Marcus Smart ruled out vs. Cavaliers, no minute restriction for Gordon Hayward

The early return of Gordon Hayward is a welcome sight for the Boston Celtics, but the C’s still won’t be at full strength when they take on the Cleveland Cavaliers Monday night.

The C’s will be without the services of guard Marcus Smart against the Cavs due to a left eye infection. Smart, who played in the team’s first 19 games, has now missed two of the last three contests. Smart sat out last Wednesday’s matchup with the Miami Heat with an oblique contusion.
