Nate Robinson, who received six stitches last night after getting accidentally Zinedine Zidane’d by Mike Dunleavy, should play tonight against the Detroit Pistons. Methinks Robinson could have returned to last night’s game, but Marquis Daniels was in video game god mode. (Boston Herald)
Robinson’s eye was swollen afterward from the numbing agent. He plans to play tonight against the Detroit Pistons, however.
“I don’t remember what happened,” Robinson, who finished with eight points and four assists, said. “I just remember the blood and running to the back.
“I’m tough. It ain’t like I never had stitches before. It’s nothing. I guess I get a little bit of sympathy from the ladies, so I’m good. I’m good.”
Robinson also noted that he felt sick during the game, and “almost pulled a Willie Beamen.” After shooting 2-15 against the Orlando Magic, I would feel sick too.
In other injury news, Rajon Rondo participated in certain live portions of the Celtics’ practice Monday. Still, Doc Rivers “pretty much ruled out a return tonight against the Pistons,” according to the Boston Herald. Most likely, his return will come Friday against CP3 and the New Orleans Hornets.
