Rajon Rondo doubtful for Friday’s game

Celtics guard Rajon Rondo (right wrist) is “doubtful” for tomorrow’s game against Phoenix, coach Doc Rivers said after practice today.

But Rondo did not rule himself out.

“I don’t know,” Rondo said of his status. “Hopefully, I’ll get a good night’s rest and I’ll be in treatment all day. Other than that, we’ll see tomorrow.”


The Celtics received a scare last night when Rondo was smashed to the floor by Toronto’s Linas Kleiza on a drive to the basket. Rondo landed awkwardly on his right wrist and left the game. He was diagnosed with just a sore right wrist and said he could have returned, but he wasn’t needed.

Rondo did not participate in practice today, sitting on the side and advising backups Avery Bradley and E’Twaun Moore.
