Rajon Rondo underwent an MRI and a CT scan Sunday and tests came back negative. Hard to believe considering how gruesome the injury looked when it happened. Now, questionable does not guarantee he’ll play, but he is at least not officially ruled out. Most Celtics fans began to fear the worst once the high of the epic game three win began to wear off. Should Rajon Rondo not be able to play, expect the Celtics to utilize the combination of Delonte West and Carlos Arroyo to handle the point guard duties.
Said head coach Doc Rivers: “Right now we’re going with they’re all playing, hopefully we’ll know something by the end of our film session. Obviously (Rondo’s elbow) was far more painful today, a lot of swelling. If he can’t help our team (Rondo won’t play), and if he can play, how well can he play and will he help or hurt our team? No. 1, we’re not going to hurt the player and we’re not going to do anything to hurt the team. It may not be until game time and the game until we find that out.”
In the series versus the Miami Heat, Rondo is averaging 11.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 10 assists per game.
