After injuring his right ankle in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Miami Heat, Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart is officially ruled questionable for Game 4 Monday night. Smart landed awkwardly on the ankle early in the third quarter of the contest and then returned to Boston’s dressing room. However, Smart returned to the court moments later and played the rest of the game. He finished with 16 points and seven assists in 36 minutes of action.

You can see the piece where Smart injured his ankle below:

Adrenaline likely helped Smart get back into action and get through the pain in Game 3, but now the Celtics will have to see how his ankle reacts going into Game 4.[He] has a swelling in the ankle. [It was] a pretty bad sprain”, Celtics coach said Ime Udoka by Smart. “He finished the game but he will feel it. He’ll work on it, get treatment and see how he feels tomorrow.”

Considering he was able to play in Game 3 after the injury it seems likely that Smart can hold out again in Game 4 but we’ll have to wait and see. In addition to Smart, the Celtics also listed center Robert Williams III as questionable for the competition. Williams missed Game 3 with knee pain. Finally, all-star forward Jayson Tatum (right cervical nerve injury) is listed as likely for Game 4.
