Celtics Marcus Smart is shooting and scheduled to return after ASB

The tweet video below shows Marcus Smart shooting with his right hand taped. I doubt the injury will have an adverse effect on his shooting. There is a joke there, but out of respect for Marcus, I will avoid it.

I truly believe we will see a refocused Smart upon his return after the All-Star Break. He would be foolish not to learn from the self-destructive behavior that led to the injury. Marcus is in a contract year, and his future with the Celtics, or with the League generally, comes down to the remaining 34 regular-season games and playoffs. The team can use his fiery ferocity if channeled correctly.
