Marcus Smart Suffers Hand Lacerations Swiping At Picture Frame, Out Two Weeks

Marcus Smart Suffers Hand Lacerations Swiping At Picture Frame, Out Two Weeks

The Celtics are expecting Marcus Smart to miss "approximately two weeks" after lacerating his right hand on a picture frame in his room at the team hotel in Beverly Hills Wednesday. Among the 14 players chosen by the league's 30 head coaches for the game that will be played February 18 at Staples Center in Los Angeles, you can find Dominican basketball player, Al Horford.

The Celtics scratched out a 92-88 home win over the Warriors in November, putting them in position to sweep the two-game season series on Saturday.

Smart, one of the Celtics' best defenders, played a key role in the earlier win over the Warriors.

The Celtics countered with five players scoring in double-figures, led by Kyrie Irving's 20 points and Jayson Tatum's 18.

Boston and Golden State have remained the top teams in their respective conferences all season long. They will face a stiff test on Saturday night in a prime-time game against the Warriors, which will show if they've made some progress. A player whose game is contingent on creating handle and meandering through with his handle and agility needs a good knee with which to do it. "I don't even know what to say".

"It's a great opportunity for somebody else", said Stevens. His minutes will likely be replaced by Terry Rozier and Shane Larkin.

Forty-six games into his National Basketball Association career, Tatum has already played 600 more minutes than he did during his one-and-done season at Duke, with 1,500-plus minutes logged this season. "The team was trying to protect me, just due to the history of everything, but I'm just happy I'm able to go through practice, workouts, and be fine".

"We have a lot of talks about how we can all play better together", Stevens said, "but also how we can impact the game with corner crashes, cuts".

The Celtics would love for one of those bodies to be Smart, but that's not going to happen.

Celtics: C Al Horford hit his head in a loose-ball scramble in the closing seconds against the Lakers on Tuesday, but the team said he did not suffer a concussion.
