Marcus Smart, a former Oklahoma State guard and current Boston Celtics player, announced Sunday on Twitter that the Massachusetts Department of Health cleared him of COVID-19 on Friday.
Smart and the Celtics were in Milwaukee on March 11, preparing to play the Bucks the next night — without fans — when the NBA suspended its season after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for coronavirus before that night’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Celtics, who played Utah the week before, returned to Boston the next day and self-isolated. Smart tested positive for the virus March 14 despite not having symptoms.

Thanks for everyone’s thoughts and prayers and I’m doing the same for everyone that’s been effected by this. Stay safe and stay together- apart!
Smart, 26, is averaging 13.5 points, 3.8 rebounds and 4.8 assists in his sixth season since being drafted sixth overall in the 2014 NBA draft after two seasons at OSU.
