Phew! Last night was quite the stressful one; I couldn’t get to sleep at all. I was streaming intently and in addition to my planned moves, guys like Jeff Teague, Marvin Williams, Moe Harkless, Richaun…

Marcus Smart was ejected on Wednesday's game vs. the Sixers and was also assessed a flagrant 2 foul after an altercation with Joel Embiid.
Smart leaves the game in the third quarter after tallying three points, one rebound, one 3-pointer and four assists in 19 minutes. It would a shame if he's suspended because Smart has been pretty solid as of late. If he's forced to sit out a game, expect Terry Rozier to slide into the starting lineup.

Marcus Smart was a menace in Saturday's win over the Hawks, picking up 16 points (5-of-9 shooting), nine assists, five steals, a block and two 3-pointers.
Smart gave Trae Young fits in this one and was doing all the usual Marcus Smart stuff, from grabbing clutch steals to flopping around like a fish out of water. He's been a standard-league asset for quite some time now, so make sure he's rostered in all of your leagues. He can provide a big lift in steals with steady contributions in assists, 3-pointers and occasionally rebounds. It helps that his shot has improved substantially of late (.583 in March, .421 on the season, .370 for his career).

Terry Rozier and Daniel Theis are both questionable to play on Saturday as they deal with an illness.
If Rozier is unable to play, Marcus Smart gets all the run he can handle while Aron Baynes is a likely beneficiary if Theis is out.

Marcus Smart (illness) will play on Thursday against the Kings.
Smart was upgraded to probable earlier in the day and he never really seemed like he'd miss this game. Feel free to deploy him as usual.

Marcus Smart (illness) is now probable for Thursday's game with the Kings.
Smart was questionable after missing practice yesterday but it's looking like he'll play. That's good news for the Celtics with Terry Rozier out sick tonight, and Smart is tentatively safe to plug into lineups.

Marcus Smart (illness) did not practice on Wednesday and is questionable for Thursday's game.
Smart's about as tough as they come and we're expecting him to suit up tomorrow to try and slow down De'Aaron Fox and Buddy Hield. He's worth using in all leagues for his steals and threes, though you should beware that his shooting could go in the tank at any time. Check back for another update tomorrow.

Marcus Smart made 4-of-6 shots from downtown in Saturday's 120-107 win over the Lakers as he posted 16 points on 6-of-8 shooting with two rebounds, five assists and two steals.
This was a solid game from Smart who has been relatively hot with averages of 13.6 points, 2.6 triples and 2.4 steals per game over his last five. Just don't expect shooting efficiency like this every night as he's making just 41.1 percent of his shots from the field on the season.

Marcus Smart played well in a win over the Kings on Wednesday, with nine points, five assists and five steals in 31 minutes of action.
Smart has shot the ball well in the second half of the season and his top-100 value is the highest of his career. He is a great source of assists, threes, and steals. Although the numbers do not always show up on the stat sheet, the Celtics need Smart to win basketball games as he is a crucial element of their team.

Marcus Smart had his third straight solid outing on Sunday, recording 18 points, six assists, a steal, three triples and four boards on 4-of-8 shooting.
Smart has developed into a top-100 asset now that he’s starting in Boston and he’s beginning to hit more shots (over 50 percent) since the All-Star break. Expect him to cool off a bit in the coming weeks but feel secure in his value as long as he’s starting.

Marcus Smart hit 6-of-7 from the field including 4-of-4 from deep to finish Friday’s win over the Wizards with 16 points, two rebounds, two steals and a turnover.
Smart has been in a slump from the field and the line and has fallen outside the top-125 in 9-cat over the last month. He’s still a top-100 play over the last two months so hopefully this game helps him get his shooting back on track. Jaylen Brown added 13 points and a trey in the win.

Marcus Smart played well in Wednesday's loss to the Blazers with 13 points, six rebounds and five assists on 5-of-8 shooting in 36 minutes of action.
He made one 3-pointer and added two steals to the box score. Smart's value has been dropping as of late, but he is still top-100 value on the season and is a must-own guy as long as he is starting. Al Horford did not have his best game as he shot 6-of-16 for 13 points, five rebounds, five assists and two blocks. These two guys helped the Celtics play solid defense, but the shots were not falling for them and the losing streak was extended to four games.

Marcus Smart moved over to the point guard spot in Wednesday's win over the Pistons and tallied 16 points, three rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers.
Smart shot 6-for-11, and as long as he's hitting his looks at a respectable clip then it's easy for him to hold solid top-100 value. This was a nice bounceback game after a 3-of-14 showing on Tuesday. Brad Wanamaker logged 14 minutes and scored five points with Boston's top two point guards out of commission.
