Via Boston Globe:
Rajon Rondo participated in the Celtics’ shootaround this morning and said he expects to play after an MRI on his right wrist was negative, revealing just a sprain. Rondo wore a splint on the wrist and said he’s been spending the past several hours in treatment.
“That’s the plan,” Rondo said when asked if he was going to play. “It’s OK. It gets better every day. Hopefully in a couple of hours it will be better than this.”
Damn it. I was really looking forward to 40 minutes of the Avery Bradley-Steve Nash matchup. (Wink, wink.)
Keyon Dooling remains out and “hinted” that Bradley is still expected to start. High fives all around.
