Rondo may miss more time

Just when you think the Celtics may get rolling. It looks like Rondo may sit, and it's a bit like last season. The Celtics went on a mini run when Rondo went out, and Bradley came in. Will see what happens tomorrow night with Rondo, and will see how Bradley will react tomorrow after he puts on the Celtics uniform for the first time this season, and in the New Year.

While Rondo downplayed the severity of the injury while meeting with reporters before practice on Tuesday, he admitted it limited his game.

"When you get beat down the court by a big, you know, it's frustrating," said Rondo. "But I'm OK; I'll be fine. It's nothing like I need surgery or anything. It's not that serious. It's just a bruise."

Asked if he'd play Wednesday, Rondo said simply, "I hope so."

Rivers said the team has to decide whether (1) playing Rondo on Wednesday would aggravate the injury and (2) if he would help or hurt the team given the limitations from the ailment. Even Rondo isn't sure what the right answers are.

"I've never had this type of injury. I got kneed on my bone and it's just been nagging," he said. "Nothing too serious, but if affects me a little bit. Obviously, my style of play, which is speed, I'm not able to plant as quick as I would like to right now, but I've been getting treatment every day."


I hope to see Rondo, but mainly he needs to get his body right.
