Celtics' Kyrie Irving out vs. Wizards with knee soreness

But now he's one of the many players on the mend, joining Kyrie Irving (knee), Jaylen Brown (concussion), Al Horford (illness), and Shane Larking (knee) on Boston's injured list.

Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart is out indefinitely after reportedly suffering a torn tendon in his right thumb, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports.

The Celtics also lost backup center Daniel Theis to season-ending surgery to fix a torn meniscus.

Now this: Marcus Smart has a torn ligament in his thumb.

Smart said after the game it was a sprain and the Celtics maintained that diagnosis as of practice Monday while Smart is in the process of his thumb being further examined.

Smart suffered the injury when diving for a loose ball at the 9:24 mark of the third quarter in the Celtics' 99-97 loss to the Indiana Pacers Sunday.

Theis and Smart were both hurt in Sunday's game, with Smart's injury occurring when he dove to the floor. Those are questions only Smart and the Celtics' doctors. Smart missed time earlier in the season after lacerating that same hand when he hit a picture frame on the wall at the team hotel during an angry outburst.
