Hornets' Ish Smith: Invisible off bench
Smith contributed four points (2-3 FG), one rebound and one assist in 14 minutes during Tuesday's 115-91 loss to the Knicks.
Smith played just 14 minutes in the loss, a little underwhelming given the recent injury to LaMelo Ball (ankle). Ball is likely to miss multiple weeks, meaning there are going to be more minutes available to both Smith and Bryce McGowens. While this was a poor performance, Smith might be able to have limited value as an assists streamer, at least for the next few weeks.... See More ... See Less
Hornets' Ish Smith: Modest role
Smith has appeared in four games and is averaging 1.5 points, 2.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 0.8 steals in 12.3 minutes since making his season debut Nov. 5.
Tuesday's game was Smith's season high in minutes (19) and his third consecutive game (disregarding a DNP on Nov. 10) in which he played at least 10 minutes. As Terry Rozier (groin), Frank Ntilikina (leg) and James Bouknight (knee) all recover from their respective injuries, Smith should continue to see extended playing time.... See More ... See Less

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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ...

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.... See More ... See Less
