Still, it’s not exactly clear just when the Boston Celtics guard will return to the floor.
Head coach Brad Stevens provided an update on Smart before Boston’s game against the Atlanta Hawks at TD Garden.
“I know he?s working hard to try to get back,” Stevens told reporters Wednesday. “But looking better on a one-on-(zero) shooting drill doesn?t always translate to being cleared to play five-on-five when you?re talking about that injury.”
But while he’s missed, it’s better to get him back 100% healthy rather than rushing back and risk further injury.
