Dennis Smith Jr. (illness) probable to play Friday

Dennis Smith Jr. (illness) is probable to play in Friday's game against the Dallas Mavericks.

Fantasy Impact

Smith is a new addition to Charlotte's injury report, being listed with a non-covid illness of some kind that will leave him with an injury designation for Friday's game. He's considered probable to play, however, and he's expected to be good to go against the Mavericks.

Dennis Smith Jr. scores 14 points against the Magic

Dennis Smith Jr. scored 14 points (5-8 FG, 0-2 3P, 4-6 FT), with four rebounds and three assists in Charlotte's 119-113 loss to the Magic on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

The good news is Smith Jr. has seen steady minutes off the bench for the Hornets since returning from injury in January and was their most productive bench player on Sunday. The bad news is that he isn't seeing enough work to make him worth rostering. But with the trade deadline coming up, there may be hope for his fantasy value. Charlotte is at the bottom of the league and it would not be a surprise if they send off some pieces for to help them rebuild. A spot could open up for Smith Jr. in the starting lineup if Charlotte makes any moves.

Dennis Smith Jr. (ankle) will make return on Monday

Dennis Smith Jr. (ankle) will make his return for Monday's contest against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Fantasy Impact

Smith hasn't played since mid-November after injuring his ankle, but he has finally gotten better and will play in Monday night's game. It's likely that he will be on a minutes limit for his first week or two back on the court, but he should go back to being a decent flex option when fully ramped up.

Dennis Smith Jr. (ankle) ruled out Saturday

Dennis Smith Jr. has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Nets.

Fantasy Impact

It has been like clock work recently with Smith being listed as questionable before being ruled out. Theo Maledon will continue to see minutes in the back court off the Hornets bench, but he is not fantasy relevant.
