BOSTON (AP) — Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart will miss about two weeks after cutting his right hand hitting a picture frame.

Smart apologized to his teammates, coaches and fans on Twitter on Friday afternoon (Saturday, PHL time), saying, “I feel like I let all y’all down.”

The Celtics said Smart returned to Boston after the injury to his right hand “from a non-basketball incident” before Wednesday night’s (Thursday, PHL time) game against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Smart says he will learn from it and come back better.

Smart is averaging 10 points and a career-high 4.7 assists this season, his fourth in Boston. He missed a potential winning shot against the Lakers on Tuesday night (Wednesday, PHL time), then did not play against the Clippers on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time).
