Smart will get a second opinion on the extent of the injury.

Smart's appointment with another local doctor was scheduled for tomorrow, when after a delay because of yesterday's snowstorm, his team will be fully assembled.

The Boston Celtics will not have guard Marcus Smart in the lineup for quite some time after he reportedly tore a tendon in his thumb.

The Celtics have succeeded this season despite some notable injuries. Letting the injury heal naturally would likely take a month or so, while surgery would involve a three-month timetable.

Losing Smart would be a critical blow to the C's at this juncture.

"(They're) waiting for that second opinion", the source said yesterday. According to a report from Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald, the Celtics don't know if it's a "50 percent chance or a 30 percent chance".

Smart was seen wearing a protective cast on his shooting hand after the 99-97 loss to the Indiana Pacers.

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

Overall in his two years at Vanderbilt, Baldwin posted 11.6 points, 4.8 dimes, 4.1 boards and 1.3 steals per game.

Theis had an MRI exam on his left knee on Monday morning, determining the need for surgery. All have been listed as inactive.
