    Celtics' Marcus Smart: To remain on minutes limit

    Marcus Smart will remain on a minutes limit for Wednesday's Game 5, Tom Westerholm of MassLive.com reports.Smart, who returned to action in Game 4, will still be somewhat limited according to coach Brad Stevens. For context, Smart saw 15 minutes in Game 4 while he averaged 27.5 during the regular season. Ultimately Smart's likely to see an uptick in run compared to Monday and could see a greater boost depending on his play.

    Celtics' Marcus Smart: Hoping for extended minutes

    Marcus Smart said he hopes to play longer stints in Wednesday's Game 5 against Milwaukee than he did in Game 4, Jay King of The Athletic reports.Smart made his return to action in Monday's Game 4 -- almost a full month after he last took the floor before suffering an oblique injury against the Magic on April 7. While Smart connected on a three-pointer in the first half, it would prove to be his only basket of the game, and he finished 1-of-7 from three while failing to attempt a single two-pointer. It's possible Smart could see a slight bump in minutes Wednesday, but the Boston Celtics may lean toward more consistent shooters after converting only 9-of-41 three-point attempts as a team in Game 4.

    Celtics' Marcus Smart: Plays 15 minutes in return

    Marcus Smart (oblique) posted three points (1-7 FG, 1-7 3Pt), two assists, one rebound and one steal in 15 minutes off the bench Monday in the Boston Celtics' 113-101 loss to the Bucks in Game 4 of the series.Back in action approximately one month after tearing a side muscle in the penultimate game of the regular season, Smart struggled to make an impact on either end during his time on the court. Smart should gradually take on more playing time as he becomes further removed from the injury, but he may only have one more opportunity to suit up this season with the Celtics on the brink of elimination.

    Celtics' Marcus Smart: Running on treadmill

    Marcus Smart (oblique) progressed to running on a treadmill Tuesday, Jay King of The Athletic reports.Smart remains out indefinitely while working back from a relatively severe oblique injury, which kept him out of Round 1 and is expected to sideline him for the entirety of Round 2, as well. Smart was initially given a 4-to-6-week timetable after sustaining the injury late in the regular season, though coach Brad Stevens referred to that projection as "aggressive," so the Boston Celtics will likely have to advance to the Conference Finals, or beyond, for Smart to return to the floor this season. Nonetheless, the fact that he's been cleared to resume running ahead of schedule represents a step in the right direction.
