Report: Celtics' Marcus Smart fully recovered from finger injury

BY foxsports • August 20, 2015

Boston Celtics starting point guard Marcus Smart is officially back on the court, fully recovered from two gruesome dislocated fingers suffered at Las Vegas Summer League. 

Here's more on Smart's health, courtesy of the Boston Globe's Adam Himmelsbach:

"If Smart had been healthy, it is also likely he would have been tapped to play in last week’s Team USA scrimmage in Las Vegas. But Smart’s return to the court comes more than a month before the start of Celtics training camp, allowing him plenty of time to regain his form. The Celtics are scheduled to open practice in late September before leaving for Europe, where they will play exhibition games in Madrid and Milan."

The tidbit about Smart possibly participating in USA basketball's scrimmage had he been healthy is interesting. Last summer, he scrimmaged against Team USA as a member of their select team, where he caught head coach Mike Krzyzewski's eye.

Smart's health is more important to the Celtics, though. They're certainly thrilled to have him back in time for next month's training camp.
