Marcus Smart and center Tyler Zeller were both admitted to New England Baptist Hospital on Sunday as the Boston Celtics attempt to combat a batch of illnesses that have spread throughout the organization.

“Marcus, he has the bug that has been going around — the [gastrointestinal] bug. And then Tyler’s had an ear infection and some sinusitis for a while,” Celtics coach Brad Stevens said Monday. “[Zeller] was really feeling under the weather [Sunday], more so than even in the past couple of weeks, and he’s been battling for a while now. Hopefully those guys get discharged soon and are able to join us ASAP.”
