News: Smith played 33 minutes and scored 17 points on Thursday against the Sixers. Impact: Smith went down with an ankle injury earlier this week, but felt good enough about it Thursday, that he was able to play in over 30 minutes of action. The ankle injury was never deemed to be something serious, so it's not too much of surprise he was able to suit up and play. He'll be all systems go for the Pistons' opener against the Nuggets Wednesday.(RotoWire, )

News: Smith (ankle) did not practice Monday. Impact: Smith sustained a minor ankle injury during Saturday's preseason game. Coach Stan Van Gundy said Smith could have returned to the game, so it doesn't look like anything serious, but he's likely being held out as a precaution.(RotoWire, )

News: Smith suffered a minor ankle injury in Saturday's preseason win over Atlanta, Keith Langlois of reports. Impact: Coach Stan Van Gundy said Smith could have gone back in after suffering the injury, but there was no sense in risking anything for a preseason game. Smith should be fine for Thursday's game against the 76ers.(RotoWire, )

News: Smith started at small forward in Wednesday's preseason win over the Hornets. He finsihed with 14 points (6-12 FG, 1-5 FT, 1-2 3Pt), 10 rebounds, five assists, one block and five turnovers in 34 minutes. Impact: The Pistons have used a different starting lineup in each of their four preseason tilts. Smith has been a part of the starting unit in three of the fours games, but Wednesday marked his first starting appearance at small forward. He was joined by Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe in the starting frontcourt, which is the same disastrous starting lineup Detroit rolled out for the majority of the 2013-14 campaign. It remains unlikely that both Smith and Monroe will be a part of the starting lineup this season, but both big men will continue to see heavy minutes.(RotoWire, )

News: Smith (groin) did not practice Saturday, reports. Impact: Smith's absence seems to have been more about maintenance, as the ailment was described as just "slight" groin tightness, but it wouldn't be a surprise if the Pistons took further precaution and held him out of Sunday's exhibition. Greg Monroe would presumably get the start in his place.(RotoWire, )
