Boston will have to find a way to keep the ship steady and maintain their second spot in the East, considering the see-saw battle taking place in spots 3-to-8.

Smart hit the floor often during the Celtics' Sunday night loss to IN, but one first half battle for the ball IN particular had a foreboding effect IN the form of a jammed thumb.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports Smart and the Celtics are still deciding if Smart can play through the injury or not.

If Smart is sidelined for an extended period of time (potentially into the playoffs), it would be a big hit to the Celtics.

Theis and Smart were both hurt in Sunday's game, with Smart's injury occurring when he dove to the floor.

Irving will likely have to deal with the lingering soreness for the rest of the season, making Smart's absence that much more painful, with the only healthy bodies of Terry Rozier and Shane Larkin available to play the point guard position. "It's like a sprain right now". Smart scored 20 points with eight assists, seven rebounds and four steals against the Pacers on Sunday (Monday, PHL time).

Theis had an MRI exam on his left knee on Monday morning, determining the need for surgery.

Those numbers ballooned to 7.8 points and 5.3 rebounds since the All-Star break.

The Celtics are also dealing with an injury to second-year forward Jaylen Brown (concussion).
