The Celtics are suspending goalkeeper Marcus Smart for Friday’s preseason final against the Miami Heat, according to a report.
The punishment is for breaking a team rule. The case has been resolved and Smart is with the team in Florida as they wrap up their two-game road trip, after facing Orlando on Wednesday night. He didn’t play against the Magic.
Smart, 27, is entering his eighth season with the Celtics, having been selected sixth overall in the 2014 NBA Draft. He signed a four-year extension of $ 77 million in August.
ESPN reports that Smart missed the team’s flight to Orlando ahead of their penultimate preseason game.
