Rajon Rondo confirmed that he will play tonight, after participating in the team’s shootaround this morning. “I’m playing,” the point guard told the Boston Globe.
But it doesn’t seem like he’s anywhere close to 100%.
“[My energy's] going to be different from tonight,” Rondo said, still sounding slightly ill after shootaround this morning. “I still can’t hardly breath much. But it’ll be alright. I haven’t vomited lately.”
He hasn’t vomited lately. Always a good first step. Pump some IV’s in him and get him ready for tonight, eh? Thirty years from now, I’d love to still be hearing about “The Rondo Flu Game.”
