2017–18 Fantasy Outlook
Smith performed well backing up Reggie Jackson at point guard last season. He was able to avoid the injury bug and played in a career-high 81 games, while averaging 9.4 points, 2.9 rebounds and 5.2 assists across 24.1 minutes. Those numbers were all down from a season prior... read more
Smith performed well backing up Reggie Jackson at point guard last season. He was able to avoid the injury bug and played in a career-high 81 games, while averaging 9.4 points, 2.9 rebounds and 5.2 assists across 24.1 minutes. Those numbers were all down from a season prior, and there's a chance they continue to go down heading into the 2017-18 campaign. The Pistons surprisingly opted to bring in Langston Galloway this offseason, giving him a three-year, $21 million deal. The two will now have to battle for minutes at point guard behind Jackson, which could mean a dip in Smith's minutes. Unless Jackson gets injured, which is a distinct possibility considering his recent history with tendinitis, Smith will struggle to provide meaningful Fantasy value.

  2. Ish Smith 2014–15 Preseason Outlook
    Smith joins the Rockets this year after playing with the Phoenix Suns during the 2013-14 season. Last season, he got a decent boost in playing time going from 10 minutes per game two seasons ago to 14 minutes per game last season. He also improved his numbers in every other important category, as he averaged 3.7 points, 1.8 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 0.7 steals, and 0.2 blocks, which was an increase from his averages of 2.4 points, 1.2 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.7 steals, and 0.2 blocks during the 2012-13 season. Smith also shot well, finishing the season with 42-percent shooting from the field. He's potentially in line for a good amount of playing time, with the backup point guard spot up for grabs. Smith will have some serious competitors with guys like Isaiah Caanan, Nick Johnson, and Jason Terry, but he'll have every opportunity to establish himself as a reserve for the Rockets. Whether he ends up behind Patrick Beverley or not, there's a good chance Smith will improve on his numbers from the last few seasons, and he'll provide the Rockets with depth in the backcourt.
  3. Ish Smith 2013–14 Preseason Outlook
    The Suns are collecting ACC players, and Smith is the least likely of the bunch to find the floor. Stuck behind Dragic, a pair of combo guards and his former counterpart Marshall, he should provide decent playmaking ability in limited action.
  4. Ish Smith 2012–13 Preseason Outlook
    Smith lost the chance to compete for the backup point guard role after injuring his shoulder, but is expected back by mid-November. When he returns, he’ll have the chance to challenge Moore for the gig, and his quickness makes him more of an offensive threat. He needs to improve his shooting, though, to earn minutes.
  5. Ish Smith 2011–12 Preseason Outlook
    The Warriors claimed Smith off waivers late in training camp and he’ll compete with rookie Charles Jenkins to be the backup to Stephen Curry at point guard. Smith is one of the quickest players in the NBA and can get anywhere he wants on the court. He had a nice college career at Wake Forest before getting some run with the Rockets in his rookie season in 2010-11. We suspect there won’t be much playing time left over after Curry and Monta Ellis get their’s, so Smith will not have a major role on the team in 2011-12.
