Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart wants to see how his injured right thumb responds over the next few days and receive a second opinion before deciding on a plan for moving forward, according to the Boston Globe's Adam Himmelsbach.

But in a bit of good news, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the team believes the left knee soreness hampering star Kyrie Irving is not serious.

Smart's chances of returning this season don't seem high though, as The Boston Herald's Mark Murphy reported Tuesday, citing league sources, that the Celtics "just don't know" if the guard will be able to return.

Irving has been healthy for most of the season but the knee injury is cropping up at a bad time.

They said Aiello and Gerardi paid cash bribes through shell companies to get favorable treatment for development of a parking lot. One guilty verdict was linked to Percoco's schoolteacher wife, Lisa, who was hired by Kelly to a $90,000-per-year low-show job.

Danny Ainge indicated that the Boston Celtics aren't going to rush Kyrie Irving back from injury in response to a growing list of sidelined players.

"Sore, but it will be all right", Smart told reporters after the game.

The Celtics have succeeded this season despite some notable injuries. Al Horford is also considered questionable.

Smart scored 20 points with eight assists and seven rebounds Sunday in a loss to the Pacers.
