Marcus Smart (ankle) popped up on the injury report and is probable for Saturday against the Blazers.
For now, we're fully expecting him to play. This could be some wear-and-tear from Smart's ankle injury at the beginning of the season, but his workload lately suggests he's fine. He could have a big game against the Blazers today, especially with Avery Bradley (Achilles) out. He's worth a look in standard leagues depending on format and team fit. Jan 21 - 2:59 PM

Date:

Marcus Smart started on Wednesday and notched four points, five assists, three rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 32 minutes vs. the Knicks.

He didn't commit any turnovers and the only caveat is that he shot 1-of-6 without any 3-pointers. Avery Bradley was out again with a sore Achilles and it's possible he'll miss more games, so Smart is a solid pickup for short-term value. In 14 starts this season, he's averaging a solid 11.4 points, 1.4 triples, 3.9 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 2.1 steals.
Jan 18 - 11:32 PM

Marcus Smart will start Wednesday's game in place of Avery Bradley (Achilles).

Bradley can't shake the injury and his absence opens things up for Smart, who is a nice plug-and-play option until the Celtics' backcourt is at full strength.
Jan 18 - 7:19 PM

Marcus Smart hit just 1-of-5 shots for two points, five rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block in 27 minutes off the bench on Monday.

With Avery Bradley back from his achilles injury, Smart took a hit by returning to the bench. He still filled the stat sheet and is still a player worth owning in most 12-team leagues, although he's not going to be quite as fun to own as he was when Bradley was in street clothes.
Jan 16 - 10:33 PM

Marcus Smart will return to the bench for Monday's game against the Hornets.

Avery Bradley (Achilles) is back following a four-game stint on the sidelines, so Smart will head back to the bench and his value will take a hit. As a reserve this season, Smart owns averages of 9.3 points, 4.3 dimes, 1.0 steal, 1.2 triples and 1.9 turnovers per contest on 34.8 percent shooting.
Jan 16 - 6:19 PM

Marcus Smart scored nine points on 2-of-13 from the field against the Hawks on Friday, adding two rebounds, four assists, four steals and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

Yeah, that two-game stretch with 19.0 points per game on Saturday and Tuesday seems like a distant memory. Smart has made just 5-of-25 (20 percent) from the field in his last two and Avery Bradley (Achilles) could be back for Monday, so expect Smart's minutes to drop closer to 30 again. He's worth a look if you're punting field goal percentage.
Jan 14 - 12:55 AM

Marcus Smart started in place of Avery Bradley (achilles) and hit 6-of-11 shots, a 3-pointer and 3-of-3 free throws for 16 points, four rebounds, five assists, four steals and a block in 38 minutes on Tuesday.

Smart has been on fire lately, scoring 16, 22 and 14 points in each of his last three games, totaling 11 rebounds, 19 assists, seven steals, four blocks and eight 3-pointers over that stretch. Bradley could be back on Wednesday night, but Smart is playing well right now and is worth owning again.
Jan 10 - 10:10 PM

Marcus Smart had his best offensive game of the season on Saturday, making 7-of-10 from the field for 22 points with five rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block and five 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

Wow. He made all three free throws to give him a fantastic 90.1 true shooting percentage tonight. Avery Bradley (Achilles) did not play on Saturday and the Celtics will be taking it easy on him. Based on how carefully they treated Isaiah Thomas last month, Bradley may miss additional time. If Smart can have even half this type of efficiency, he'll be a stud. He's worth a pickup in standard leagues.
Jan 7 - 10:23 PM

Marcus Smart will start for Avery Bradley on Saturday against the Pelicans.

In his last start, Smart played 34 minutes against the Heat with six points, four rebounds, two assists and two steals. He should be looking at a similar amount of playing time and makes a lot of sense as a DFS punt tonight. If he's on the waiver wire in season-long leagues, it makes sense to pick him up.
Jan 7 - 5:47 PM

Marcus Smart (illness) scored nine points on 3-of-5 shooting with three assists, one rebound, one steal and one triple in 28 minutes against the Jazz on Tuesday.

He was admitted to the hospital on Sunday and didn't return to the Celtics until Tuesday, so give him some credit for toughing it out. Smart averaged just 8.9 points, 4.4 assists, 3.6 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 0.9 triples on 36.8 percent shooting in December, so most standard-league owners can do better.
Jan 3 - 11:00 PM

Marcus Smart (gastroenteritis) will be available to play Tuesday night vs. Utah.

Smart was hospitalized Sunday and didn't practice on Monday due to the stomach ailment, but has recovered enough to suit up on Tuesday. Avery Bradley (illness) will return from a one-game absence and start at shooting guard. It is unknown if Smart's minutes will be limited off the bench, as it seems unlikely he'll be at 100 percent.
Jan 3 - 5:45 PM

Marcus Smart (gastroenteritis) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Jazz.

Smart was admitted to the hospital on Sunday night due to the stomach issue, and missed practice on Monday. Fortunately for Boston, Avery Bradley (illness) is on track to return Tuesday and would slide back into the starting lineup. If Smart is unavailable, Terry Rozier would see an uptick in minutes off the Boston bench.

Marcus Smart (illness) was admitted to the hospital on Sunday night.

He has a gastrointestinal issue and wasn't at practice on Monday. It sounds like he's in danger of missing Tuesday's game vs. the Jazz, but luckily for the Celtics, Avery Bradley (illness) is expected to return. Terry Rozier should get a bump off the bench if Smart sits.
Jan 2 - 1:29 PM

Marcus Smart made 1-of-7 from the field for six points in a start for Avery Bradley (illness) against the Heat on Friday, adding four rebounds, two assists and two steals in 34 minutes.

He was actually a better shooter in the starting lineup with a 40.9 field goal percentage in his previous nine starts while making just 34.2 percent off the bench. Smart's abysmal shooting will always cap his upside, but he's worth a look if you're punting there or in a points league.

With Avery Bradley (illness) out, Marcus Smart will start on Friday vs. the Heat.

Smart has started nine games this season. In those nine starts, he is averaging 10.8 points, 4.7 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 2.0 steals in 32.9 minutes per game. He is looking at 30-plus minutes on Friday and while the upside is not huge, he does have a relatively high floor, which makes him an intriguing streaming option and DFS play.
