The Boston Celtics are going to face the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night without Marcus Smart. The Celtics’ dynamic guard suffered a calf injury in the fourth quarter against the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday night.

Boston’s head coach Brad Stevens offered an update on Smart’s condition Monday, saying the veteran guard did not travel with the team in San Francisco.

The Oklahoma State product is averaging 13.1 points on 39.4% shooting from the field with 6.1 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.8 steals per game for Boston.

With Smart out, the Celtics will try to face Golden State’s Stephen Curry without their best perimeter defender. Kemba Walker, Jeff Teague and Aaron Neismith are expected to receive extended playing time with Smart out.
