Marcus Smart cleared to return for Team USA

A calf injury had kept Marcus Smart out for approximately 10 days, but he was given the green light on Saturday to make a full return to Team USA. With De'Aaron Fox recently withdrawing from the team, this will be a much needed boost for the roster. (NBA - NBC Sports)

Fantasy Impact:

Hopefully, Smart can stay healthy the rest of the way before the regular season begins. Teams will likely be more cautious with players who have calf injuries, considering what had occurred with Kevin Durant. With a good chance to see extra time on the court this season, Smart should be a solid late-round value pick in drafts.
