Shortly after this, Shams Charania of The Vertical reported the tendon was torn, and that Smart will be seeking a second opinion. Risking further injury for short-term wins is playing with fire.

Joining him on the bench will be shooting guard Jaylen Brown (concussion), forward Gordon Hayward, hybrid guard Marcus Smart, and forward Daniel Theis - the last three in risk of missing the remainder of the season. According to a league source, the C's have no idea about Smart's probability of return. Smart scored 20 points with eight assists, seven rebounds and four steals against the Pacers on Sunday (Monday, PHL time).

Smart's right hand was later put in a cast, and he expressed confidence that "it will be all right". The lack of an extension wasn't unusual for the Celtics, who rarely extend players off rookie contracts.

Fearing Trade War, EU Warns of Protectionism 'Dead End'
Steel and heavy industry have always been a political touchstone for Chinese leaders, which led to economic disaster in the 1950s. This ignores how tariffs increase costs of production for industries reliant on imported materials to produce their products.

Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving will not play against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night.

"Sore, but it will be all right", Smart told reporters after the game. Wojnarowski reports that the Celtics believe it is nothing more than knee tendonitis and that Irving is day-to-day and won't need to miss much time. All have been listed as inactive.
