Marcus Smart Suffers Severe Ankle Sprain in Boston Celtics Win

Marcus Smart suffered a gruesome ankle sprain Wednesday, but it looks like he will somehow only be out two weeks. Jared Weiss and Jimmy Toscano provided their reaction from the Garden on game night and broke down the win over the Indiana Pacers.

BOSTON – The Celtics won, but they suffered a big loss. Rookie phenom Marcus Smart was his usual aggressive self when he drove hard in transition. But an unfortunate landing spot on one of his strides had him roll his ankle as he pushed off to elevate. This caused an excruciatingly painful ankle sprain that initially looked like a break or tear.

The Garden Report reacted to the events that unfolded and reflected on the win. They discussed Jared Sullinger’s matchup against Roy Hibbert, Phil Pressey’s first big minutes and Rajon Rondo vs. Chris Copeland.
