Marcus Smart's Chances Of Returning This Season Aren't Great

But now he's one of the many players on the mend, joining Kyrie Irving (knee), Jaylen Brown (concussion), Al Horford (illness), and Shane Larking (knee) on Boston's injured list.

The Celtics also lost backup center Daniel Theis to season-ending surgery to fix a torn meniscus. Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania was the first to report the potential tear.

The Boston Celtics will not have guard Marcus Smart in the lineup for quite some time after he reportedly tore a tendon in his thumb.

The loss of Smart could be potentially devastating for the Celtics.

Smart will head to the Big Apple to have another examination done on his right thumb, according to NBA.com's David Aldridge.

To be more accurate, the injury occurred when Smart went for a diving steal in what was ultimately a 99-97 Boston lost to Indiana Sunday. Those are questions only Smart and the Celtics' doctors. Smart is now going over his treatment options with the Celtics medical staff, but with no clear timetable to return, he should be sent to the waiver wire in most cases.

Smart is averaging 10.2 points, 4.8 assists and 3.5 rebounds in 29.9 minutes this season.
