    Celtics' Marcus Smart: Helps in win despite scoring only one point

    Marcus Smart posted an ugly line of one point (0-7 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block across 31 minutes in Thursday's 92-88 win over the Warriors.Despite not making a shot from the field, Smart was still a key cog in Boston's big comeback win. His aggressive rebounding and tight defense helped spark a 19-0 run in the third quarter and resulted in a +15 plus-minus rating for the game. Smart's contributions are more valuable in real basketball versus fantasy, as his poor shooting (27 percent for the season) will always be a drain on your squad's field goal percentage. Smart and Boston hope to extend their 14-game winning streak Saturday in Atlanta.

    Celtics' Marcus Smart: Will return to bench role Tuesday

    Marcus Smart will return to the bench for Tuesday's matchup with the Nets, A. Sherrod Blakely of NBC Sports Boston reports.Smart picked up the start on Saturday in place of the ailing Kyrie Irving (face), tallying 14 points, five rebounds, nine assists and two steals across 32 minutes. However, Irving's been fitted for a mask and will return to his usual spot in the starting lineup Tuesday, forcing Smart back to the bench. All that being said, Smart's demotion to the bench shouldn't have an impact on his playing time, considering he was already averaging 30.1 minutes off the bench prior to Saturday's contest.

As a starter, he showed here that despite the lousy shooting, he can still provide useful all-around stat lines. The starting role shouldn't last, however, as Irving is expected to return to the floor soon.

    Celtics' Marcus Smart: Starting at point guard Sunday

    Marcus Smart will start at point guard for Sunday's game against the Raptors.The Boston Celtics are set to be without usual starter Kyrie Irving (concussion) on Sunday, which allows Smart to pick up the start in his place. Considering Smart is already averaging 30.1 minutes off the bench, his promotion likely won't come with a drastic increase in playing time, though he could see an uptick in his usage. Along with Smart, Terry Rozier is expected to have increased value with Irving sidelined.

    Celtics' Marcus Smart: Near triple double during blow out win in Orlando

    Marcus Smart generated 11 points (4-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight assists, eight rebounds, three steals and one block from 29 minutes in Sunday's lopsided 104-88 win in Orlando.With the Magic missing their top two point guards, this contest was over early. Coach Brad Stevens was able to give considerable run to reserves Smart, Terry Rozier and Semi Ojeleye. The extra minutes enabled Smart to deliver an exaggerated Smart-like stat line. Smart's poor shooting (31% year to date) continued, but he gathered more than usual rebounds, assists and steals. Expect Smart to continue being the first man off the bench Monday night as the Boston Celtics travel to Atlanta, looking to extend their eight game winning streak.

    Celtics' Marcus Smart: Plays 27 minutes Saturday

    Marcus Smart registered 16 points (6-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, four assists and two steals across 27 minutes in Saturday's 96-90 victory over the Heat.After not playing consecutive games earlier in the week, Smart has now played 27 minutes in back-to-back games to close out the week. While his first game back wasn't the most productive, Smart provided more offense off the bench Saturday than most of the starters provided. The ankle ailment seems to be a thing of the past and Brad Stevens should deploy him more often in the coming games, with the next one being Monday against the Spurs.

    Celtics' Marcus Smart: Will play off the bench Thursday

    Marcus Smart (ankle) will play in Thursday's game against the Bucks, but will come off the bench Brian Robb of BostonSportsJournal.com reports.Smart has missed the last two games while nursing an ankle injury and he'll be eased back into the swing of things off the bench Thursday. Coach Brad Stevens indicated that Smart will be likely be limited to around 4-to-5 minutes per quarter, so it appears his playing time may max out around 20 minutes if everything feels good. That likely makes him someone to avoid for now in terms of his fantasy value, though he should be back to a full workload at some point over the next few games.
