Injury Updates on Rondo, Jermaine, Semih, & Magic Preview

Merry Christmas Eve and Happy Holidays to everyone out there. A few tidbits for you on the night before the C’s Christmas Day showdown with the new-look Orlando Magic. The Magic are coming off a blowout victory over the best team in the NBA thus far, the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday night:

We’ll start with some notes from our friend Chris Forsberg of ESPNBoston from the team’s shootaround this afternoon:

Boston Celtics rookie center Semih Erden did not participate in Friday’s practice session in Orlando due to a stomach bug and could miss Saturday’s Christmas showdown with the Magic, according to the team.

Boston is hoping to get center Jermaine O’Neal back after missing 19 consecutive games, the majority due to lingering left knee soreness that’s sidelined him since sitting out the second half of a loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Nov. 8, but O’Neal also sat out Wednesday’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers due to flu-like symptoms. He practiced Friday and could be back on the floor in a reserve role against Orlando.

Guard Rajon Rondo did not practice Friday and Celtics coach Doc Rivers told reporters he’ll continue to be cautious with his All-Star point guard, maybe extending his absence beyond the normal two-week window established after he sprained his left ankle against the New York Knicks on Dec. 15. That means Rondo is almost certainly out for Saturday’s game against the Magic.

To get you ready for the team’s big Christmas Day showdown, as well as discuss the C’s recent hot start, injuries, Eastern Conference foes, you name it, Rich Keefe and I put it altogether for another CelticsHub podcast.

    Rondo ): I was really hoping he'd be back for this game, but no need to rush it. Its only the regular season.

    Merry Christmas Eve or whatever holiday you do or don't celebrate. Looking forward to the Christmas game and hope my Celts win and every other team that counts loses.

    Thanks Celticshub for all you do, day in & day out!

      Same here. Although I really don't know who to root for in the LA-Miami game. I think I may actually root for the Lakers. It's hard to dislike anybody more than LBJ now, and I want the Cs to get the 1 seed so the Heat have to face ORL in the second round of the East playoffs.

    Lot of ways to approach this game, but the one I like the best is where we get Dwight Howard in early foul trouble and run out to a big lead. Establish Shaq-a-claus early and often, interspersed with PP beating Hedo off the dribble and drawing contact.
