The Boston Celtics will face the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday evening without Marcus Smart. The Celtics’ dynamic guard suffered a calf injury against the Los Angeles Lakers in the fourth quarter on Saturday night.
Boston head coach Brad Stevens announced an update on Smart’s condition on Monday, saying the veteran security guard had not traveled to San Francisco with the team.
The Oklahoma State product averages 13.1 points at 39.4% out of the field with 6.1 assists, 2.8 rebounds, and 1.8 steals per game for Boston.
With Smart Out, the Celtics will try to face Golden State’s Stephen Curry without their best full-back. Kemba Walker, Jeff Teague and Aaron Neismith are expected to get longer playing time with Smart out.
