Smart suffered the injury when diving for a loose ball at the 9:24 mark of the third quarter in the Celtics' 99-97 loss to the Indiana Pacers Sunday.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports Smart and the Celtics are still deciding if Smart can play through the injury or not.

But now he's one of the many players on the mend, joining Kyrie Irving (knee), Jaylen Brown (concussion), Al Horford (illness), and Shane Larking (knee) on Boston's injured list.

The Celtics are 4.3 points per 100 possessions better this season with Smart on the court, although surprisingly most of the bump is on the offensive end.

In the final hour: Don't look now, but the injuries are mounting for the Celtics this week.
