Smith contributed eight points, three rebounds, two assists, and one block in 24 minutes off the bench against the Lakers on Thursday.

Smith is currently a limited option across all formats who's minutes are curbed by coach Derek Fisher. With just five weeks left in the season, it would be unlikely for Smith to see extended time on the court before the year comes to a close.

Smith started for the injured Lou Amundson (back), recording only five points in 19 minutes Saturday against the Pacers.

Smith was hit with two fouls in the first five minutes of the game, picked up his third at the end of the first half, and committed his fourth early in the third quarter, capping his minutes substantially. The Knicks face an undersized Denver Nuggets next, allowing coach Derek Fisher to look elsewhere if Amundson can't play.

Smith moved to the bench and scored nine points (4-10 FG, 1-1 FT) while adding four rebounds and three assists in 29 minutes against the Pistons Friday.

While it looks as though the move to the bench made little impact on Smith's playing time, it is important to note that the game went to two overtime periods. Smith played fewer minutes than both starters Andrea Bargnani and Lou Amundson, and was less effective than both of them as well.

Smith will play off the bench against Detroit on Friday.

Smith's fantasy value is harmed a bit by the switch, but his role might remain surprisingly stable despite the apparent demotion. Smith was replaced by Andrea Bargnani, who has always been plagued by durability woes, and starting power forward Lou Amundson is a limited player with a propensity for fouls. Still, Smith's fantasy appeal is certainly lessened in light of this more ambiguous role.

Smith scored 14 points (5-9 FG, 4-6 FT) with 10 rebounds and four assists in 27 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Celtics.

Smith bounced back from a couple of quiet outings so owners who held him will be feeling more comfortable after this game. Smith can score and rebound and with a shortage of big men the Knicks will rely on him for the remainder of the season.

Smith scored 25 points (10-16 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 4-6 FT) with seven rebounds in 36 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Magic.Smith's scoring has been inconsistent all season, but the Knicks are going to need his offense with Carmelo Anthony getting close to shutting it down. If you need a big man who can score and rebound, then you could do a lot worse than add Smith.

Smith scored 12 points (6-8 FG) with seven rebounds and five assists in 31 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the Celtics.

He's been getting consistent minutes lately with modest results, averaging 32.9 minutes, 10.5 points, 5.8 boards, 4.0 assists and 1.0 blocks over the last eight games. In deep leagues, Smith could be worth a short-term add until Cole Aldrich (leg) gets healthy and rejoins the lineup.

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 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.
