Marcus Smart, Celtics await second opinion on

With the injuries starting to pile up at this stage of the season, head coach Brad Stevens will have another opportunity to show his brilliance and help the Celtics find new ways to win games in the team's final 15 games.

The injury came at a cruel time for Smart, who has been playing some of his best basketball after the All-Star break.

The Celtics also lost backup center Daniel Theis to season-ending surgery to fix a torn meniscus.

Boston Celtics point guard Marcus Smart has suffered a torn tendon in his right thumb and is out indefinitely, reports Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports. Smart is in integral part of Boston's overall success and his absence is another big blow to the Celtics bench.

Smart injured his thumb during the Celtics' loss the Indiana Pacers on Sunday night (Monday, PHL time). It's now second in the Eastern Conference standings, 3 1/2 games behind the Raptors. In his third season, Rozier has taken a major step in his development, averaging 10.6 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 2.5 assists in 24.4 minutes.

Smart has struggled to score efficiently at the National Basketball Association level, shooting 36.0 percent from the field and 29.3 percent from three-point range since the Celtics selected him with the sixth overall pick in the 2014 National Basketball Association draft.
