Top Jabari Smith News

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Double-doubles in OT victory

    Smith provided 16 points (3-8 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 7-9 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist and one block across 39 minutes during Monday's 132-123 double-overtime victory over Philadelphia.

    Smith okayed a career-high 39 minutes in the win, racking up the fourth double-double of his young career. After what can only be described as a rough start to the season, Smith has turned things around of late, putting up top 70 numbers over the past two weeks. His shooting remains an issue, but the fact he is a mid-round talent despite shooting just 45 percent from the floor is a real positive.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Solid from field in win

    Smith racked up 17 points (7-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt), six rebounds, one block and one steal over 30 minutes during Friday's 122-121 victory over Phoenix.

    Smith was solid in the first half, knocking down four of eight shot attempts for 10 points to go along with three rebounds, one steal and a block. The Rockets forward only attempted four more shots over the final two quarters, hitting three of them for another seven points as Houston narrowly came away with the victory to snap the Suns' six-game winning streak. Smith has now scored 15 or more points in four of his last six games while also hitting at least three three-pointers in six straight.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Notches double-double in win

    Smith had 15 points (5-11 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 13 rebounds and one block over 31 minutes during Saturday's 118-105 victory over the Thunder.

    Smith nearly had a double-double in the first half, knocking down three of six shots for 11 points to go along with nine rebounds. He added another three boards in the third quarter but hit just two more shots in the second half for four points as the Rockets kept the Thunder at bay. It was Smith's third double-double of the season and his fourth time recording double-digit rebounds.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Scores career-high 22 points

    Smith accumulated 22 points (8-14 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds and one assist over 32 minutes during Sunday's 127-120 loss to Golden State.

    The highly touted rookie struggled in the opening weeks of the season, but this was the perfect example of what he can do when his shots are falling. For the most part, Smith has been inefficient and inconsistent, shooting just 33.3 percent from the field and 30.2 percent from three on the year. His efficiency has been slightly better of late, though he's still difficult to justify starting in most standard leagues. Long-term, Smith has plenty of potential, and he should improve as the year goes along, but he's endured a rocky first month in the NBA.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Peripheral production continues

    Smith finished Friday's 99-91 loss to Indiana with 12 points (4-14 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and two blocks over 36 minutes.

    Smith struggled with his shot once again Friday but was able to salvage his night with decent peripheral production. As has been the case all season, Smith simply needs to get more confidence on the offensive end. Despite the poor shooting, his playing time remains consistent, and he is contributing in other areas. Given the opportunity, holding is still the best option in fantasy as long as you can deal with the inefficiency.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Corrals 15 rebounds Saturday

    Smith recorded nine points (4-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 15 rebounds, two assists and two blocks over 28 minutes during Saturday's 119-106 loss to New Orleans.

    Smith was a beast on the boards in the loss, recording a career-high 15 rebounds -- six of which came on the offensive end. He also accounted for half of Houston's four blocks and finished one point shy of his second straight double-double. Smith endured a brutal four-game stretch from late October to early November during which he averaged just 4.3 points and shot 20 percent from the field, but he's been a bit better over his subsequent two contests, going 8-for-21 (38.1 percent) and averaging 12.0 points.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Officially available Monday

    Smith (illness) is available for Monday's game against the Magic, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Smith sat out Saturday against Minnesota due to his illness but was probable ahead of Monday's game. Over his first nine appearances of the season, he's averaged 10.8 points and 6.1 rebounds in 30.7 minutes per game.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Probable Monday

    Smith (illness) is probable for Monday's game against Orlando.

    Smith missed Saturday's game against Minnesota due to an illness but will likely be able to return to action Monday. He's shot just 19.2 percent from the floor over his last three appearances and has averaged 4.7 points and 5.3 rebounds in 27.3 minutes per game during that time.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Won't play Saturday

    Smith (illness) is out for Saturday's game versus the Timberwolves, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Smith also missed Friday's practice due to illness. With Smith out, expect Tari Eason and Kenyon Martin to see increased playing time in the frontcourt Saturday. The 2022 No. 3 overall pick's next chance to play will be Monday versus the Magic.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Misses practice Friday

    Smith was out sick from practice Friday, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Smith's status for Saturday's game versus Minnesota is likely in question after he missed practice Friday. The 2022 No. 3 pick has averaged 10.8 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.2 blocks in 30.7 minutes across nine games this season. If Smith isn't able to play Saturday, Kenyon Martin and Tari Eason should be in line for extended minutes in the frontcourt.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Back-to-back poor outings

    Smith posted four points (2-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist and one block across 30 minutes during Monday's 95-93 loss to the Clippers.

    Smith came into the contest with a sprained right ankle and struggled for a second consecutive contest. It's unclear if the injury is hampering his play, or he's simply in a slump. Regardless, he's only scored 12 points over his last two games after scoring in double figures in each of the first six games of his career. Smith will look to get back on track against the Clippers on Wednesday.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Good to go Sunday

    Smith (ankle) will be available for Sunday night's game against the Suns, Gerald Bourguet of PHNX Sports reports.

    Smith was questionable coming into the day due to a sprained ankle, but after going through a pregame workout he's been cleared to take the floor. Smith is coming off of a 12-point, two-rebound, one-steal, one-block effort against the Trail Blazers on Friday. The No. 3 overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft has drained multiple three-pointers in all six of his games thus far.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Questionable Sunday

    Smith is questionable for Sunday's game at Phoenix due to a sprained right ankle.

    Sunday could mark the rookie's first absence of his career. He's scored in double digits during all six of his appearances, averaging 13.8 points on 34/36/88 shooting, 6.5 rebounds, 1.3 blocks and 1.0 assists in 32.3 minutes. If he's out, more minutes could be in store for Kenyon Martin, Tari Eason and Jae'Sean Tate.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Lights up Jazz for 21 points

    Smith logged 21 points (6-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 6-6 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and three blocks across 34 minutes during Monday's 114-108 win over Utah.

    Alperen Sengun's (illness) absence forced Smith into a more prominent role Monday, and he responded with his best scoring total yet. Injuries to Jae'Sean Tate (ankle) and Bruno Fernando (knee) have allowed Smith to start in every game this season, and it will be especially interesting to see how Smith's usage is affected upon Tate's return.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Double-doubles in defeat

    Smith closed with 13 points (5-15 FG, 3-7 3Pt), 11 rebounds, one assist and two blocks across 28 minutes during Saturday's 125-105 loss to Milwaukee.

    Smith led Houston with 11 boards in the contest to notch his first NBA double-double. However, he didn't shoot well from the field, making just five of 15 shots, though his final stat line was boosted by his trio of three-pointers and pair of blocked shots. Smith has shown some offensive promise through his first three games by knocking down multiple triples in each contest, though his 30.4 percent mark from the field thus far is problematic.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Struggles from field in debut

    Smith supplied 17 points (6-17 FG, 3-11 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and one assist across 33 minutes during Wednesday's loss to Atlanta.

    Smith took only one shot in the first quarter before going 6-16 from the field from the second quarter on. He knocked down just two threes on seven attempts in the second half but did contribute on the defensive end with five second-half rebounds. The 2022 third-overall pick did not turn the ball over in the game and will look to help lead the Rockets to their first win on Friday night at home against the Grizzlies.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Cleared for season opener

    Smith isn't listed on the Rockets' injury report ahead of Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Hawks.

    Smith was sidelined for Houston's final three preseason games due to a sprained left ankle. However, as expected, the 2022 No. 3 overall pick will return to action during the Rockets' first game of the season. Smith is expected to start at power forward and should garner a hefty workload for a rebuilding team during his rookie campaign.
