Marcus Smart diagnosed with torn tendon

Even if the diagnosis is confirmed to be a torn right thumb, Smart may not necessarily require surgery and could play through the injury.

Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reported that Smart had a torn tendon in his right thumb, while former colleague and current ESPN reporter Adrian Wojnarowski indicated that the team was calling it a "sprain" and was now in the process of obtaining a second opinion and deciding whether Smart might be able to play through the pain. Wojnarowski reports that the Celtics believe it is nothing more than knee tendonitis and that Irving is day-to-day and won't need to miss much time. News of Smart's injury trickled out Monday, shortly after it was announced big man Daniel Theis would miss the rest of the season with a torn meniscus.

Overall in his two years at Vanderbilt, Baldwin posted 11.6 points, 4.8 dimes, 4.1 boards and 1.3 steals per game.

Smart is averaging 10.2 points per game for the Celtics, and he is their best on-ball perimeter defender.


In the final hour: Don't look now, but the injuries are mounting for the Celtics this week.

Those numbers ballooned to 7.8 points and 5.3 rebounds since the All-Star break.
