Fantasy Impact:

Marcus Smart sat out Tuesday's Game 1 with a right mid-foot sprain but appears ready to return for Game 2. Facing an 0-1 series deficit, Boston will surely benefit from the Defensive Player of the Year's return to try and slow down Miami's Jimmy Butler. Payton Pritchard will likely see a decrease in minutes and role with Smart's return. Al Horford (protocols) will remain out so there will still be a team minutes void to fill.
