Celtics Smart to miss 3 weeks

BOSTON (AP) — Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart is expected to be sidelined two to three weeks because of a Grade 1 tear of his left calf muscle. Smart missed the final 10 1/2 minutes of Boston’s 96-95 loss to the Lakers Saturday night after he was helped off the court following a collision with Montrezl (MAHN’-trehz) Harrell underneath the basket. Smart’s injury will mean yet another adjustment to a Celtics lineup that was playing with its projected starters Smart, Kemba Walker, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Daniel Theis (tys) for just the second time this season.

MIAMI (AP) — Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro (HEE’-roh) has revealed that someone who lives with him tested positive for COVID-19. Herro is listed as questionable on the team’s injury report for tonight’s game against the Charlotte Hornets. Herro was not with the team for practice yesterday.
