Update: According to multiple sources, Rondo has successfully underwent a surgical procedure to remove a screw from his repaired bone fracture in his left hand. The all-star should be available to return to action by next Wednesday when the Celtics take on the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Smart out Indefinitely
Update: 10:25 AM
ESPN reports after Smart's MRI results came back early this morning, that the guard has been diagnosed with a sprain and a bruised bone in his left ankle. According to Danny Ainge; the rookie will be out approximately 2-3 weeks
In the meantime coach Brad Stevens will have to sort through plenty of options for his rotation against the Bulls. Look for Phil Pressey to play some more quality minutes at the point after a good outing on Friday night against the Pacers. With Derrick Rose scheduled to play for Chicago, it should be an interesting match-up. The ball tips off at 8 P.M. tonight on CSNNE and WGN.
