Marcus Smart diagnosed with torn tendon

Marcus Smart diagnosed with torn tendon

The news keeps getting worse for the Boston Celtics.

Charania reports Smart will seek second opinions on his injury, so his timeline for recovery is undetermined. He is expected to receive a second opinion on the thumb, which he injured diving for a loose ball in Sunday's loss to the Indiana Pacers. With Marcus Smart (thumb) also uncertain for Wednesday's contest, Terry Rozier should be in line for big minutes in the backcourt.

Joining him on the bench will be shooting guard Jaylen Brown (concussion), forward Gordon Hayward, hybrid guard Marcus Smart, and forward Daniel Theis - the last three in risk of missing the remainder of the season. Smart missed time earlier in the season after lacerating that same hand when he hit a picture frame on the wall at the team hotel during an angry outburst.


That appears to be confirmed by this latest update, as the Celtics organization doesn't believe Irving's injury is anything overly serious. Though he initially said he would be "all right", it's clear the Celtics now fear he could miss extended time.

Smart is averaging 10.2 points, 4.8 assists and 3.5 rebounds per game.
