Having dropped the series opener 101-89, the Boston Celtics must now prepare for Tuesday's tilt versus the Milwaukee Bucks with the possibility that Marcus Smart is unavailable.

The Defensive Player of the Year is officially listed as questionable for Game 2 due to the right thigh contusion he suffered in Game 1.

"He's a tough guy that's going to try to play through things," Celtics coach Ime Udoka said. "We'll get him some treatment today and see how he feels tomorrow, but he'll be listed as questionable."

The Celtics didn't note any issue with Smart's right shoulder, which he appeared to dislocate in the first half of Sunday's game before returning after halftime. The team described the ailment as a "stinger."

Smart finished the game with 10 points, six assists, and a pair of steals. He was a plus-3 in 33 minutes of play, leading all Celtics starters. Boston lost the 15 minutes that Smart was out of the game by 15 points.
