Celtics' Marcus Smart (hand) not expected back until after All-Star break
Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens said guard Marcus Smart will be re-evaluated on Friday, but "the anticipation is that he will not be available until after the All-Star break."
Smart has been out since late January, when he cut his hand while swiping at a hotel-room picture frame. He did avoid being traded at the deadline, but the Celtics will have to wait a little longer to get him back on the floor. Until then, Terry Rozier will log heavy minutes behind and with Kyrie Irving.
Smart is averaging 10.1 points, 4.7 assists and 3.6 rebounds per game through 46 games this season.
