During a critical game 4 in Boston tonight, the Boston Celtics welcomed back a player who had an injury that nearly ended his season. 

Guard Marcus Smart had suffered a left oblique tear near his abdomen last month in a regular season game against the Orlando Magic.

Smart was listed as ‘out indefinitely’ and has missed the First Round of the NBA Playoffs against the Indiana Pacers. 

However, Smart was cleared to play by the team for Game 4 against the Milwaukee Bucks. He has also been practicing with the team in both contact and non-contact portions.

With the Celtics leading 15-12 in the first quarter, Smart checked into the game and was given a standing ovation from the Celtics fanbase, recognizing his return after being out from his oblique injury.

The former Oklahoma State star would go on to record three points, two assists, and one rebound during his 14 minutes of play in the 113-101 loss to Milwaukee.
