Smart out indefinitely with torn thumb tendon

Fans around Boston got some troubling news on Monday when the team announced that Marcus Smart would be out indefinitely with a hand injury.

Irving (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

"(They're) waiting for that second opinion", the source said yesterday.

Team officials said Irving, who had seven points in 16 minutes against in, had left knee soreness and was not returning.

Himmelsbach reported the situation "doesn't look good" for Smart.

This injury is to the same thumb Smart injured when he punched a wall at an L.A. hotel in January, which forced Smart to miss 11 games.

Woods, Els to captain Australia Presidents Cup
At No. 2, a beefy par 3 of 234 yards, Woods somehow coaxed in a 12-footer and Els, knocking knees and all, equaled it from 5 feet. That's more than any other player. "One of the greatest moments this sport has ever seen". "That's a lot of pressure".

Sunday's setback was a costly one, considering not just Irving's departure and Smart's injury, but a the loss of Daniel Theis for the season. "Just don't know." The expectation is that Smart tore a ligament in his thumb, which the Celtics are calling a sprain, and he's now visiting with a specialist in NY to determine if surgery will be required.

Smart is one of Boston's best defenders, and always seems to make a key play whenever the Celtics need it most.

Al Horford, who missed the IN game because of an illness, was listed as questionable.
