Grizzlies’ Marcus Smart to miss at least 3 weeks due to foot sprain

November 17th, 2023

Memphis Grizzlies guard Marcus Smart is out with a left foot sprain that will sideline him for three to five weeks, the team announced on Friday.

The 29-year-old sustained the injury in Tuesday’s 134-107 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers. He left the game with three points, one rebound, one assist, one steal and one block in eight minutes.

This is another blow for the Grizzlies, who are 2-9 on the season without Ja Morant. The Celtics sent Smart to Memphis in the three-way trade surrounding Kristaps Porzingis. The 7-foot-3 power forward/center has been vital in Boston’s 9-2 start.

“It’s been hard, especially when you’re not used to losing and with this team,” Smart told Sportskeeda’s Mark Medina. “Last year, they were the No. 2 seed and were used to winning. There weren’t many games that they lost. So it’s about understanding that it’s okay that you’re losing and that you can still have fun and be happy. Things are going to be okay. For this team, it’s huge to be able to have fun and play even when things aren’t going well. When we have the right mindset, things starts to go right.”

In 11 games, Smart proved to be a solid addition for his new team. He holds averages of 12.5 points, 2.5 rebounds and five assists on 42.9 percent shooting from the field, 29.5 percent from three.
