Celtics guard Marcus Smart admitted he cut his hand swiping at a picture frame in his hotel room, an injury expected to keep him out two weeks.

Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald:

According to league sources briefed on the situation, Smart’s story checks out. There was a broken picture frame in the bathroom in his Beverly Hills hotel room, and glass was indeed found in his hand, requiring stitches. The Celtic guard’s anger was apparently raised over pictures posted by a female acquaintance on social media — pictures that have since been deleted.

Smart needs a new way to vent.
