Marcus Smart (thumb) remains hopeful that he'll be able to meet his recovery timeline and return for the Eastern Conference semifinals should the Celtics advance that far.
Smart has recently increased the intensity of his workouts after shedding his cast for a smaller splint. Initially, pain medications made it difficult for Smart to complete cardio work but he's been doing some core work and hopes to start engaging in basketball activities with his left hand next week. While he's obviously been dropped in re-draft leagues, Smart just might be able to get into the picture for those of you signed up for playoff leagues.
