Top Ish Smith News

  • Nuggets' Ish Smith: Has nine dimes in victory

    Smith had zero points (0-3 FG, 0-3 3Pt), two rebounds, nine assists and one steal over 23 minutes during Sunday's 109-95 victory over Sacramento.

    Smith tallied a season-high nine assists in the win, eclipsing 20 minutes for the second time in the past three games. Unfortunately, he failed to score, souring what could have been a productive outing. Heading into the playoffs, Smith is likely to be used as a depth piece should the team fall foul of the whistle.

  • Nuggets' Ish Smith: Plays 15 minutes Friday

    Smith chipped in two points (1-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt), three rebounds, four assists and one block in 15 minutes during Friday's 100-93 loss to Phoenix.

    With numerous regulars sidelined, Smith saw his most playing time since Feb. 15. He struggled mightily from the field and committed two turnovers in limited action, but he did dish out four assists. Denver is expected to be back to full strength Tuesday in Houston, so Smith figures to revert to an end-of-bench role for the Nuggets, assuming that's the case moving forward.

  • Nuggets' Ish Smith: Exits rotation

    Smith (coach's decision) didn't leave the bench in Tuesday's 116-115 loss to the Mavericks.

    After playing no fewer than 13 minutes in any of the Nuggets' last five games, Smith found himself outside of Denver's rotation while head coach Michael Malone turned to Bones Hyland and Christian Braun as his main guards off the bench. Hyland rewarded Malone for his faith by producing 20 points, five assists and four rebounds in 30 minutes, while Braun's contributions (five points in 16 minutes) were more muted. Because both Hyland and Braun are recent first-round picks, the Nuggets could continue to make them priorities over Smith, a 34-year-old journeyman on an expiring deal who lacks size as perimeter shooting.

  • Nuggets' Ish Smith: Vintage performance Monday

    Smith amassed 10 points (5-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt), five rebounds, eight assists, one block and two steals across 26 minutes during Monday's 129-113 victory over the Rockets.

    Smith came out of nowhere to deliver easily his best game of the season Monday. Having played in just six games prior to this effort, it's safe to say that managers did not see this coming. Before making any moves, we need to account for the fact this game was a blowout and the Nuggets were without a number of key pieces. This would need to be something he does for more than one game before people should sit up to take notice.

  • Nuggets' Ish Smith: Active Friday

    Smith (calf) will suit up for Friday's game against the Clippers.

    Smith will make a return from a right calf strain that has held him out for the entire month of November. However, Smith has averaged just 4.6 minutes across five appearances this season and shouldn't factor much into the rotation considering his lengthy absence and minimal role.

  • Nuggets' Ish Smith: Questionable vs. Clips

    Smith (calf) is questionable for Friday's matchup against the Clippers.

    Smith is nearing a return. The extra depth will benefit Denver, but he's yet to see more than eight minutes in a game this season across five appearances.

  • Nuggets' Ish Smith: Out again Wednesday

    Smith (calf) will not play Wednesday at OKC, Mike Singer of the Denver Post reports.

    Smith will miss a 10th straight game as he continues to deal with a strained calf. At this point, it's completely unclear if he's anywhere close to making his return to action.

  • Nuggets' Ish Smith: Questionable Wednesday

    Smith (calf) is questionable for Wednesday's matchup at Oklahoma City.

    Smith's calf strain has kept him out since Nov. 3, but he's on the verge of a return. He'll presumably be on a minutes limit in his first game back.

  • Nuggets' Ish Smith: Out Tuesday

  • Nuggets' Ish Smith: Questionable Tuesday

    Smith (calf) is questionable for Tuesday's contest against the Pistons, Katy Winge of Altitude Sports reports.

    The veteran point guard is listed as questionable for Tuesday after missing each of Denver's last nine games. If Smith ultimately can't suit up, his next chance to return comes Wednesday in Oklahoma City.

  • Nuggets' Ish Smith: Won't play Sunday

  • Nuggets' Ish Smith: Questionable versus Dallas

    Smith (calf) has been upgraded to questionable for Sunday's game against the Mavericks.

    Smith has missed the past eight games with the right calf strain, but he looks like he has a chance at making it back for Sunday's contest. Even if he's available ahead of the 7:30 p.m. ET tip off, Smith may only be in store for a limited role as the Nuggets' backup point guard.

  • Nuggets' Ish Smith: Doubtful for Sunday

    Smith (calf) has been listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Mavericks.

    The veteran point guard has missed eight games in a row and 10 overall during the current campaign, so he has struggled to find any consistency off the bench for Denver. Even if he ends up being available, Smith shouldn't be a big factor in most fantasy formats.

  • Nuggets' Ish Smith: Out as expected

    Smith (calf) will not play Friday against the Mavericks.

    Friday's contest marks eight straight absences for Smith due to a right calf strain, and with Jamal Murray (COVID-19 protocols), Nikola Jokic (COVID-19 protocols) and Aaron Gordon (illness) out, the Nuggets will be short-handed. Bones Hyland and Bruce Brown should receive plenty of run in the backcourt Friday. Smith's next opportunity to take the floor will come on Sunday in a rematch with Dallas.

  • Nuggets' Ish Smith: Unlikely to play Friday

    Smith (calf) is listed as doubtful for Friday's game against the Mavericks.

    Smith was listed as doubtful ahead of Denver's previous game before ultimately being ruled out for a seventh consecutive contest. It appears he'll likely remain sidelined Friday, so Bruce Brown and Bones Hyland should handle most of the point guard duties with Jamal Murray (COVID-19 protocols) out.
