FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Josh Smith is out Tuesday with left patellar tendinitis.

He was not listed in the starting lineup and now we know why. J-Smoothie is averaging 16.4 points,6.8 rebounds, and 3.3 assist in first season in Detroit. It will be interesting to see what Detroit does with the versatile small forward next season because Joe Dumars is apparently resigning. That means Smith could be on another team at the start of next season.ANALYST: Mark Kaplan
