  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Near double-double

    Smith accumulated 18 points (6-10 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and one block over 27 minutes during Wednesday's 111-91 win over the Grizzlies.

    Smith has finished one rebound short of a double-double in back-to-back games. Over his past three appearances, he's averaged 16.3 points, 7.7 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.0 blocks in 30.3 minutes. It's certainly been a nice bounce-back week for the second-year forward after a three-game stretch in which he averaged just 7.7 points on 37.0 percent shooting. However, Smith isn't out of the woods yet and remains an inconsistent and unreliable fantasy option moving forward.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Posts 17 points in loss

    Smith ended Monday's 121-116 loss to the Warriors with 17 points (7-12 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal in 32 minutes.

    Smith turned in another solid outing after a three-game shooting slump, and he's remained a critical piece of the defensive effort with consistent rebound totals. It's no surprise to see the Auburn product take on an enhanced role in his second season, and only an injury would keep him from being firmly entrenched in the starting lineup.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Goes for 13 points in win

    Smith notched 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt), four rebounds and one block in 22 minutes during Monday's 122-97 win over the Kings.

    Smith failed to reach the 25-minute mark for the first time this season, but that was more due to the nature of the game instead of a poor outing from the second-year forward. Smith has looked good of late and has scored in double digits in five games in a row.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Team option exercised

    The Rockets exercised Smith's 2024-25 team option Monday.

    Smith will earn $9.77 million in 2024-25, and his rookie deal also contains a $12.35 million option for 2025-26 that would allow the Rockets to keep him around a fourth season. After an up-and-down rookie season, Smith is averaging 11.3 points, 7.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.3 three-pointers and 1.3 steals in 32.3 minutes per game through the Rockets' first three contests of 2023-24, but he's shooting just 37.8 percent from the field and has yet to block a shot.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Comes close to double-double

    Smith ended Sunday's 106-95 loss to the Warriors with 14 points (6-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt), eight rebounds, five assists and two steals in 34 minutes.

    Smith is operating as Houston's fourth-best option on offense behind Jalen Green, Fred VanVleet and Alperen Sengun, but he stepped up in this one with VanVleet struggling (eight points, 2-13 FG). Smith has scored in double digits while coming close to completing a double-double in his last two outings, so he's trending up following a subpar showing in his regular-season opener.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Scores team-high 20 points

    Smith posted 20 points (7-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds and a block across 24 minutes in Wednesday's 117-103 preseason loss to the Spurs.

    Smith was one of two projected starters -- the other being Alperen Sengun -- who featured in the first unit in this one, and he responded by leading the team in scoring. Smith improved massively as the 2022-23 season progressed, and he should be in line to have a prominent role once again in 2023-24. Smith averaged 12.8 points and 7.2 rebounds per game as a rookie, and he shouldn't have problems topping those numbers as a sophomore.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Excellent against New Orleans

    Smith delivered 22 points (9-13 FG, 4-5 3Pt), nine rebounds, two assists and a steal across 24 minutes in Thursday's 120-87 preseason win over New Orleans.

    Smith opened his preseason with a 14-point, seven-rebound effort against the Pacers, but he looked even better in this one and finished just one rebound away from a double-double. He showed steady progress as the 2022-23 season advanced, and he seems ready to take a significant leap in his second year in the league. He's penciled to open the season as the regular starter at power forward.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Productive in win

    Smith totaled 14 points (4-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 5-5 FT), seven rebounds and one block in 23 minutes during Tuesday's 122-103 preseason win over the Pacers.

    Smith saw plenty of work as a rookie last year, averaging 12.8 points and 7.2 rebounds in 31.0 minutes per game over 79 appearances. He also had notable production during this year's Summer League and maintained his results during Tuesday's preseason opener. The 20-year-old should continue to see considerable playing time once the regular season begins.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Goes for 38 points

    Smith poured in 38 points (13-25 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 9-10 FT), seven rebounds, six assists, a block and a steal over 32 minutes during Sunday's 113-101 Summer League win over the Pistons.

    Smith with another offensive clinic in Summer League, this time doing most of his damage in the mid-range. Smith was getting any look he wanted, whether it be at the rim or beyond the arc, and he was converting at a high clip. The second-year pro has displayed an improved ability to take advantage of mismatches offensively in this year's Summer League, and seems more comfortable and assertive on that end. It remains to be seen whether Smith will be shut down for the remainder of Summer League, but it should not come as a surprise if he is.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Erupts for 33 points

    Smith produced 33 points (8-18 FG, 3-8 3PT, 14-17 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and one block in 31 minutes of Friday's 100-99 Summer League win over Portland.

    Smith got off to a slow start, but he slowly worked his way into the game before completely taking over. In one of the craziest moments of the Summer League so far, Smith hit a wild three-pointer with 0.6 seconds left to steal the win from Portland at the buzzer. If Friday was any indication, Smith could be ready to make a leap in his second season.
