The veteran point guard suffered a left hip contusion in the team's 120-116 overtime loss to the Miami Heat at TD Garden Friday. Smart took a fall toward the end of the first half, but played through the pain the rest of the game.

Smart was listed as questionable Saturday before being downgraded to out ahead of the Celtics' first of of a six-game road trip. The reigning Defensive Player of the Year is off to a good start, averaging 11.8 points and a career-high 7.7 assists while shooting a personal-best 44.9% from the field, despite missing only two outings due to an ankle injury last month.
