The Boston Celtics are going to be without guard Marcus Smart the next two weeks after he suffered a laceration to his right hand, which apparently occurred during a fit of rage.
Marcus Smart will miss two weeks after suffering lacerations on his right hand in a "non-basketball incident" on Wednesday in LA, per the Celtics.

Smart himself took to Twitter Friday to express his “sincerest apologies” and admitted he “swiped at and hit a picture frame on the wall.”
I want to take this time to express my sincerest apologies to my teammates, coaches, and most of all the amazing Boston Celtics fans. I'm embarrassed and disappointed in my actions. I swiped at and hit a picture frame on the wall. I feel like I let all y'all down

Smart is a key player for Boston. He averages just over 30 minutes, 10.1 points, 3.6 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.5 blocks per game. Needless to say, the Celtics will be hard pressed to replace that production while he’s out.
