#Celtics guard Marcus Smart said about a 3-inch shard of glass was pulled out of his hand by doctors after he punched picture frame. Said it was between tendons. If had clipped one, told he would have needed season-ending surgery. Considers himself very fortunate.
Forsberg and others have reported similar in the past few hours.
Ugh, the thought about the glass shard and pulling it out.. makes me sick.
But apparently if it clipped/hit a tendon, that could have been it for Smart this season
Close call. Not just for our season right now, but I'd assume it would have had a ton of implications on Smart's next contract as well, since he hits FA this summer.
Either way, glad he was fortunate and am happy he's getting healthy. Now we need him to come back and help us with getting that defense together and energizing this team again with his hustle/intensity.
We could certainly use some "winning plays" from him as well.
Despite what numerous posters say here, we MISSED Marcus Smart, and I for one am ecstatic that he's coming back.
