Marcus Smart Out Indefinitely With A Torn Tendon In His Right Thumb

Celtics guard Marcus Smart

The Boston Celtics will not have guard Marcus Smart in the lineup for quite some time after he reportedly tore a tendon in his thumb. Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania was the first to report the potential tear. Smart is now going over his treatment options with the Celtics medical staff, but with no clear timetable to return, he should be sent to the waiver wire in most cases. He suffered the injury diving for a ball in Sunday night's 99-97 loss to the Indiana Pacers, a game he started in place of the injured Jaylen Brown (also out indefinitely with a concussion). It's now second in the Eastern Conference standings, 3 1/2 games behind the Raptors. Theis was averaging 5.3 points and 4.4 rebounds in 63 games this season, playing behind Al Horford and Greg Monroe.

The more encouraging news for injury-ravaged Boston is that All-Star guard Kyrie Irving's left knee soreness is not considered anything more than tendinitis, and he will not need to miss significant time, league sources told Wojnarowski.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens didn't have an update on Irving at Monday's practice, but when asked about bringing him back, he noted the team would likely "tread slowly". Smart posted 20 points, eight assists, seven rebounds, four steals and six 3-pointers in 36 minutes on Sunday.
