Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reported that Smart had a torn tendon in his right thumb, while former colleague and current ESPN reporter Adrian Wojnarowski indicated that the team was calling it a "sprain" and was now in the process of obtaining a second opinion and deciding whether Smart might be able to play through the pain. Smart is one of Boston's best defenders, and always seems to make a key play whenever the Celtics need it most. "It's like a sprain right now".

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

The Celtics hobbled through with a 6-5 record during that stretch, testament to how much they will miss Smart again, and with only 15 games left in the regular season.

Theis and Smart were both hurt in Sunday's game, with Smart's injury occurring when he dove to the floor.
