4/10/2015 10:58:00 PM
Description: Rockets forward Josh Smith was fouled almost everytime he touched the ball.
Insight: The Spurs were comfortable putting him on the line, and rightfully so, as Smith went just 12-of-26 from the stripe. He also shot 4-of-9 from the field for a team-high 20 points, and also managed six rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block, and three turnovers.
 
3/27/2015 7:02:00 PM
Description: Rockets forward Josh Smith will start Friday night against Minnesota.

Description: Rockets forward Josh Smith came off the bench and scored the second-most points for the Rockets on Monday.
Insight: With James Harden scoring 44, no one else scored more than 20, but Smith registered 18 points on 50 percent shooting from the field. He was 4-for-6 from downtown. Smith also had five rebounds, three assists and a steal.

3/23/2015 1:28:00 PM
Description: Rockets forward Josh Smith is questionable for Monday's game against Indiana while dealing with an ankle issue.

Insight: He did so by going 8-of-15 from the floor, 2-of-3 from the line, and 2-of-4 from downtown. Smith also had six rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block, and one turnover. He is still ranked outside the top 200, and can be left on the waiver wire for the time being.
 
1/28/2015 10:34:00 PM
Description: Rockets forward Josh Smith came off the bench and led Houston in scoring on Wednesday.
Insight: Smith had 18 points, shooting 7-of-13 from the field. He was 4-for-5 from the 3-point line. Smith can be lethal from deep, but he will probably not get enough opportunities to be fantasy relevant.
 
12/27/2014 8:59:00 AM
Description: Forward Josh Smith, in his first game since signing with the Houston Rockets, came off the bench to score 21 points with eight rebounds and three assists.
Insight: Smith was averaging 13.1 ppg, 7.2 rpg, 4.7 apg, 1.3 spg in Detroit. He didn't shoot well with the Pistons and he was nine for a team-high 21 shots on Friday, so the trend continues.
 
12/25/2014 12:32:00 PM
Description: Forward Josh Smith, recently waived by the Detroit Pistons, is expected to sign with the Houston Rockets.
Insight: Smith was averaging 13.1 ppg, 7.2 rpg, 4.7 apg, 1.3 spg in Detroit but his presence was stunting Greg Monroe's growth. Smith should step into the power forward slot open by the injury to Terrence Jones.
 
12/22/2014 12:21:00 PM
Description: Pistons forward Josh Smith has been waived.
Insight: Smith was averaging 13.1 ppg, 7.2 rpg, 4.7 apg, 1.3 spg, but his presence was stunting Greg Monroe's growth. There should be plenty of takers for a guy with Smith's talents.
 
12/14/2014 9:59:00 AM
Description: Pistons forward Josh Smith recorded a double-double on Saturday.
Insight: Smith had 21 points and 13 rebounds in the, 95-90 victory over the Kings. He made 9-of-16 shots and went 3-for-5 at the line. Smith also had five blocks, five assists and two steals although he did have seven turnovers.

Description: Pistons forward Josh Smith posted a double-double in Monday's loss to Chicago.
Insight: He had 19 points, 11 rebounds, four assists, three blocks, one 3-pointer, and three turnovers. Smith will have nights like this one, but owners should expect some inconsistency.
 
11/5/2014 6:41:00 PM
Description: Pistons forward Josh Smith will start at small forward while Greg Monroe will start at power forward against the Knicks on Wednesday.
Insight: This doesn't really affect Smith's fantasy value. He has shot the same at each position.
 
11/1/2014 6:31:00 PM
Description: Pistons forward Josh Smith is starting on Saturday against the Nets.
Insight: Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy will give Smith the starting nod despite his .368 shooting percentage through the first two games. Smith takes Greg Monroe's spot in the starting lineup, but Monroe is still the better fantasy option against the Nets because of Brooklyn's weak front line.
 
10/22/2014 7:05:00 PM
Description: Pistons forward Josh Smith might play fewer minutes at small forward this season, which could help his fantasy value.
Insight: Smith had his lowest scoring average last season since 2008-2009. With new coach Stan Van Gundy, Smith might not play as often but his scoring average should still go back up. Smith's ceiling is still not very high.
 
10/11/2014 1:49:00 PM
Description: Pistons forward Josh Smith did not practice on Saturday due to slight groin soreness according to Pistons.com.
Insight: It doesn't sound serious. Smith is going to play power forward this season, but that really shouldn't change his fantasy value.
 
4/13/2014 10:17:00 PM
Description: Detroit forward Josh Smith (knee) missed his fourth straight game on Sunday.
Insight: Smith is dealing with patellar tendinitis in his left knee. His absence the last four games has allowed Rodney Stuckey to start, and Stuckey has averaged 21 ppg in that span.
