The situation of Marcus Smart, and therefore the Boston Celtics, is complicated at times. According to the Boston Herald’s Mark Murphy, the Massachusetts franchise is not sure if he will be back to play this season.
The aforementioned journalist, citing sources from the league, points out that the greens are still waiting for a second opinion. At the moment they don’t have the slightest idea of how long it will take to recover; So much so that they claim to ignore if there is a 50 or 30 percent chance.
You have to be cautious, but the percentages that are sounding are already worrisome. Smart, defensive valuation of the Celtics, suffered a tear in the tendon of the right thumb in the game played against Indiana Pacers, a disease that now threatens his season.
Previously we have seen players who have continued playing matches despite having injuries in their fingers. Smart is a tough guy and before saying goodbye he will try surely to play, but everything will depend on how serious the tear is. In addition, the fact that he will be a restricted free agent in summer could weigh in the decision.
