Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart, who tested positive for COVID-19 two weeks ago, has been cleared by the Massachusetts Department of Health, he announced Sunday on social media.
Smart and the Celtics were in Milwaukee on March 11, preparing to play the Bucks the next night, in front of no fans, when the NBA suspended its season after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for the coronavirus before that night’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Boston, having played Utah the week before, went home from Milwaukee the next day, and players self-quarantined before Smart tested positive for the virus.
In a media conference call last week, Boston coach Brad Stevens was enthused about Smart’s progress, saying he was doing “great.”
