Just when you think the C’s are “healthy” we get news like this reagarding Rondo’s condition, Via ESPN Boston’s Chris Forsberg: The meat and bones of Forsberg’s reports are as follows:
Rondo was at the team facility today and went through filmwork and a walk through with the team before being sent away.
Rondo was sent to the hospital for some IV work.
Doc on Rondo’s condition, while expecting him to play in game 1: “I don’t know how he’s going to feel. I don’t anticipate him feeling great. He’s throwing up and all that.”
Glen Davis and Tony Allen are also still battling the flu. TA practiced with the 1st team in Rondo’s absence.
So all bets are that, when we see Rajon Rondo tomorrow night, it won’t be at 100 percent, leaving Doc Rivers in a tough predicament as far as this team’s offense goes and managing minutes. The good news is thanks to NBA’s quirky playoff schedule, the C’s get 2 days of rest in between both games 1 and 2, as well as games 2 and 3. That gives this flu plenty of time to run it’s course hopefully and exit the Celtic locker room, while giving those affected plenty of rest.
