News: Smith played 30 minutes in Thursday's loss to Minnesota, finishing with 10 points (5-16 FG, 0-2 3Pt), seven rebounds, four assists, two blocks and three turnovers. Impact: After a decent season debut against the Nuggets on Wednesday, Smith reverted back to the disappointment he was for much of the 2013-14 campaign in Thursday's loss to Minnesota. While he has made a more concentrated effort to work his way into the post, Smith continues to settle for too many long jumpers. He's shooting just 36.8 percent (14-of-38) clip from the floor, including an 0-of-5 mark from downtown. Smith has four blocks through the first two games and there's little doubt his defensive production will wane, but he's a fundamentally flawed player on the offensive end of the court who will give his owners fits, especially in rotisserie leagues.(RotoWire, )

News: Smith scored 25 points in Wednesday's loss at Denver. Impact: Smith looked to be in midseason form, going an inefficient 9 of 22 from the field. He did add five rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a steal, however.(STATS, 01:22am)

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 Pistons.com 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, )
