Marcus Smart played just 23 minutes against the Kings on Friday with three points, three assists and one 3-pointer.
Now that Jae Crowder doesn't have a minutes limit and Al Horford is back, Smart's minutes have taken a noticeable hit. He's also been awful from the field, making just 28.9 percent from the field for 8.0 points in his last five outings. Smart is a drop candidate for owners in shallower formats. Dec 2 - 11:06 PM

Marcus Smart struggled from the field on Wednesday, making 4-of-14 shots to finish with 12 points, two 3-pointers, three assists, two rebounds and one steal.

Smart launched seven triples in his first 11 minutes on the court, which probably isn't what Brad Stevens drew up for the career 29.6 percent 3-point shooter. He took a hit to the back of his head tonight but stayed in the game and should be fine -- we'll let you know if his status is jeopardized for Friday's game vs. the Kings.
Nov 30 - 10:38 PM

Marcus Smart played 33 minutes off the bench on Monday and had 12 points, two rebounds, four assists, a steal and a 3-pointer for the Celtics.

He snapped a four-game streak in single-digit scoring, but posted an otherwise lackluster line. He looks like a buy-low player to us right now, although the fact he'll never be a dynamic scorer hurts his fantasy ceiling quite a bit. But the minutes are there and the production should follow, even if he's not a dynamic scorer. He was in foul trouble tonight, finishing with five of them, or his line might have been a little better.

Marcus Smart scored nine points with four rebounds, 10 assists and one steal in 27 minutes against the Spurs on Friday.

Coach Brad Stevens calls him the sixth starter, he closed this game out, and he is one of five Celtics to get more than 20 minutes today. Smart is not shooting the ball well at all in his last four, making just 9-of-37 (24.3 percent) from the field. On the other hand, he has 18 assists in his last two and appears locked in to his role of minutes in the low 30s. If you're OK with some awful shooting, Smart is worth a very long look.
Nov 25 - 3:25 PM

Marcus Smart scored four points with eight rebounds, eight assists, two steals, one block and one turnover against the Nets on Wednesday.

Based on coach Brad Stevens' comments, Smart will be sticking on the bench for a while. "He bring an intensity level that makes your team better when he comes off the bench," Stevens said. Smart hasn't quite hit his stride yet, but he has upside for steals, treys and dimes. He's a borderline player to own depending on your needs.
Nov 24 - 12:19 AM

Marcus Smart hit 3-of-9 shots and three 3-pointers for nine points, six rebounds, five assists, a steal and six turnovers in 31 minutes off the bench Monday.

Smart isn't going to blow you away with dynamic scoring every night and his shot isn't falling much right now. But he's averaging 8.0 points, 5.2 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.8 steals, 0.6 blocks and 1.6 3-pointers over his last five games. He's shooting just 33 percent during that stretch, but he's not a high volume shooter, which should keep him from ruining your field goal percentage. If he shows up on your waiver wire and is healthy, grab him.

Marcus Smart could not get his shot to drop on Saturday, going just 1-of-9 from the field on his way to two points, seven boards, three assists and two blocks in 31 minutes.

Smart's only make came at the five-minute mark of the fourth quarter, and it's pretty obvious that his value will take a hit with everyone in Boston healthy again. The awful shooting (40.0 percent from the field, 47.1 percent from the stripe) really weighs down his value, but he should be able to do enough with the triples and steals to warrant ownership in standard leagues.

Marcus Smart (ankle) will play against the Pistons on Saturday.

It took until Nov. 19, but the Celtics are finally at full strength with their rotation. Smart played a ton of minutes in three-guard lineups, but that may change with Jae Crowder back in action. Smart is still worth owning in standard leagues and hopefully he doesn't slump.
Nov 19 - 5:43 PM

Marcus Smart (left ankle contusion) will join the Celtics on their three-game road trip.

Coach Brad Stevens called Smart's injury a bruise and said the guard will be re-evaluated on Saturday morning. We'll consider him questionable for Saturday's game vs. Detroit, but expect Terry Rozier and Jaylen Brown to see an uptick in minutes if Smart can't go.
Nov 18 - 10:47 PM

Marcus Smart (ankle) will not return to Friday's game vs. the Warriors.

The Celtics are calling it a left ankle contusion. He went to the locker room and the Celtics ruled him out pretty quickly, but hopefully they did that because the game was out of reach. This is the same ankle that bothered Smart at the beginning of the season, but we should get an update soon. Terry Rozier and Jaylen Brown could pick up some run if Smart misses time. He finished with 10 points (4-of-10 FGs) with two steals, one assist and two triples.
Nov 18 - 9:58 PM

Marcus Smart shot just 1-of-6 from the field for four points on Wednesday, but he also had seven boards, four assists, two steals and one block in 36 minutes.

Smart has been improved from the field this year at 41.7 percent, but he's shooting an abysmal 46.2 percent from the FT line and owners will need to accept that he's a burden in the percentage categories. Otherwise, there's nothing to dislike with 12.9 points, 2.0 triples, 4.1 boards, 3.6 assists and 1.4 steals per game. Expect a slight dip in those numbers when Jae Crowder returns.
Nov 16 - 11:50 PM

Marcus Smart scored 15 points with six rebounds, three assists, four steals, three triples and two turnovers on Monday vs. Boston.

He was 6-of-12 from the field and played a whopping 37 minutes. Smart has filled in admirably for the injured Jae Crowder (ankle), averaging 13.8 points, 4.4 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.8 steals and 2.0 treys over his last five games. Even with Crowder targeting Wednesday's game vs. Dallas for his return, Smart should be owned in standard leagues.
Nov 14 - 11:28 PM

Marcus Smart scored nine points with two rebounds, two assists, one steal and no turnovers in 34 minutes against the Pacers on Saturday.

Coach Brad Stevens has loved his three-guard lineup and used it more than any other three-man combo in the previous three games. Now that Smart is healthy, Boston's defense seems to have things figured out. He should be owned in standard leagues.
Nov 12 - 11:20 PM

Marcus Smart started on Friday vs. the Knicks and went off for 12 points, 10 assists, six rebounds, three steals and two triples in 34 minutes.

He likes this starting thing. Jae Crowder (ankle) is targeting a return on Nov. 16 against the Mavs, so Smart probably earned himself two more starts against the Pacers on Saturday and vs. the Pelicans on Monday. He was shooting 41.7 percent from the field coming into tonight's game and hit 5-of-13 FGs vs. the Knicks, but if you don't mind the anchor on your FG percentage, he should be picked up.
Nov 11 - 11:15 PM

Marcus Smart is starting over Jaylen Brown on Friday against the Knicks.

The Celtics use a Smart, Isaiah Thomas and Avery Bradley lineup for a whopping 21 minutes on Wednesday. Smart is certainly capable of guarding up a position or two while Avery Bradley could guard Carmelo Anthony as well. Smart is going in off a great game and is playing better, so he's worth an add in standard leagues.
