      Celtics' Marcus Smart: Expected to miss road trip

      Smart (leg) is expected to remain out through the Celtics' upcoming five-game road trip, Scott Souza of the Providence Journal reports. Smart is no longer using crutches, but he continues to wear a bulky leg brace, per A. Sherrod Blakely of CSN. Coach Brad Stevens said it's all but a certainty that Smart misses all five games of the road trip, and he called Smart a "long shot" to return for one of the first two games following the road swing (Dec. 9, Dec. 11). As such, Smart should continue to be considered out indefinitely, and at this point it's unclear when, exactly, he could rejoin the team.

      Celtics' Marcus Smart: Looks set to miss beyond two weeks

      Smart (lower left leg) said Wednesday that he's without a definitive timetable for a return, but expects to miss more than the two weeks initially suggested earlier this week, A. Sherrod Blakely of CSN New England reports. According to Blakely's report, Smart has been using crutches along with a leg brace to aid his recovery from a subluxation (dislocation) of the proximal tibfib joint, which doesn't exactly paint an optimistic picture about his recovery. The Celtics will likely wait and see how he progresses over the next week before perhaps offering up a better estimation of how much time he might miss. For the time being, those who are holding Smart in shallower formats can probably cut bait, unless there's a IR spot available to stash him. While Smart remains sidelined, Isaiah Thomas and Avery Bradley should routinely receive 30-plus minutes per game, while bench players Evan Turner, Terry Rozier, and R.J. Hunter could see smaller bumps in playing time.

      Celtics' Marcus Smart: Could miss more than two weeks

      Smart (knee) is expected to miss at least the next two weeks, Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe reports. Smart was already expected to miss Sunday's game, but will now be forced to remain sidelined for at least two weeks after re-evaluating his knee injury. With Smart sitting out, Avery Bradley and Isaiah Thomas should hold down the starting backcourt positions. Evan Turner and Terry Rozier could see a bump in minutes as well.

      Celtics' Marcus Smart: Out Sunday in Brooklyn

      Smart (knee) will not play Sunday in Brooklyn, Mike Mazzeo of reports. This is not a surprise considering Smart did not travel with the team. He hurt his knee in Friday's win over Brooklyn, but will not be able to help the Celtics do it again Sunday. It is unclear the timetable for Smart's return, but the earliest he could potentially return is Tuesday in Atlanta. Expect an update before then.

      Celtics' Marcus Smart: Will undergo MRI on knee

      Smart will undergo an MRI on his knee, Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe reports. While Martin did not have the knee wrapped after Friday's win over Brooklyn, coach Brad Evans said Martin will undergo an MRI after colliding with a Nets player, leaving his status for Sunday up in the air. Martin scored seven points on 2-of-5 shooting in 21 minutes Friday, adding two rebounds, four assists and a steal.

      Celtics' Marcus Smart: Fills up score sheet Monday against Rockets

      Smart scored just four points, but collected nine rebounds, six assists and five steals over 30 minutes in Monday's 111-95 win against the Rockets. Obviously the shooting performance was ugly, but Smart was still able to have a very productive fantasy outing. He got a bit too trigger happy from downtown, something young guards do from time to time. If Smart sticks to getting to the basket and free throw line, his offensive game will look a whole lot better.

      Celtics' Marcus Smart: Scores career-high 26 in Sunday's win

      Smart scored 26 points (9-14 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 5-8 FT) with eight rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block in 34 minutes during Sunday's win over the Thunder. The former Oklahoma State Cowboy set a new career high in points after scoring 25 last year in OKC, so Smart clearly enjoys his homecoming games. The second-year point guard has struggled so far in his first full season in a lead role for the Celtics, but games like this could become the norm rather than the exception as he develops and matures.

      Celtics' Marcus Smart: Has quiet night in return to starting lineup

      Smart (toe) managed just five points (2-10 FG, 1-5 3Pt), three rebounds, and three assists in 30 minutes during the Celtics' 106-93 win versus the Hawks on Friday. Smart's contributions did not show up on the stat sheet in this one, as he also committed three turnovers. However, his defense helped key the Celtics' win versus the Hawks on Friday. With Avery Bradley dealing with a calf strain, Smart's defense will be desperately needed on Sunday when they take on the Thunder. Assuming Smart's toe issues are behind him, he is a good bet to see at least 30 minutes per game going forward despite the fact that his offensive contributions will likely be somewhat inconsistent.

      Celtics' Marcus Smart: Starting at shooting guard

      Smart will return to the starting lineup Friday, Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe reports. With Avery Bradley (calf) out again, Smart will be a part of the starting backcourt after coming off the bench in his return from a toe injury Wednesday.

      Celtics' Marcus Smart: Returns from three-game absence

      Smart (toe) scored eight points (1-6 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 6-8 FT) and added two assists, a rebound, and a steal over 21 minutes in his return to action Wednesday against the Pacers. After missing the Celtics' previous three games due to a sprained toe, Smart was limited Wednesday, as he came off the bench and barely cracked the 20-minute mark. As he draws closer to 100 percent health, Smart should replace Isaiah Thomas as the starting point guard, but that shouldn't have an overwhelming impact on the fantasy value of either player. The starter/reserve distinction hasn't really applied to the duo this season, as Smart is averaging 30.3 minutes per game to Thomas' 30.
