Celtics unsure if guard plays again this season, report says

Celtics unsure if guard plays again this season, report says

Boston will have to find a way to keep the ship steady and maintain their second spot in the East, considering the see-saw battle taking place in spots 3-to-8. The C's top bench option injured his thumb while diving for a loose ball in Sunday's loss to the Indiana Pacers.

Now this: Marcus Smart has a torn ligament in his thumb.

Charania reports Smart will seek second opinions on his injury, so his timeline for recovery is undetermined.

That appears to be confirmed by this latest update, as the Celtics organization doesn't believe Irving's injury is anything overly serious.

Sisodia said another such meeting would be called and BJP would be invited again. "The BJP has the government at the Centre. We should present our points in favour of traders before the committee", Sisodia said.

Smart's chances of returning this season don't seem high though, as The Boston Herald's Mark Murphy reported Tuesday, citing league sources, that the Celtics "just don't know" if the guard will be able to return.

If Smart is sidelined for an extended period of time (potentially into the playoffs), it would be a big hit to the Celtics.

Theis was averaging 5.3 points and 4.4 rebounds in 63 games this season, playing behind Al Horford and Greg Monroe.

Irving has been healthy for most of the season but the knee injury is cropping up at a bad time.
