Celtics Guard Marcus Smart Questionable for Game 2 vs. Bucks

After a physical Game 1, Celtics coach Ime Udoka said he expects guard Marcus Smart to be questionable for Game 2 against the Bucks on Tuesday.

Smart, the 2021–22 NBA Defensive Player of the Year, was dealing with a right quad contusion during Boston’s 101–89 loss on Sunday. He took two hits to the area on back-to-back plays in the third quarter, which left him with soreness on Monday morning, per Udoka.

“He’s a tough guy who’s gonna try to play through things,” Udoka said during a press conference Monday. “We’ll get him some treatment today and see how he feels tomorrow, but he’ll be listed as questionable.”
