This Should Help Your Blocks and Steals
After missing a dozen games with an ankle injury, Hawks forward and all-around fantasy stud Josh Smith will be back in uniform for tonight’s game against Memphis. Though, if you have him on your roster and have other options given all of tonight’s games, you may want to think twice about starting him.
“That’s the big emphasis right now is to try not to overdo it because I’m so excited to be back,” Smith said. “That’s just a part of listening to your body and knowing how many minutes your body can take the first night back. And I won’t lie, my body will have to tell me because in my mind, I want it all back right now.”
I’m sure both the Hawks (.500 ball since his injury) and fantasy owners (averaging 12 points, 8.0 rebounds, 2.5 blocks and 2.3 steals) are licking their lips at Smoov’s return. In fact, everyone not named “Marvin Williams” has to be thrilled with this news. By this time next week, he should be back in his box score-filling ways. Hopefully, you hung in there with him as he should pay you back handsomely.
