Dennis Smith shot 2-for-12 on his way to seven points (no 3s), eight assists and a steal in Friday’s 113-106 loss to the Pistons.
Despite his explosive athleticism, Smith just hasn’t delivered for owners this season with a cumulative top-250 value on the season. He’s much better in points leagues but his poor shooting and bountiful turnovers just hasn’t cut it for 9-catters. Even with his struggles tonight, Yogi Ferrell played just 11 minutes. This is the fourth straight game with fewer than 20 minutes for Yogi and even with J.J. Barea (oblique strain) out for the season, it seems like Ferrell will be mostly backing up DSJ until the season concludes next Wednesday and thus can be left on waivers.
