Josh Smith F HOU 18 Days

Smith had 20 points, six rebounds, and three assists in 32 minutes off the bench Tuesday against the Suns.Smith has now scored in double figures in each of his last three games and seven of his last ten overall. He continues to see ample time off the bench, averaging 27.1 minutes in his last ten games. That number would be higher had he not been ejected after 14 minutes against Golden State. He also continues to be a solid source for rebounding and assists, averaging 9.3 boards and 5.3 dimes in four games this month.

Smith scored 5 points (2-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt) with two rebounds, two assists and one block in 13 minutes before being ejected after picking up two technical fouls in the Rockets loss to the Warriors.

Smith is averaging 10.3 points, 5.4 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 0.8 blocks and one steal since joining the Rockets. However, his continued inefficiency, 41.6 percent from the field and 43.8 percent from the free throw line makes him barely own able in standard leagues.

Smith scored 21 points (10-20 FG, 1-5 3pt) to go along with six rebounds, two assists and three steals in 26 minutes Monday against the Bulls.

Smith was productive in limited minutes Monday off the bench again for the Rockets. He struggled as a member of the starting lineup, so the Rockets might continue to just bring him off the bench if he can produce in that role on a consistent basis.

Smith came off the bench Saturday in the win over Miami and provided 12 points (6-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 0-2 FT) and six rebounds in 22 minutes.

Since scoring 21 points in his Rocket debut, Smith has fallen off to 6.6 points in his last five games. He has made just 1-of-7 on 3-pointers in that span. Until he earns more minutes, he is a borderline fantasy play.

Smith will come off the bench Saturday against the Heat, the Houston Chronicle

It didn't seem like things could get much worse for Smith after he left Detroit, but he's shooting just 34.6 percent from the field (18-for-52) in five games with Houston. Donatas Motiejunas will get the nod at power forward against Miami and presumably remain in the starting lineup for the time being.

Smith disappointed in his first start with the Rockets in Sunday's game against the Spurs, posting just five points (2-7 FG, 1-2 FT, 0-1 3Pt), eight rebounds, one assist, three steals, four turnovers, and five fouls in 26 minutes of action.

Smith was plagued with fouls, and it's clear he'll have some adjusting to do before he's back to form. In two games with his new team, Smith is averaging 13.0 points, 8.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.5 steals, and 0.0 blocks per game. It's likely that his blocks will get an uptick back to his season average of 1.6 per game, but it's extremely likely that he won't live up to the 4.5 assists he had been averaging with the Pistons. With James Harden taking over much of the facilitating duties, Smith will be reduced to a mid-to-late-round value from a fantasy standpoint.

Smith will get the starting nod at power forward Sunday against the Spurs.

Smith showed that he could make an immediate impact when he scored 21 off the bench in Friday's contest against the Grizzlies, and coach Kevin McHale will reward him with his first start for his new team. The move will delegate Donatas Motiejunas to a reserve role.

Smith came off the bench to score 21 points (9-21 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT) in his Rockets debut against the Grizzlies Friday. He also added eight rebounds and three assists in 32 minutes.

It was a strong performance for Smith, and against a strong Grizzlies defense. It's too early to declare Smith revitalized now that he is with a new team, but it is fair to point out that the 29-year-old seemed capable of more than he was producing while he was with the Pistons.

Smith was present at the Rockets' shootaround Friday morning and is on track to play versus Memphis, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Smith's presence at shootaround all but guarantees he'll be active for Friday's contest, but how many minutes he'll see with his new team remains to be seen. A chance of scenery could do wonders for Smith's value, but from a fantasy perspective, it's best to wait at least one game to see how coach Kevin McHale deploys the versatile forward.

Smith is expected to be with the Rockets before their game against the Grizzlies on Friday and could potentially play in the game, the Houston Chronicle reports.

The Rockets are working on completing a trade to try and clear the roster space for Smith without having to waiver a player outright. It's probably more likely that Smith will make his debut with the Rockets for Sunday's game, but it's possible he could be in the lineup Friday.
