Marcus Smart reportedly out indefinitely with USA Basketball with calf tightness

The news on Marcus Smart's situation with USA Basketball is middle-of-the-road - not terribly bad, nor particularly good. What was originally termed a sore ankle has now progressed to calf tightness.

USA Basketball takes a cautious approach to injuries, and Marcus will be no exception. He will get rest and treatment, and hopefully he won't be out of action for too long. And I am hoping that Smart's layoff won't affect his chances to make the final 15-man roster. Stay with us for future updates on his condition and potential return to action.
