Danny Ainge just finished up his weekly interview with WEEI 850 in Boston and passed along the following news that the C’s All-Star point guard likely will be missing the next couple weeks due to his sprained ankle. Here’s some key remarks courtesy of weei.com:
“Rajon, I think, will be out for a couple of weeks, anyway,” Ainge said.
“I think that Rajon is young, and he heals fast and he loves to play, to his credit. I couldn’t believe he was back on the court last night. He wasn’t moving very well, even when he got back out on the court. You could tell he was still in a lot of pain, and certainly after the game it started puffing up. This morning there was a lot of swelling, and he definitely needs some time off.”
The injury means more minutes for Nate Robinson, who is averaging 7.7 points and 2.3 assists per game.
“Nate has been playing very well for us,” Ainge said, “and now he’s going to have to step it up and play more minutes.”
