Boston Celtics shield Marcus Smart is very likely to keep on rehabilitating his left calf breed during the March 5-10 All-Star break with hopes of returning to the lineup to the beginning of the year’s second half, sources told ESPN.
Smart, functioning to completely recover from the accident, which occurred on Jan. 30, resumed traveling together with the Celtics on Sunday at New Orleans and engaged in mild on-court actions, trainer Brad Stevens stated before his team’s match against the Pelicans.
The Celtics are 5-6 with no Smart at the lineup because his injury, and he’d presumably miss seven games throughout the end of the first half of this year on March 4.
Smart has been having his best NBA season, including career highs in points (13.1), assists (6.1) and steals (1.8). He is leading the Celtics in defensive classes which have deflections and loose ball recoveries.
