Ish Smith produced 21 points (9-12 FG, 3-4 3PT, 0-1 FT), four assists, four rebounds, and one block across 23 minutes in the Wizards' 138-132 win over the Spurs on Wednesday.
The 21 points are a season-high for Smith. He was highly efficient with his offensive opportunities, shooting 75 percent from the field. This performance marked just the second time this season that he has scored in double-digits. Perhaps coincidentally, both double-digit scoring games have come against San Antonio. However, this is about as high as Smith's ceiling goes. Fantasy owners should not expect this kind of output on a nightly basis. It will take an injury to Isaiah Thomas to allow Smith to receive the playing time and workload necessary to make him a decent fantasy option. Smith and the Wizards will host the Hornets on Friday.
