ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta Hawks forward Josh Smith has a strained tendon in his left knee and is day-to-day for the playoff series against the Boston Celtics.

Smith had an MRI on Wednesday morning, and the team revealed details of the injury a few hours later. It’s not known if he’ll be able to play in Game 3, which is Friday night in Boston.

Smith was injured in Atlanta’s 87-80 loss to the Celtics, which evened the series at one win apiece. He left for good with 4:20 remaining, and the offense bogged down without his presence in the post.

The Hawks already are playing without their top two centers, Al Horford and Zaza Pachulia. Coach Larry Drew says he’s worried about Smith’s availability with the series shifting to Boston for the next two games.
