Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart has a tendon injury in his right thumb, and the team is still determining whether he’ll need to miss extended time due to the injury, league sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Youth Jason Demers Jersey Smart injured his thumb diving to the floor during Sunday’s loss to the Indiana Pacers. He had the thumb taped and returned to finish the game.
Celtics coach Brad Stevens didn’t have an update on Irving at Monday’s practice, but when asked about bringing him back, he noted the team would likely tread slowly.
Added Stevens: We’ve [mapped out rest] pretty consistently [when Irving has been sore]. We’ve said if we need to rest, or the knee becomes an issue, then automatically everything stops, and we go from there. What we’re really focused on now is making sure that knee feels as good as possible heading into April. I don’t know what that means from the Ronnie Stanley Youth jersey standpoint of playing this week, next week, any of that stuff.
Gonzalez had a $20 million salary last year in the final season of an $80 million, seven-year contract and became a free agent after nine seasons with the Rockies. The three-time Gold Glove outfielder struggled for most of last season as the Rockies returned to the postseason for the first time since 2009. He showed signs of breaking out of his funk down the stretch, though, hitting six of his 14 homers in September.
With the Cavaliers mired in a two-game losing streak, dropping their record to just 6-6 since February’s trade deadline, Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue decided to shake up his team again by bringing JR Smith off the bench against the Suns on Tuesday and starting Kyle Korver in his place.
Mens Brian Gionta Jersey Korver will be replaced in the starting lineup by Rodney Hood whenever Hood’s sore lower back feels well enough to play. Hood went through shootaround Tuesday but was ruled out of the game.
