Marcus Smart is under the weather and did not travel with the team for tonight's preseason matchup in Brooklyn.  Via ESPN Boston's Chris Forsberg, Brad Stevens said:

[Smart has] got what everybody else had, plus fever and everything else. We’ve gone through that a little bit with our roster and hopefully we’re nearing the end of it.

Terry Rozier is hurt as well, and will be out of action most of the week:

This evening's contest tips off at the Barclays Center at 7:30 p.m.
