15 campaign. Unless he's given more minutes on a steady basis, the 28-year-old only remains an option for the very deepest of formats.

Smith will start Thursday's game against the Rockets.

Smith and Quincy Acy have been taking turns starting next to Cole Aldrich, but regardless of which player starts, Acy has the higher ceiling on a nightly basis, as Smith has fallen shy of 25 minutes in five consecutive games.

Smith scored 10 points (4-11 FG, 2-2 FT) to go along with five rebounds and two blocks in 22 minutes Monday against the Grizzlies.

Smith moved back into the starting lineup Monday, but still only played 22 minutes. He has had some solid performances this season, but his playing time has been too inconsistent to really take his fantasy value to the next level.

Smith got the start on Sunday, as Stoudemire and Dalembert sat out of this game with injuries. He finished with six points (2-7 FG, 2-2 FT) seven rebounds, and four assists in 28 minutes.

Smith is too inconsistent to really be considered an option in fantasy, although if you're scraping the bottom of the barrel he's widely available. With New York's normal starters being somewhat injury-prone Smith will get windows for bigger minutes throughout the season.

Smith scored 12 points (4-9 FG, 4-4 FT) with five rebounds, two assists and one steal during Saturday's loss to the Kings.

Smith drew the start with Quincy Acy serving his one game suspension for brawling with John Wall on Thursday. He played 30 minutes on Saturday but is likely to fall back into the 17-24 minute range once again with Acy back in action. Smith is likely only on the radar in deep leagues.

Smith scored 16 points (6-11 FG, 4-4 FT) with three rebounds in 21 minutes in the loss to the Raptors on Sunday.

Smith received extra playing time because Samuel Dalembert was ejected. He came one point shy of his season high and can knock down a mid-range jumper when left open. Smith could be a decent add in deeper leagues with the Knicks being destroyed by injuries.

Smith started and scored four points (2-8 FG), grabbed five rebounds, and one steal in 28 minutes against the Jazz Friday.

Smith was Friday's winner of the latest round of "musical chairs" that Knicks have been playing with their starters. The Knicks have used different starting lineups for each of their past three games. The game is mostly academic, however, since the minutes distribution remains much more stable. For his part, Smith typically plays between 19 and 24 minutes, and moving to the starting lineup did not change that. He is a pretty inefficient shooter for his position, but he can provide an irregular source of points, rebounds, and assists for desperate deep league players.

Smith will start at power forward Friday against Jazz.

Smith has rotated in and out of the starting lineup whenever coach Derek Fisher decides he wants to go with a big or small lineup. He wants to go big against the Jazz, so Smith will get the call. Amare Stoudemire is also sitting out, so he'll most likely be relied upon for even more minutes.

The Knicks are going with a small lineup Saturday against the Hawks and Smith is the unfortunate odd man out.

Smith will start at power forward Wednesday against Detroit, the Wall Street Journal's Chris Herring reports.

Amar'e Stoudemire will come off the bench, as coach Derek Fisher wanted a bigger front line to matchup with the Pistons' big men. Smith's fantasy value probably won't see more than a slight bump, as Stoudemire still figures to be a prominent factor off the bench.
