It has been several hours since our last breathless injury update, so here’s one with some good news. Marcus Smart is very confident that he’ll return for the playoffs. In fact, he says the exact same thing in the quote below.
“I am confident [I’ll be back for the playoffs],” Smart said Monday night, his right arm completely wrapped, at his annual bowling fundraiser for his YounGameChanger foundation. “I had one of the top [hand] doctors do it. The surgery was a success. Like she told me, you might as well go on and get it now. The quicker you can get it, the quicker the recovery.
”I’m real, real, real excited and eager to get back out there, whenever that is, hopefully it’s sooner than later, like I said. Hopefully the team can and, like I think they’re gonna do, is handle their business and have me back [in the postseason].”
He also says that he’s working out with Gordon Hayward, which is pretty cool too.
