Marcus Smart, guard, Boston Celtics

Marcus Smart found himself back in the starting five because a sore right Achilles delayed Avery Bradley’s return. Smart struggled from the perimeter, shooting 7-for-26 the past three games. However, he continues to impress with his stellar defense, averaging two steals and one block per game. Smart is expected to start the next four games while Bradley recovers from his injury.
