Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports reports the news, after speaking with the point guard last night. An excerpt from the report:
Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo told Yahoo! Sports he expects to return to action Wednesday against Miami after missing the previous game with a hamstring injury. “I’m getting better each day with the rest I’m getting. I’m just ready to get back up there,” Rondo said.
Now Rondo wanting to play here should come as no surprise, but it’s good to hear straight from the source that the injury has improved everyday. We should probably know more after this afternoon’s practice session as we will be curious to see if Rondo participates in the drills as he failed to do yesterday.
My question for everyone though is do you want the C’s to be overly cautious with Rondo here and hold him out until the Hawks game? It’s evident a win without Rondo and company should be a far tougher task against Miami on the road, than it was at home against the Raptors, but I’d be willing to sacrifice that if there was any lingering pain with the injury. What is people’s stance on this?
