Celtics' Marcus Smart: Will head to bench Monday

Smart is expected to return to a bench role for Monday's game against the Wizards, Chris Forsberg of ESPN.com reports.

Smart picked up two consecutive starts in place of the injured Isaiah Thomas (knee), but with Thomas back to full strength and reclaiming the starting point guard role, Smart will head back to the bench. After logging 35 minutes Sunday against the 76ers, Smart should see his playing time drop into the upper 20's, although he'll still provide some value as one of the team's top bench options despite the demotion to the second unit.
