Smart arrived at the arena in a walking boot. He is more than doubtful for Friday's game. If he doesn't play, Isaiah Thomas could start again, and the Celtics' other backcourt players will keep their bump in minutes, like Bradley.

Anyone thinks yahoo will add SG eligibility to Smart eventually?
100% (3) agree 
I'm with you end3r, it's a week of action, adding Rozier will be useful for a week. I'm holding him
100% (1) agree 
I think that's pretty premature. Reports indicate he's only out for 2 weeks meaning at most he misses only the opening week, 3 games. And with a 14 team league and with a pretty shallow waiver wire, I'm almost willing to guarantee someone will swoop him up.
Drafted Smart in the 9th round (114) in a 14-team H2H league. Given ankle sprain is he a drop candidate now for Rozier or should i ride him out.
Seriously though, if Smart would just lay off the 3 pt attempts...that was never his game in college. He's shown that he can't shoot it at a respectable %.
100% (1) agree 
Coach Brad Stevens has referred to Smart as his "6th starter". So I think Marcus will see a good chunk of minutes. He can play and defend all 3 perimeter positions which opens up his opportunities for minutes.
Rozier will get a lot of Turner's minutes, but Smart played 27 last season and only needs to get 3 of Turner's to get to 30 minutes. Rozier isn't playing 30 minutes a night
They've been talking up Terry Rozier quite a bit recently. Is he much of a threat?
Yes that, and maybe his shot doesn't quite come around, but I think the risk is minimal. I have a hard time thinking he won't get 30 minutes.
what's the risk factor for Smart? playing time?
