Celtics guard Marcus Smart’s return keeps inching closer and closer.

According to Boston’s latest injury report, issued Monday evening, Smart is “questionable” for Tuesday night’s Game 5 against Milwaukee.

Smart has been sidelined since mid-March after undergoing surgery to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right thumb. He is scheduled to visit New York City for a doctor’s appointment Tuesday.
