Atlantic Notes: Smart, Carroll, Vaulet, Okafor

Celtics coach Brad Stevens admits that a return in two weeks for Marcus Smart from his lower left leg injury is the most optimistic timetable, and a doctor unaffiliated with the Celtics or Smart who spoke to Chris Forsberg of believes a more likely period of recovery is four to six weeks. The C’s have a deep stable of point guards, but none of them can defend the way Smart can, as Forsberg examines. The Celtics are one of a surprising 11 Eastern Conference teams with winning records thus far, so it would appear they face a more daunting path back to the playoffs than expected.

    I think Noel gets traded before okafor. Okafor and embiid are a good fit. But embiid has to be healthy to trade one

      Wouldn’t put it past the Sixers to trade one of them even before Embiid comes back. The Carter-Williams trade is a prime example of that sort of move.

      I don’t think those 2 fit either. Personally, I think at some point, they’ll have to trade 2 of them. All 3 are 5s to me. I like Embiid most, Noel 2nd, and Okafor has looked better in certain aspects than I thought, but he is behind those guys for me. If you want to say Embiid could play the 4 b/c of his ability on the perimeter, I still pair him with Noel. I personally don’t feel that way though. He is a 5….All of that being said, it remains to be seen how we should evaluate Embiid b/c he obviously hasn’t stepped on the floor in the NBA
