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.

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.

Marcus Smart suffers calf injury, out indefinitely for Team USA

Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart has suffered an apparent calf injury today while practicing with Team USA. This comes as unfortunate news for the five-year guard who already missed yesterday's practice due to a minor ankle injury.

Fantasy Impact

Smart is coming off perhaps his best season so far after posting career highs in games played (80), games started (60), field goal percentage (42.2), three-point percentage (36.4) and steals (1.8 per game) in addition to being named to the NBA All-Defensive First Team for the first time of his career. The calf injury doesn't sound too serious given the one week timeline until he is re-evaluated again, but if the injury lingers Smart may miss out on representing Team USA at the FIBA World Cup in China later this month. Given the massive increase in offensive efficiency and reputable defensive prowess, Smart figures to play an important role this coming season for the Celtics. Fantasy owners should keep an eye on him this coming season as Smart is only 25 years of age, and with his rapid growth in offensive efficiency last season, we may be seeing the birth of a two-way star.

Marcus Smart (oblique) will miss at least 4-to-6 weeks

Marcus Smart has been ruled out for at least four weeks and as many as six weeks due to a partial avulsion of his left oblique abdominal muscle off of his iliac crest. With Smart out, Jaylen Brown, Gordon Hayward, and Terry Rozier will be asked to step up.

Fantasy Impact

It's a tough loss for the Celtics as Smart is one of their better role players off the bench but Brown, Hayward, Rozier, Marcus Morris, and Jayson Tatum get a boost.
