    Smart (thigh) is out for Wednesday's game against the Pacers, Brian Robb of The Springfield Republican reports.

  • Celtics' Marcus Smart: Stuffs stat sheet in OT win

    Smart ended Sunday's 116-111 overtime win over the Magic with 17 points (3-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 9-9 FT), seven rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and one steal in 44 minutes.

    Smart turned in an impressive multi-category contribution in the overtime win, logging another great stat line in his second game back after a two-game absence. The hand injury that sidelined him doesn't seem to be much of an issue, as he's converted 44 percent of his shots from the floor over the past two contests.

  • Celtics' Marcus Smart: Scores 24 points in win

    Smart delivered 24 points (10-18 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT), nine rebounds, and three assists across 39 minutes in Friday's 123-108 home win over the Suns.

    Smart returned from a two-game absence (hand) to post a much-needed solid line for the Celtics. Big performances from Smart, Robert Williams and Jaylen Brown helped Boston end its three-game losing streak. The efficient shooting from Smart was overdue. The defensive stalwart had shot 35.4 percent over his prior seven games. Smart also led the Celtics in minutes as the squad stuck with an eight-man rotation.

  • Celtics' Marcus Smart: Won't be limited in return

    Smart (hand) will not have a minutes restriction during Friday's contest against the Suns, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

    Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports that coach Ime Udoka said Smart will play with the hand laceration that has sidelined him for two games and it will just be a matter of pain tolerance to determine how much he plays. The veteran point guard was cleared for game action after getting shots up Thursday, and it appears he will be full-go in his return to action. Jayson Tatum and Dennis Schroder are both still in protocols, so the Celtics will need everything they can get out of Smart.

  • Celtics' Marcus Smart: Off injury report

    Smart (hand) will be available for Friday's contest against the Suns, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports.

    After missing two games with a hand laceration, Smart will be back. With, notably, Jayson Tatum and Dennis Schroder still in protocols, Smart could take on increased usage. This month, he's averaging 10.6 points, 5.3 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 1.9 steals in 33.3 minutes.

  • Celtics' Marcus Smart: Out Wednesday

    Smart (hand) will not play during Wednesday's contest against the Clippers, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.

    The veteran guard is in line to miss his second straight appearance as he continues to recover from a hand injury. Payton Pritchard shined in Boston's last outing with 24 points (8-22 FG, 5-14 3Pt, 3-3 FT), eight rebounds, six assists and one steal across 45 minutes. Expect the second-year pro out of Oregon to continue to see increased usage with Smart sidelined. The 27-year-old's next chance to return to Boston's lineup comes Friday against the Suns.

  • Celtics' Marcus Smart: Questionable for Wednesday

    Smart (hand) is questionable for Wednesday's contest against the Clippers, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports.

    Smart suffered a laceration on his right hand during the Christmas Day contest against the Bucks and was sidelined for Monday's contest. If he's unable to return Wednesday, then Dennis Schroder and Josh Richardson -- who were both removed from COVID-19 protocols Tuesday -- will likely see additional playing time.

  • Celtics' Marcus Smart: Unavailable Monday

    Smart (hand) won't play Monday against the Timberwolves, John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal reports.

    The laceration Smart suffered on his right hand Christmas Day against the Bucks affects his ability to grip the basketball, so he won't take the court Monday for the Celtics. Payton Pritchard and Brodric Thomas should see more run in the backcourt in his absence at Minnesota since Dennis Schroder and Josh Richardson are both in the COVID-19 protocols.

  • Celtics' Marcus Smart: Listed questionable for Monday

    Smart is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Timberwolves due to a laceration on his right hand, Brian Robb of MassLive reports.

    It's unclear when, exactly, Smart picked up the injury, but his status will be worth monitoring over the next several hours. If he does sit out Monday, Romeo Langford and Payton Pritchard would likely be in line for significant jumps in minutes for the still-COVID-riddled Celtics.

    Smart continues to be an up-and-down offensive player, and he came just three points shy of his season high Saturday. The performance also marked his fifth straight game with at least one steal.
