The Celtics are already without backup guard Marcus Smart for the next two weeks after he sustained a self-inflicted injury to his shooting hand, which will give starter Kyrie Irving a heavier minute load against the defending champions. The possibilities were endless.

I want to take this time to express my sincerest apologies to my teammates, coaches, and most of all the awesome Boston Celtics fans. I love y'all and I truly appreciate all the support.

He fought a picture frame and the frame clearly won. Tony Schena and Drew Terono at New England Baptist Hospital, it was determined that Smart's timeline for a return to action is approximately two weeks.

"Disappointed, as you can imagine obviously", said the coach. "That's probably the right word for it".

Asked if there were concerns about Smart's temper given past flare-ups, including punching a hole in a wall after being sent to the locker room early during a game in, Stevens said Smart needs to channel his emotions properly. It is what it is.

Stevens also added that the team will not rule out internally disciplining Smart.

"Everything cleared up, and I didn't have a concussion", said Horford, who has had two concussions over the past two seasons. We'll see when he gets back, when he's due back and everything else, and we'll talk about it in the meantime about what we're going to do.

Unfortunately for Boston, they'll be without their best defensive player when they take on the Warriors on Saturday.
