Marcus Smart expected to miss 2 weeks for injury: 'I'm embarrassed'

Smart did not play in Boston's 113-102 over the Clippers on Wednesday.

The Celtics big man was selected to the reserves in a vote by coaches and will join teammate Kyrie Irving, who was chosen as a starter, in the annual showcase at Staples Center on February 18. "You're going to need to throw as many bodies at those guys as possible". We could have lost about 11 of them. They still stay at the top of the Eastern Conference, and have the personnel to turn things around. That's known. I think saying he's been as advertised, with 24.5 points per game and a career-best 47.7 field goal percentage out of the gate, is nearly selling him short. Griffin was just 1 of 7 from 3-point range.

The Warriors and Celtics have split the last two season series. The way we moved the ball and shared.

In leaving the Cavaliers, Kyrie Irving wanted to develop into a leader for his new team, which he has done with the Celtics.

"Everything cleared up, and I didn't have a concussion", said Horford, who has had two concussions over the past two seasons.

Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart is expected to miss two weeks of play while his hand heals from an injury that he called embarrassing. The team said it is investigating the incident.

Gordon Hayward is still rehabbing a fractured left ankle, but he took another step in his comeback by making the trip for the LA games against the Lakers and Clippers. F Danilo Gallinari said his glute injury is improving, but there is still no timetable for his return.

Over the course of a long 82- game season, players and coaches are forced to fight through fatigue, shooting slumps, and losing streaks.

Jordan finished with 15 points and 14 rebounds, playing 31 minutes. He can make a huge impact, and I think he's aware of that. "He didn't get behind the defense a lot tonight, but I was happy to have him on the floor".

The spotlight will be even brighter than in Los Angeles when the Celtics meet the Warriors in Oakland tomorrow evening, and Tatum could only nod when apprised of Stevens' comments. Despite missing Horford, they outrebounded Los Angeles 47-40.

Now we know. It was a picture frame. But any chance that he gets around us, it's good to have him. "We needed to. We didn't do enough the last couple of games".

Boston edged out Golden State 92-88 during their first meeting at the TD Garden, and will have a tall task doing so again on the road without a two-way player in Smart.
