What percentage is Marcus Smart? "It's low." Said the ankle does feel better though.
Marcus Smart did a bit of straight line running today. Still looking at next week for possible return.
Ainge on Marcus Smart's ankle: "I'd be surprised if he was ready this weekend. … I think he's probably at least a week away."
Marcus Smart tells Herald he doesn't see how he'll be able to make it back for Sunday's game. It was a longshot anyway.
Stevens says Marcus Smart could be back as soon as Sunday v Portland, but more likely later next week.
Welcome to the NBA, rooks: Julius Randle, Marcus Smart, Aaron Gordon & now Cleanthony Early. All dealt significant injuries (Smart less so).
Bummed that Marcus Smart is out for the Celtics. Would have been a great matchup of styles with the Suns guards.
Let's not jump to major conclusions after 1st game. Remember, Marcus Smart drilled 5 3's vs. Memphis--and we all thought he fixed his shot.
Jared Sullinger on his conversations with Marcus Smart: "He understands it's a long season and you can't rush (coming back)."
Thornton said he heard one teammate joke with Marcus Smart that he needed a stretcher for sprained ankle. Rookie didn't laugh.
Marcus Smart: I just thank God it wasn't worse.
