The Boston Celtics not only lost to the Brooklyn Nets, they also lost one of their best defensive players in Marcus Smart who is expected to be out for over two weeks with a subluxation of the proximal tibfib joint. Explanation coming:
“The proximal tibfib joint is where the top of the fibula, the little bone on the outside of the leg, is attached to the tibia, the large shin bone,” explained Dr. Mark Adickes, co-medical director of the Ironman Sports Medicine Institute at Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston.
“If you have a subluxation, the contact tore ligaments as the fibulae head actually moved out of place and then returned to an anatomical position. I liken this injury to an MCL in that it is a soft-tissue injury that has great blood supply and generally heals on its own, provided the fibula is in the correct position.”

The Celtics are leading the NBA in forcing turnovers with 20+ a game and look to continue that against the Bucks with their full cast of characters after Marcus Smart sat out the last two games and Jae Crowder suffered a knee bruise against the Nets.
