Rajon Rondo is still officially a game-time decision tonight. But the Celtics guard participated in shootaround and Carlos Arroyo said he should play tonight. (CSNNE)
“He’s ready to go,” said Arroyo, who admitted that Rondo is still bothered by his elbow. “He’s a warrior. He demonstrated that last game. We were all surprised the fact that he came back after that injury. I know he’s ready. He wants to play. He wants to win.”
The lesson, as always: It’s going to take more than the grossest elbow injury since Andrew Bogut to keep Rondo out of the NBA playoffs.
