After news surfaced that center Daniel Theis will likely miss the rest of the season with a torn meniscus, multiple reports surfaced that Celtics defensive centerpiece Marcus Smart sustained a torn tendon in his right thumb.

That is, if he can ever get out of a snowy Boston.

Shortly after this, Shams Charania of The Vertical reported the tendon was torn, and that Smart will be seeking a second opinion.

Smart will head to the Big Apple to have another examination done on his right thumb, according to NBA.com's David Aldridge.

Smart sprained his right thumb during Sunday night's loss to the Indiana Pacers. Surgery would probably mean a lengthy absence for Smart, who is a key part to Boston's success as their first guard off the bench.

Boston Celtics star Kyrie Irving will not play in Wednesday's game against the Washington Wizards because of a knee injury. On top of it all, a hand injury will keep Marcus Smart out indefinitely once again ... Smart is now going over his treatment options with the Celtics medical staff, but with no clear timetable to return, he should be sent to the waiver wire in most cases.
