Marcus Smart listed as questionable for Sunday vs. Nets originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
Smart was listed as questionable on the C's Saturday injury report due to a left hip contusion. The veteran guard took a hard fall on his hip during Friday night's loss to the Miami Heat but played through it.
Losing Smart for any amount of time would be a tough blow for Boston. The reigning Defensive Player of the Year has been outstanding through his first 21 games of the campaign, averaging 11.8 points and a career-high 7.7 assists while shooting a personal-best 44.9 percent from the floor.
If Smart is out on Sunday, Malcolm Brogdon could take his spot in the starting lineup.
The Celtics will look to bounce back against a Nets team that has won four straight games. Tip-off for Sunday's matchup is set for 6 p.m. ET at Barclays Center.
