Rondo made the trip to Washington D.C for Sunday’s afternoon tilt against the Wizards. While there has not been a confirmation that Rondo will suit up, this is an encouraging sign that the Celtic spark plug will be able to give it a go.
Rondo missed the Celtics’ 79-71 loss to the Phoniex Suns due to a wrist injury.
The loss of Rondo was clearly evident as the Celtics missed his ability to guide the team up and down the court. Avery Bradley chipped in with ten points and held his own defensively, but he is not quite the point guard that Rondo is.
The Celtics have lost six of their last seven games and clearly need all the help they can get.
On the season, Rondo has been averaging 15 points and 9.4 assists per game.
