The NBA play must start in a week, but the time for the Boston Celtics can hardly be worse.

"data-reactid =" 17 "> In the last Sunday match in the regular season, Jayson Tatum and Marcus Smart defender left early on 116-108 with injuries.
Although there is no injury schedule yet, players are not expected to keep the rest of the season. However, both are crucial to Celtic's play-off, and he hopes that each player will continue to avoid injuries.
Tatum leaves the left hip contusion
Tatum played only six minutes and missed both of his strike before he left the Sunday match. The team quickly announced that they will not be back in the game.

"Data-reactid =" 21 "> The 21-year-old was actually dealing with the controversy of the leg before the competition, though head coach Brad Stevens he was obviously unaware of this fact, Tatum said his leg was ridiculous when he jumped, so he did not come back.
Tatum is the second leading Celtic goalkeeper with 15.9 points per game, so his absenteeism is acutely missed. Boston dropped out of both games that he had previously missed – at Los Angeles Clippers and Sacramento Kings – for at least 19 points, although they had a lot of depth on their wings with Gordon Hayward and Jaylen Brown from the bench.
Smart avoids a worse diagnosis with blush hair
Smart lasted a bit longer than Tatum because he left the match at 6:15 in the third quarter. Stevens described his injury as a "bruised" hair, not as a muscle tension, and may have avoided long-lasting injuries.
Smart is not a threat by Tatum, but is an invaluable defender who has started most seasons. Boston dropped his only game without him for seven at Brooklyn Nets.

Luckily, Smart was seen walk in the dressing room after the match, so he may not be out for long.
How does this affect the hope of Celtic in the playoffs?
Since the Celtics are in the fourth place, it is very likely that Stevens will decide to stay Tatum and Smart in the regular part of the finals on Tuesday against the Washington Wizards. Even if both get a clean health account, it's not worth taking the risk of injuries to sharply meaningless games.
