Dennis Smith Jr. (knee) listed questionable Sunday

Dennis Smith Jr. has been listed questionable with a knee injury ahead of the Pistons game Sunday against the Clippers.

Fantasy Impact

Killian Hayes (rest) has already been ruled out so if Smith also sits, Saben Lee would be in line to see more playing time. This will be a situation with Smith to monitor heading into Sunday night.

Dennis Smith Jr. (back) out Monday vs. Raptors

Pistons guard Dennis Smith Jr. (back) is out of Monday's matchup against the Raptors.

Fantasy Impact

Smith Jr. missed the Pistons game on 3/27, and teammates Cory Joseph (29) and Saben Lee (24) each saw an uptick in minutes played. Joseph earned eight points, six rebounds, and four assists. In comparison, Lee notched six points, five rebounds, and five assists. Both Lee and Joseph are choices fantasy managers with Smith Jr. sidelined, with the more intriguing option being whoever is announced the starter.

Dennis Smith Jr. (spine) out Saturday vs. Wizards

Pistons guard Dennis Smith Jr. (bilateral lumbar spine soreness) is out of Saturday's matchup against the Wizards.

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.

Dennis Smith Jr. (back) questionable vs. Nets on Friday

Detroit Pistons PG Dennis Smith Jr. (back) is listed as questionable to play against the Brooklyn Nets on Friday due to bilateral lumbar spine soreness.

Fantasy Impact

With Delon Wright being traded to the Sacramento Kings for Cory Joseph earlier Thursday, DSJ should have increased run within the Pistons' offense if he is cleared to return. If Smith Jr. suits up on Friday, expect him to eclipse 20 minutes for the first time since March 11th, creating great value on DFS sites during Friday's slate.

Dennis Smith Jr. does little in 19 minutes Friday

Dennis Smith Jr. posted only five points (2-3 FG, 1-1 3PT), five assists, one block, and two turnovers in 19 minutes during Friday's win over the Rockets.

Fantasy Impact

Smith only saw 19 minutes as Frank Jackson was inserted into the starting lineup and responded with 23 points. With Jackson now getting ample playing time and Delon Wright the leading point guard in the pecking order, Smith will find it difficult to produce fantasy value in his limited time on the court. He should remain on the waiver wire unless an injury takes place in the near future.
