Will Marcus Smart play again this season? Celtics 'just don't know'

Will Marcus Smart play again this season? Celtics 'just don't know'

The news keeps getting worse for the Boston Celtics.

Smart hit the floor often during the Celtics' Sunday night loss to IN, but one first half battle for the ball IN particular had a foreboding effect IN the form of a jammed thumb. Wojnarowski reports that the Celtics believe it is nothing more than knee tendonitis and that Irving is day-to-day and won't need to miss much time. With Marcus Smart (thumb) also uncertain for Wednesday's contest, Terry Rozier should be in line for big minutes in the backcourt.

Theis and Smart were both hurt in Sunday's game, with Smart's injury occurring when he dove to the floor.

The Celtics are 4.3 points per 100 possessions better this season with Smart on the court, although surprisingly most of the bump is on the offensive end.




Smart's right hand was later put in a cast, and he expressed confidence that, "it will be all right".

Smart scored 20 points with eight assists and seven rebounds Sunday in a loss to the Pacers.

The 21-year-old, who played his collegiate basketball at Vanderbilt, was originally selected by the Memphis Grizzlies in the first round (17th pick overall) of the 2016 NBA Draft.
