    Brad Stevens said that he doesn't see any way that Marcus Smart (oblique) can return to the floor before he reaches his initial 4-6 week timetable.

    This pours cold water on any dwindling optimism there may have been that the always gritty Smart could return early. Don't plan on him making an appearance, if at all, until a potential Game 6 or 7.
