Will Marcus Smart play again this season? Celtics 'just don't know'

They are still waiting for a second opinion after he suffered a torn tendon in his right thumb, but his chances of a return don't look great.

That is, if he can ever get out of a snowy Boston.

Sports reported Monday that Smart has a torn tendon and will seek a second opinion.

Smart sprained his right thumb during Sunday night's loss to the Indiana Pacers. With Marcus Smart (thumb) also uncertain for Wednesday's contest, Terry Rozier should be in line for big minutes in the backcourt.

You know things are not going well on the injury front in Boston when the "good" news is Kyrie Irving is only going to miss a few games with knee soreness.

Joining him on the bench will be shooting guard Jaylen Brown (concussion), forward Gordon Hayward, hybrid guard Marcus Smart, and forward Daniel Theis - the last three in risk of missing the remainder of the season. Wojnarowski reports that the Celtics believe it is nothing more than knee tendonitis and that Irving is day-to-day and won't need to miss much time. Smart is now going over his treatment options with the Celtics medical staff, but with no clear timetable to return, he should be sent to the waiver wire in most cases.
