Rajon Rondo will not play tonight. He has a bruised shin.
— Boston Celtics (@celtics) April 11, 2014
Kemba Walker will also be sitting out tonight with a groin injury, so if you were hoping to tune in for the epic point guard showdown of Phil Pressey vs. Luke Ridnour, you are in for a SERIOUS treat.
Rondo was expected to play pre-game, but according to Celtics PR, he had a last-minute examination by Celtics trainer Ed Lacerte, which showed a bruise in his shin and calf.
Since today is the first night of a back-to-back, it’s worth wondering if this means Rondo will play tomorrow against Cleveland.
