    Marcus Smart plans to donate his blood plasma to the National COVID-19 Convalescent Plasma Project for research on how the virus affects the blood of those infected or have been infected already, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

    This marks an interesting end (fingers-crossed) to Smart's coronavirus infection and subsequent quarantine. Only five NBA players have received confirmed positive tests for COVID-19 but the NBA obviously isn't taking any chances during this global pandemic. With speed being medical professionals' biggest pressure with regards to a vaccine, Smart really stepped up to the plate. Hopefully other public figures who have recovered from the virus will follow his lead in donating necessary items for research. This also doesn't hurt Smart's public image, which has been known to fluctuate dramatically during his college and professional career.

    Marcus Smart announced that he has been cleared of COVID-19 since Friday.

    It is good to see that Smart made a full recovery from the virus. Before this crisis hit the scene Smart was having a strong season with consistent mid-round value for the Celtics. With his secure role as a defensive anchor and his improved shooting from deep, he will continue to be a strong option whenever play resumes.

    Marcus Smart announced that he tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday.

    Smart followed the Celtics statement almost immediately, announcing that he's the Celtics player who tested positive. He has been self-quarantined since the postive test.

    Marcus Smart dropped 19 points with 10 boards in 38 minutes of action in a loss to the Thunder on Sunday.

    Smart shot 7-of-17 from the field and added two triples and four assists to the box score. Smart has been rolling as of late and has produced top-25 value over the last two weeks. Although that value might be unattainable, he should be a lock for top-50 value due to his defensive and sharpshooting abilities.

    Marcus Smart kept his hot streak going on Friday and went off for 29 points (9-of-23 shooting), six threes, three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in a team-high 37 minutes.

    Smart has been on a heater, clocking in with top-30 value over the last week. With Gordon Hayward and Jaylen Brown sidelined, there's no reason to think that he's going to slow down anytime soon.

  • Gordon Hayward
    SF, Boston Celtics

    Gordon Hayward (right knee contusion) has been ruled out ahead of Friday's matchup vs. the Jazz.

    Hayward will miss his second consecutive game on Friday but his outlook looks slightly better than his teammate, Jaylen Brown (hamstring). Hayward is considered day-to-day while Brown has been ruled out until at least next Thursday. Marcus Smart, Grant Williams and Semi Ojeleye should continue to see additional opportunity on Friday with Hayward and Brown sidelined.

    Marcus Smart struggled from beyond the arc on Wednesday bust still ended with 18 points (5-15 FG, 0-5 3PT, 8-8 FT), two rebounds, two assists and two steals.

    Smart is usually good for some 3-pointers, but couldn't find his stroke tonight. He'll be a good source of production while the Celtics are shorthanded, especially given his steady rate of steals.

  • Jaylen Brown
    SG, Boston Celtics

    Jaylen Brown (right hamstring) has been ruled out for at least one week.

    Brown was already ruled out of Wednesday's game earlier in the day but will now miss at least an additional three games. His next opportunity to play is next Thursday against the Bucks. While Brown is sidelined, Jayson Tatum will be leaned on more heavily. Marcus Smart, Grant Williams and Semi Ojeleye could also see their roles increase.

    Jaylen Brown (right hamstring) will not play during Wednesday's game.

    Brown injured himself on Tuesday against the Nets. He has averaged 20.4 points and 6.4 rebounds per contest this campaign. With the Celtics quite depleted, look for Marcus Smart to step up against the Cavs.

    Marcus Smart (illness) stuffed the stat sheet with 14 points (5-of-15 FGs), six rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, two blocks and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes in a 120-129 overtime loss to the Nets on Tuesday.

    Smart, who fouled out near the start of overtime in this one, has been on a roll for a while now, putting up top-40 value for the last month. Kemba Walker (left knee soreness) returned from a five-game absence, though he was on a minutes limit, but Jayson Tatum was out for this game, allowing Smart to remain a larger part of the offense than when the Celtics are at full strength. Smart should definitely still be held, but expect his production to dip a bit once Walker and Tatum are at full strength.

    Brad Stevens said that Marcus Smart (illness) will play against the Nets on Tuesday.

    Smart has been at a top-75 value over the past month in both 9/8 cat leagues on the back of 14.9 points, 5.3 assists, 4.2 rebounds, 2.8 treys, 2.3 steals and 0.6 blocks in 34.9 minutes per game. Kemba Walker is expected back on Tuesday, and he may cut into the added usage that Smart was recently enjoying.

    Marcus Smart (illness) is considered questionable for Tuesday's game.

    Smart missed practice on Monday. He finished Saturday's game with 26 points, five rebounds, seven assists, and four steals. In any case, Kemba Walker is expected to return against the Nets.

  • Jayson Tatum
    SF, Boston Celtics

    Jayson Tatum and Marcus Smart (illness) were absent from Monday's practice.

    No word on their status for tomorrow. Right now they should be tentatively expected to play but you'll need to check back for another update in case the Celtics decide to play it safe. If either missed tomorrow's game, you could safely upgrade the rest of the Celtics given the available minutes and usage.

    Marcus Smart scored 26 points on 9-of-22 shooting, adding five rebounds, seven assists, four steals and five 3-pointers in 45 minutes on Saturday.

    This line is as good as it gets for Smart, bringing his usual across-the-board production with more points and better efficiency than usual. Smart has been a top-40 player since the All-Star break with Kemba Walker sidelined. Smart is a top-60 player on the season and is a safe bet to finish inside the top-70 moving forward.

    Marcus Smart came up one assist shy of a double-double on Wednesday, ending with 17 points (7-17 FG, 3-8 3PT), three rebounds, nine assists, three steals and block.

    Smart contributed to all the counting stats in this contest, and is a threat to do so on any night. He looks like a lock to finish the season with mid-round value, and will look for more explosive nights should Kemba Walker miss more time.
