According to a source, while the #Celtics remain out west on their road trip, Marcus Smart is back in Boston. He flew home from LA this evening, with his right arm in a sling. Seemingly he’ll miss the rest of the trip.— Adam Kaufman (@AdamMKaufman) January 26, 2018
Smart suffered a laceration on his right hand Wednesday afternoon before the team’s game against the Clippers that night. It’s unclear how Smart injured himself, but Brad Stevens said that it happened on glass, and now we know that it was his shooting hand that received stitches.
Boston still has two games remaining on their west coast road trip, facing off against the Warriors Saturday and the Nuggets on Monday. The Celtics will then have three straight home games before a major eastern conference clash with the Toronto Raptors, so hopefully Smart will get back on the court by then.
