      WALTHAM, Mass. (AP) – Rajon Rondo's elbow tested OK on Sunday,
and Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers says his point guard will be a
gametime decision for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals
against Miami.
      Rondo dislocated his left elbow in Saturday night's game, which
Boston won 97-81. He had an MRI and CAT scan at New England Baptist
Hospital on Sunday, which Celtics spokesman Jeff Twiss said came
out negative.
      Backup Delonte West has a bruised left shoulder, but Twiss said
he was feeling better the day after the game and did not need
tests.
      Center Shaquille O'Neal also had some swelling after playing 8½
minutes in the game. It was just his second appearance since Feb. 1
because of a right calf injury.
      The Heat lead the best-of-seven series 2-1.
