Marcus Smart to play tonight, expects to miss more games this season due to ankle
Marcus Smart said he's playing tonight, but anticipates having to miss games occasionally during the remainder of the season to minimize ankle swelling. Said he had an MRI that just showed a "really bad bone bruise" but no structural issue.
Well in the short term this is good news, but I the hate the idea of a lingering season long injury. Curious to see what Joe Mazzulla and eventually Brad Stevens say about the ankle issue and season maintenance.
