Fantasy Impact:

With Smith out, we can expect more playing time from Frank Jackson and Cory Joseph. Jackson is coming off a performance where he scored 14 points in 11 minutes. Joseph seems like the candidate more likely to draw the start though he was recently traded, so it's not a guarantee that he does. It's worth monitoring who is announced the starter closer to tip-ff, and that player is the most substantial fantasy consideration as it pertains to this news.
