It was reported Monday that forward Daniel Theis will have to undergo season-ending knee surgery, and the news on Marcus Smart's injured right thumb doesn't sound any better.

Fans around Boston got some troubling news on Monday when the team announced that Marcus Smart would be out indefinitely with a hand injury.

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.

Irving has been healthy for most of the season but the knee injury is cropping up at a bad time.

If Smart is sidelined for an extended period of time (potentially into the playoffs), it would be a big hit to the Celtics. Despite making a season-high-tying six of his 12 3-point attempts on Sunday, Smart is shooting just 30.1 percent from long distance this season and 36.7 percent overall.

The 6-foot-9 Theis' absence will likely lead to more minutes for Aron Baynes and Greg Monroe.

The 21-year-old, who played his collegiate basketball at Vanderbilt, was originally selected by the Memphis Grizzlies in the first round (17th pick overall) of the 2016 NBA Draft.
