Marcus Smart Out Indefinitely With A Torn Tendon In His Right Thumb

Celtics guard Marcus Smart

Getting Irving healthy for an impending playoff run is Boston's main priority and its not going to throw caution to the wind as a response to the staggering quantity of maladies that have recently befallen its roster.

It was reported Monday that forward Daniel Theis will have to undergo season-ending knee surgery, and the news on Marcus Smart's injured right thumb doesn't sound any better.

Irving left Sunday's 99-97 loss to the Indiana Pacers at halftime after the knee soreness that caused him to miss last Monday's game in Chicago flared up again.

Theis and Smart were both hurt in Sunday's game, with Smart's injury occurring when he dove to the floor. Although he returned to the game after having his thumb taped, Yahoo! Initially, there were differing reports about the nature and severity of the injury, as well as how long Smart might be sidelined because of it. "It's like a sprain right now".

Vikings offer Kirk Cousins 3-year, $86M deal
They are expected to sign the veteran when free agency opens on Wednesday, per an National Football League source. It is not certain yet what sort of contract that Keenum, who made $2 million last season, will get.

Irving was projected for 38.5 FanDuel points on Wednesday.

Smart is prepared to play through the injury, though if it is determined he suffered a complete tear instead of a partial one, his season likely is finished, with surgery the primary option.

Those numbers ballooned to 7.8 points and 5.3 rebounds since the All-Star break. Either way, he's looking at a lengthy absence and should be cut in most leagues.

The 21-year-old, who played his collegiate basketball at Vanderbilt, was originally selected by the Memphis Grizzlies in the first round (17th pick overall) of the 2016 NBA Draft.
