Rondo set to play after dislocating left elbow
BOSTON (AP) – Rajon Rondo is set to play for the Boston Celtics
in Game 4 against the Miami Heat two days after dislocating his
Coach Doc Rivers said before the game that his point guard would
play after looking OK in Monday morning's shootaround. The Heat
lead the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal series 2-1.
Rondo was hurt in the third quarter of Boston's 97-81 win
Saturday night when he got tangled up with Miami guard Dwyane Wade
and was thrown to the floor. An MRI and CAT scan on Sunday were
negative, Celtics spokesman Jeff Twiss said.
Rivers said he wasn't concerned about the health of backup point
guard Delonte West, who had a bruised left shoulder.
Earlier Monday, Rondo and teammate Kevin Garnett were selected
to the NBA's All-Defensive first team.
