Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo injured his back during Saturday night’s loss to the Wizards, and may not play in tonight’s rematch. His status, according to the Boston Globe’s Gary Dzen, is “up in the air.”
The morning shoot-around was cancelled Monday due to the snowstorm pounding Boston. We’ll see how that affects the Celtics’ shooting tonight. At least it gave Rondo more time to rest without skipping practice.
Here’s more of what Dzen said about Rondo:
Rajon Rondo injured his back in the second half of Saturday’s loss, and his status for tonight is up in the air. Rondo is not working out on the court right now for the Celtics, and this is usually about the time he comes out to shoot. That may not mean much, though, because Rondo did the same thing a couple of weeks ago when he was questionable for the Rockets game after missing a game with the Lakers. Rondo started against the Rockets.
