The Celtics faced the Pacers in Indiana on Wednesday with a new look to their starting lineup.

Guard Marcus Smart missed Wednesday’s game due to a sprained left big toe, according to team officials. Isaiah Thomas got the nod in place of Smart. It marked Thomas’ first regular-season start as a Celtic.

Celtics officials announced Smart’s injury Wednesday afternoon from Indiana.

The Boston Herald’s Steve Bulpett tweeted out the following on Smart’s status:

Team officials also announced that Jared Sullinger and Amir Johnson would start in place of David Lee and Tyler Zeller.

Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas told reporters in Salt Lake City Thursday night that he doesn’€™t feel that Danny Ainge is done making moves this offseason.

Thomas, who was acquired at last season’€™s trade deadline, played 21 games for the C’€™s last regular season and all four games of the team’€™s sweep at the hands of the Cavaliers.

Since then, the C’€™s have agreed to terms with Amir Johnson, Jonas Jerebko and Jae Crowder while trading Gerald Wallace for David Lee.

“For the most part, I like the moves we have made, and I know Danny is probably trying to make more to get better or more players to fit whatever he’s trying to do,” Thomas said, according to MassLive. ‘€œI’€™m down for what he’s doing and I like the new guys.”

Poll: How do you grade Celtics’ draft? 06.26.15 at 12:20 pm ET
By   |  Comments Off on Poll: How do you grade Celtics’ draft?

The Celtics surprised almost everyone by grabbing Louisville point guard Terry Rozier with their first pick in Thursday’s draft, and followed that by taking George State shooting guard R.J. Hunter, LSU power forward Jordan Mickey and William & Mary point guard Marcus Thornton.

Did Danny Ainge do the right thing by taking the players he considered the most talented available, or was it a mistake to load up with undersized guards on a team that already has a plethora of undersized guards?

What grade do you give Danny Ainge on the Celtics' 2015 draft?

  • C (36%, 131 Votes)
  • D (29%, 104 Votes)

Erman then spent two seasons with the Warriors turning around their defense before returning to the Celtics last season. He reportedly will focus on the defense with the Pelicans.
