But that ankle injury is still somewhat bothersome to the rookie. Following Sunday night's loss, Smart acknowledged that he was experiencing some pain. "A little bit when I woke up; it was a little sore," Smart said. "It didn't swell, but it was definitely a little sore. But that's expected." When asked whether he was physically back to where he was before the injury, Smart said he's "not all the way but I'm here." CSNNE.com

The Celtics do not plan on practicing Thursday and will hold only a walk through session prior to Friday’s game, so there isn’t much of a window for Smart to make up for lost time. Still, Smart is optimistic he’ll be able to impact his first career game against the Lakers. “It’€™s the rivalry,” he said. “We’€™ve got 17 [championships]; they’€™ve got 16. Everybody knows that. I’€™m excited. I definitely feel like I’€™ll be ready Friday to give a little bit more, but it really comes down to how coach feels and if he feels like I’€™m able to give more.” WEEI.com
