Celts Say Rondo To Miss A Couple Of Weeks With Sprained Ankle

Ainge: Celtics PG Rondo to miss 'couple of weeks'

      BOSTON (AP) – Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo will miss a
couple of weeks with a sprained left ankle.
      Rondo was helped off the court after he hurt his ankle early in
the fourth quarter of Wednesday night's game against the New York
Knicks. He returned and finished the game, then said afterwards he
expected to play against the Atlanta Hawks on Thursday night.
      But general manager Danny Ainge said on WEEI-AM on Thursday that
Rondo's ankle was swollen after the game and will need rest.
Celtics spokesman Jeff Twiss had no further information on the
injury.
      Rondo is averaging 11.2 points and a career-best 13.8 assists
per game. He has missed four games with hamstring and foot
problems.
      Nate Robinson is expected to take his place in the starting
lineup.
