Marcus Smart lacerated his hand hitting picture frame, out two weeks

Marcus Smart

We are three months into the NBA season and may now finally have a nominee for the strangest injury of the year.

The Boston Celtics announced on Friday that guard Marcus Smart suffered right hand lacerations from “a non-basketball incident” before Wednesday’s win over the Clippers in Los Angeles. The team adds that he is expected to miss approximately two weeks but has since returned to Boston.

Smart filled in some of the details himself on Twitter, offering an apology and saying that he hurt his hand punching a picture frame on the wall.

Smart, 23, is averaging 10.1 points and 4.7 assists per game this season. He sat out the Clippers game with the injury, and it may be worth noting that he committed a bad play to lose the game the night before against the LA Lakers.

The laceration was apparently serious enough to send Smart to the hospital, and now it looks like he will be sidelined until just before the All-Star break.
