Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart has tested positive for coronavirus.

Earlier on Thursday evening the Boston Celtics released a statement that one of their players had tested positive for COVID-19:

The positive coronavirus test is the latest in a long string of injuries and ailments for Smart this season. He previously missed time this year with an eye infection. Smart has also battled a series of bumps and bruises, most notably to his hip.

Smart is in his sixth year with the Celtics. The scrappy guard has become a Boston fan favorite for his all-out style of play. Smart has regularly professed his love for the only NBA city he’s called home. Many Celtics fans refer to Smart as the team’s captain, despite that honor never having been bestowed upon him.

The NBA has been on hiatus since last Wednesday, March 11.
