Marcus Smart Heading To New York For Second Opinion On Thumb Injury

Marcus Smart Heading To New York For Second Opinion On Thumb Injury”

Boston will have to find a way to keep the ship steady and maintain their second spot in the East, considering the see-saw battle taking place in spots 3-to-8.

The C's hard-nosed guard injured his thumb during Boston's loss to the Indiana Pacers on Sunday night.

Smart will head to the Big Apple to have another examination done on his right thumb, according to's David Aldridge. Wojnarowski reports that the Celtics believe it is nothing more than knee tendonitis and that Irving is day-to-day and won't need to miss much time.

In his first season with Boston, Irving leads the team with 24.8 points and 5.1 assists per game. Smart is now going over his treatment options with the Celtics medical staff, but with no clear timetable to return, he should be sent to the waiver wire in most cases.

Overall in his two years at Vanderbilt, Baldwin posted 11.6 points, 4.8 dimes, 4.1 boards and 1.3 steals per game.

In the final hour: Don't look now, but the injuries are mounting for the Celtics this week.

The 6-foot-9 Theis' absence will likely lead to more minutes for Aron Baynes and Greg Monroe.
