Celtics guard Marcus Smart (leg injury) out at least two weeks

Monday November 23rd, 2015

Celtics point guard Marcus Smart will miss at least two weeks due to a leg injury, head coach Brad Stevens announced Sunday.

Smart suffered a partial dislocation of the left knee in Friday’s 120–95 victory after a knee-to-knee hit with Nets forward Thomas Robinson.

“They say a couple weeks-plus,” Stevens said, according to ESPN.com. “And there’s no real end beyond a couple of weeks. It could be a couple weeks, it could be longer than that. Hopefully it gets a lot better sooner because obviously he's a big loss for us.”

Smart has played in nine of Boston’s 13 games this season and made eight starts. He is averaging 9.8 points and 3.2 assists per game.
