Rajon Rondo To Sit Out Vs. Nets

 

CSN’s Rich Levine broke the news via his twitter account (@rlevine33) that Doc would be resting his All-Star point guard this afternoon:

Rondo not playing today against NJ. Resting his hammy. Nate starting

Nice to see Doc wasn’t just blowing smoke when he said he wanted to rest Rondo more after Friday night’s game. The team had been taking too many chances with the point guard these past couple weeks just to ensure a couple extra wins, especially once Delonte went down. Rondo is never going to ask out of a game easily, so you have to make the decision for him.

With two more days of rest after this Sunday matinee, this seems like the perfect day to rest the hamstring, feet, etc. While every keeps pining for Avery Bradley, look for Von Wafer to get some serious run this afternoon, with Marquis Daniels handling the backup point guard duties.

UPDATE: Chris Forsberg of ESPNBoston has a few telling quotes from Doc on the situation in his pregame report:

“We have a two-day break after this and that’s one of the things that went into this,” said Rivers, acknowledging that the team might need to shut Rondo down for a short period of time to get the hamstring right again. The Celtics play a back-to-back later in the week as part of three games in four days. “Listen, it is what is is. We’re just going to try to get through it.”

Which won’t be easy with Robinson also hobbled by lingering foot ailment suffered in a win over Atlanta in which he started in place of Rondo.

“I just found out, actually, and I just told the TV and radio [reporters] he was good, because he was,” said Rivers. “Literally, as I was walking out, he said he can’t go. That’s a tough one, because we hadn’t prepared for that one. With Nate [also injured], it could be an interesting point guard rotation.”

Rivers said he would lean on Marquis Daniels as the first backup point guard off the bench, but acknowledged that rookie Avery Bradley could get thrust into the fire later in the game.

“It’ll be Marquis first, instinctively, but Avery will play some,” said Rivers.
