The news keeps getting worse for the Boston Celtics.
Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart wants to see how his injured right thumb responds over the next few days and receive a second opinion before deciding on a plan for moving forward, according to the Boston Globe's Adam Himmelsbach. "It's like a sprain right now". Irving is expected to miss some time while his knee heals. 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.
Sunday's setback was a costly one, considering not just Irving's departure and Smart's injury, but a the loss of Daniel Theis for the season.
The 24-year-old is averaging 10.2 points, 3.5 rebounds and 4.8 assists over 54 games, including 11 starts, this season, his fourth with the Celtics.
The Celtics have succeeded this season despite some notable injuries. Theis suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee. Either way, he's looking at a lengthy absence and should be cut in most leagues.
