Positive news for the Celtics: First-team All-Defensive guard Marcus Smart has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 left calf strain, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium. He will miss some time, but sigh of relief for all.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) January 31, 2021
Marcus Smart's injury - You can see the calf (specifically the medial gastrocnemius, most common site of calf strain) "pop" when the injury occurs. Notice the pop is NOT down lower in the Achilles. pic.twitter.com/t0cEoSfz1C— Brian Sutterer MD (@b_sutterer) January 31, 2021
Boston called timeout while Smart remained on the court before being helped by two people to the Celtics locker room, while never putting any weight on his left leg the whole way towards the back.
