Marcus Smart scores 14 points in preseason win

Marcus Smart scored 14 points on 5-for-9 shooting with four assists, two rebounds, and one steal in 21 minutes during Friday's 100-75 preseason win over Orlando

Fantasy Impact

Smart started at point guard with Kemba Walker out with a knee issue. The 25-year-old guard will have a big role with the team this season and should be drafted in all leagues and should have a big impact in steals and assists categories.

Marcus Smart shut down for rest of FIBA World Cup

Marcus Smart has reportedly been shut down for Team USA's final two games at the FIBA World Cup. He underwent X-rays on a left knuckle injury that came back negative. However, Smart is dealing with hand soreness as well as a calf strain, which effectively led to him ending his participation for Team USA.

Fantasy Impact

This is most likely the right path for Smart to take, as he should be fully prepared for training camp in a few weeks.

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 will play Monday’s Game 4

Marcus Smart (oblique) will play Monday’s Game 4 against the Bucks.

Fantasy Impact

Smart who suffered the oblique injury during the end of the regular season, is listed as active and will play Monday’s Game 4 against the Bucks. He averaged 8.9 points, 4.0 assists, and 2.9 rebounds in 80 game of the 2018-2019 regular season. Smart won’t be on a minute restriction, but will play a key role off the Celtics bench. He can be used as a punt play in Monday’s NBA DFS slate.
