Description: Pelicans C/F Jason Smith will undergo knee surgery on Wednesday. SOURCE: New Orleans Times-Picayune
Insight: The procedure will remove loose cartilage from his right knee. The team announced Saturday that Smith is out indefinitely.

Description: New Orleans C/F Jason Smith is out indefinitely. An MRI showed Smith has cartilage damage in his right knee. SOURCE: NBA.com
Insight: With Ryan Anderson and now Smith injured, the Pelicans are dangerously undermanned in the low post. Greg Stiemsma is likely to start at center Saturday versus Golden State. Stiemsma (2.6 ppg, 3.6 rpg) is not a fantasy option.
 
1/7/2014 6:15:00 PM
Description: Pelicans center Jason Smith (knee) will return to action Tuesday but he'll be on a minute limit, according to Jennifer Hale of FOX Sports.
Insight: He has missed seven of the last eight games. He's averaging 10.1 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.1 blocks this season but he'll need to prove he's healthy before fantasy owners use up a roster spot on him.
 
1/2/2014 9:47:00 AM
Description: Pelicans center Jason Smith (knee) missed a second straight game Wednesday and is questionable for Friday's game against Boston.
Insight: He has missed five of the last six games. He has some low end value when he plays (10.1 ppg, 6.2 rpg), but he'll have to get and stay healthy for him to be worthy of a fantasy roster spot.
 
1/1/2014 7:18:00 PM
Description: Pelicans center Jason Smith (knee) will miss a second straight game Wednesday.
Insight: This will be his fifth absence in the last six games. He can be cut loose in most leagues for a healthier big man.
 
12/28/2013 9:21:00 PM
Description: The Pelicans have flip-flopped and are playing PF/C Jason Smith (knee) Saturday night.
Insight: Smith was announced as out for the fourth consecutive game but he has come off the bench and has eight points in seven minutes at halftime.
 
12/28/2013 6:59:00 PM
Description: Pelicans PF/C Jason Smith (knee) will miss his fourth straight game Saturday.
Insight: Smith has started 24 games for New Orleans this season and is averaging 28 minutes, 10.1 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.1 blocks, so he has some fantasy value.
 
12/27/2013 1:24:00 PM
Description: Pelicans PF/C Jason Smith (knee) is questionable for Friday's game, according to John Reid of nola.com.
Insight: Smith has started 24 games for New Orleans this season and is averaging 28 minutes, 10.1 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.1 blocks, so he has some fantasy value. He's missed the last two games with a knee injury.
 
12/23/2013 4:43:00 PM
Description: Pelicans PF/C Jason Smith (knee) sat out a second straight game Monday due to a bruised knee.
Insight: Smith has started 24 games for New Orleans this season and is averaging 28 minutes, 10.1 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.1 blocks, so he has some fantasy value.
 
3/1/2013 4:43:00 PM
Description: Hornets PF/C Jason Smith (shoulder) will miss the rest of the season. SOURCE: Marc Spears, Yahoo!
Insight: Smith has a torn labrum in his right shoulder. He didn't carry much fantasy value but was taking minutes away from New Orleans' more viable big men.
 
12/28/2012 8:45:00 PM
Description: Hornets PF/C Jason Smith (shoulder) returned to action Friday for the first time in 2 1/2 weeks.
Insight: Smith (8.0 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.0 blocks) is behind Anthony Davis, Ryan Anderson and Robin Lopez on New Orleans' big man depth chart so he doesn't have much fantasy value right now.
 
12/14/2012 6:57:00 PM
Description: Hornets PF/C Jason Smith will miss up to two weeks due to a shoulder sprain. SOURCE: Jim Eichenhofer, Hornets.com
Insight: Anthony Davis, Robin Lopez and Ryan Anderson will absorb Smith's (8.0 ppg, 3.7 rpg, 1.0 bpg) 18 minutes per game, coach Monty Williams said.
 
12/7/2012 1:35:00 PM
Description: Hornets PF/C Jason Smith is questionable for Friday's game against Memphis with a sore knee. He'll be a game-time decision.
Insight: Smith will warm up prior to the game before deciding to play or sit. Robin Lopez (12.0 ppg, 5.5 rpg, 1.1 apg) benefits with more PT if Smith sits.
 
3/23/2012 4:36:00 PM
Description: Jason Smith will serve a two-game suspension after his flagrant foul on Blake Griffin Thursday sent Griffin tumbling to the floor. Smith was immediately ejected from the game for the hard foul.
Insight: Smith actually got the start over Gustavo Ayon Thursday and was having a decent game before the ejection (17 points, eight rebounds). With Smith suspended, Ayon (6.4 ppg, 4.6 rpg) should be re-inserted into the Hornets' starting lineup.
 
2/1/2011 11:12:00 PM
Description: Emeka Okafor will miss up to three weeks with a strained left oblique. Jason Smith, his understudy, got the start and played extremely well in 25 minutes by producing 20 points on 9-of-11 shooting with five boards and two steals.
Insight: Chris Paul just makes everyone on the court better and this is the newest piece of evidence. Smith doesn't have much experience, but after a night like tonight he deserves some consideration in deep leagues. Okafor could be back in a week, so make sure you don't cut any player on your roster that has even minimal value.
 
9/24/2010 1:01:00 PM
Description: Smith was traded to the Hornets along with Willie Green for Craig Brackins and Darius Songaila.
Insight: Smith is big (7-footer, 240 lbs), but has not been healthy enough to make much of a mark in the NBA. Maybe he'll get more playing time with the Hornets and be a surprise. Maybe. (RapidDraft.com)
