Marcus Smart To Return for Celtics Vs. Knicks After 18-Game Absence

by NESN Staff

December 27, 2015

As expected, Marcus Smart will return to the court Sunday night.

The Boston Celtics’ second-year guard missed the team’s previous 18 games after suffering a subluxation of the proximal tibiofibular joint in his left knee following a knee-to-knee collision with Brooklyn Nets forward Thomas Robinson on Nov. 20.

Though Smart was expected to return Sunday, don’t expect Celtics coach Brad Stevens to lean too heavily on the guard just yet. Stevens still has confidence in the rest of his roster.

Expect Smart to come off the bench against the New York Knicks, who are in the midst of a three-game losing streak.
