Description: Rockets C/F Greg Smith is questionable for Tuesday's game against Sacramento due to a sore right knee.
Insight: Smith (3.5 ppg, 2.5 rpg) isn't fantasy worthy as he's not seeing playing time even when healthy with Omer Asik back in the mix.

Description: A sore knee will keep Rockets C/F Greg Smith out of the lineup Wednesday against the Pelicans. SOURCE: Jason Friedman, Rockets.com
Insight: He's now missed three of Houston's last five games. Smith (3.5 ppg, 2.5 rpg) isn't someone you should be considering for fantasy.

Description: Houston C/F Greg Smith won't be available for Wednesday's game against the Lakers. SOURCE: Mark Berman, Fox 26 Houston
Insight: Smith's knee still isn't right. This will be his seventh absence in the last eight games. That should open the door for Terrence Jones (10.1 ppg, 6.8 rpg) to see a few more minutes.
 
12/26/2013 10:55:00 AM
Description: Rockets big man Greg Smith is questionable for Thursday's game against Memphis.
Insight: He's missed the last two weeks with an LCL sprain, came back for four games and missed the last two contests. With Smith and Omer Asik sidelined, Terrence Jones could have another big workload. Jones scored 21 with 14 rebound on Christmas Day.
 
11/27/2013 3:09:00 PM
Description: Rockets big man Greg Smith believes he'll play Friday against Brooklyn. SOURCE: Mark Berman, Fox 26 Houston
Insight: He's missed the last two weeks with an LCL sprain. Smith is a distant third on Houston's depth chart at center behind Dwight Howard and Omer Asik.
 
11/14/2013 9:53:00 PM
Description: TNT's Rachel Nichols reports that Greg Smith's X-rays came back negative. The team believes he suffered an LCL sprain in his right knee, though he'll need an MRI to confirm that diagnosis.
Insight: It sounds like the Rockets were able to dodge a bullet. An LCL sprain is still a significant injury but with the way Smith went down in the first quarter, it could have been a lot worse. Consider him day-to-day.
 
11/14/2013 9:03:00 PM
Description: Houston C/F Greg Smith will miss the rest of the game after suffering an injury to his right leg Thursday against the Knicks.
Insight: They almost needed a stretcher to get him off the court. This has the potential to be a serious injury. We should know more about Smith's condition after he gets an X-ray.
 
11/14/2013 10:49:00 AM
Description: Rockets backup center Greg Smith is questionable for Thursday's game against New York with flu-like symptoms.
Insight: Smith isn't fantasy worthy, averaging 4.0 ppg and 3.0 rpg.
 
2/26/2013 11:20:00 AM
Description: Rockets backup center Greg Smith is probable for Wednesday's game against Milwaukee while dealing with a bruised right knee.
Insight: Smith isn't fantasy worthy, averaging 5.5 ppg and 4.0 rpg, but his absence would add more minutes to Omer Asik who has been very productive this season averaging 10.4 ppg, 11.5 rpg.
 
1/23/2013 11:29:00 AM
Description: Rockets backup center Greg Smith is questionable for Wednesday's game against Denver as his wife just gave birth to a baby.
Insight: Smith isn't fantasy worthy, averaging 5.8 ppg and 4.4 rpg, but his absence will add more minutes to Omer Asik who has been very good this season averaging 10.3 ppg, 11.0 rpg.
 
12/15/2012 10:09:00 AM
Description: Rockets center Greg Smith made 8-of-9 field goal attempts Friday against the Celtics for 20 points off the bench in 22 minutes.
Insight: Smith had a similar game on Dec. 4, making 7-of-8 for 21 points, but he followed that up by scoring nine points total over his next four games. He'll only be a fantasy option if Omer Asik gets injured.
 
12/4/2012 10:42:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Greg Smith hit 7-of-8 shots and scored 21 points with nine rebounds and two blocks in 24 minutes off the bench to spark a 17-point comeback victory over the Lakers Tuesday.
Insight: Smith scored 13 points in just 16 minutes in Houston's last game. While this is likely a one-off effort on an off night for Omer Asik (10 points, 9 rebounds, 24 minutes), Smith is someone to keep an eye on.
 
11/9/2012 1:39:00 PM
Description: Rockets backup center Greg Smith is probable for Friday's game against Memphis. He's been dealing with a sore left foot.
Insight: Smith scored 10 points and pulled down five rebounds in 17 minutes against Detroit in his only on court appearance this season. He's worth keeping an eye on in deeper leagues.
