That calf issue that has kept Marcus out of action with Team USA & Team Shamrock is in the past. He is ready to go.
Marcus Smart’s calf issue seems to be a thing of the past. He had indicated that all of the tests by Celtics staff were exceptional, and he was ready to get out there. Team USA headed for Australia yesterday (Saturday), and they will face Australia in exhibition on August 22. Barring another mishap, Marcus should be on the floor for practice tomorrow and for the game on Thursday.
As they prepare to leave the country today, Team USA gets one roster boost to counter the unexpected departure of De’Aaron Fox: Marcus Smart, I’m told, has been cleared to make a full return to the court from the calf injury that has sidelined him for the past week-plus
