Celtics G Smart, C Williams leave injured against Raptors

TORONTO (AP) — Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart and center Robert Williams both missed the second half against Toronto because of injuries. Smart injured his right ankle in the final minute of the first half and had to be helped to the locker room. Williams stayed in the game after teammate Jaylen Brown collided with his left knee in the opening quarter, but Williams did not return for the second half because of a hyperextended knee. Boston said neither player would return for the second half. Williams had left-knee surgery last March, but returned in the playoffs.
