Danny Ainge says Marcus Smart still 2 weeks away from returning (will probably miss 3 weeks in total)
Celtics GM Danny Ainge appeared on 98.5 The Sports Hub's Toucher & Rich show this morning, and among other things he gave an update regarding Marcus Smart's injury status. When asked about Smart's two-week timetable, Ainge said:
Probably still a couple weeks from today. So I think probably three weeks from when he injured it is going to be closer. He's progressing very well, I expect him to be back--we won't put him out there until he's really ready to go.
Boston definitely misses Smart's presence on defense. I imagine he could have made a difference when guards Reggie Jackson and Anthony Morrow were torching the C's during the Thunder's 67-point second half last night...
Anthony Morrow and Reggie Jackson were a combined 16-for-20 shooting in the second half with one turnover #thunder#celtics
