Smith flops in start for Amare Stoudemire (Nov 15 12:00 ET )
Jason Smith started for Amare Stoudemire on Friday, managing just four points on 2-of-8 shooting with five rebounds and one steal in 24 minutes.
The Scoop:Smith has bounced in and out of the starting lineup this year, but as a starter he's averaging 11.5 points, 2.0 rebounds, and 1.0 assist. He really doesn't do much aside from score, so his value is better served in a points league. If you're in a standard 9-category league, he's not really worth paying attention to.
Jason Smith started at PF on Wednesday and hit 7-of-11 shots for 17 points, three rebounds and a block in a loss to the Pistons.
The Scoop:Not bad. But unless you're in a very deep league, you can probably find a better player than Smith off the waiver wire. Quincy Acy played off the bench tonight and failed to score, so it's quite possible Smith sticks in the starting lineup, for now.
The Scoop:He is coming off a nine-point game in 23 minutes on Tuesday. Smith did start the second half on Oct. 30, but that was at the center spot. It looks like coach Derek Fisher is going to shuffle his lineup too much to add Smith in most formats.
