Rajon Rondo PG BOS 5 Days

Coach Brad Stevens believes Rajon Rondo will have a "monster year" in 2014-15.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand that Rondo will be better as he gets further removed from his January 2013 ACL tear. This season, he only played in 30 games and was coddled to some degree, averaging just 11.7 points, 9.8 assists and 5.5 rebounds in 33.3 minutes. We'd expect Rondo back around 37 minutes next season.

Rajon Rondo, Jared Sullinger, Kris Humphries and Jerryd Bayless will not play against the Wizards on Wednesday.

The Celtics announced he's dealing with a hamstring injury, which is not the same as his shin injury from earlier this month. He was back in the lineup on Monday night after missing some action over the weekend, but he won't play tonight. Rondo played just 30 games this season, averaging 11.7 points, 5.5 boards, 9.8 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.9 triples. He'll have the entire offseason to get ready for next year, which wasn't the case this year.

Rajon Rondo PG BOS 9 Days

Rajon Rondo returned to the lineup on Monday vs. the Sixers, scoring eight points with 11 boards, 14 assists and two steals in 35 minutes.

He was popped in the nose in the first quarter and had to leave the game, but he made it back without incident and looked fine. Rondo missed the last two games due to a shin injury and should be ready to go for Wednesday's finale.

Rajon Rondo (shin) will start against the Sixers on Monday.

He missed the last two games due to an out-of-nowhere shin issue, but he's likely close to 100 percent tonight. Rondo gets a great matchup in his return and figures to hit the ground running. If you were planning to use Phil Pressey tonight, it might be time to reconsider.

Rajon Rondo PG BOS 9 Days

Rajon Rondo (shin) is a game-time decision for Monday's game vs. the Sixers.

He went through a full shootaround and it sounds like he has a chance to play. His shin injury kept him out of his previous two games and it allowed Phil Pressey to step up. We should have an update on Rondo shortly.

Rajon Rondo PG BOS 9 Days

Rajon Rondo (shin) is questionable to return vs. the 76ers on Monday.

He sat out Friday and Saturday and the Celtics are just playing out the string with two games left, so owners should consider it a bonus if he suits up. Jerryd Bayless (knee) has already been ruled out so Avery Bradley should be busy regardless of Rondo's status.

Rajon Rondo PG BOS 11 Days

Rajon Rondo (bruised left shin) will sit out again on Saturday.

Jerryd Bayless (knee) is also out of commission, which leaves plenty of minutes in the backcourt for Avery Bradley and Phil Pressey. With only two games left on the schedule, on Monday and Wednesday, the Celtics may be tempted to simply shut down Rondo, but for now he's considered day-to-day.

Rajon Rondo PG BOS 12 Days

Rajon Rondo will not play on Friday vs. the Bobcats due to a left shin bruise.

He had his left leg wrapped up and was getting some ice on it to prepare for the game, but he said he can't go. Rondo not playing tonight means he could play in the second half of a back-to-back set on Saturday. Phil Pressey will start.

Rajon Rondo PG BOS 14 Days

Rajon Rondo scored 19 points vs. the Hawks on Wednesday with four boards, 12 assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 41 minutes.

He said before the game that there's a three percent chance he'll be able to play in the back-to-back set this week, which is definitely a Rondo thing to say. He should be good to go for Friday and has been sitting in the second half of back-to-backs, so his owners should have him locked and loaded against the Bobcats.

Rajon Rondo PG BOS 15 Days

Rajon Rondo said on Tuesday that he will not play in both games of the Celtics' upcoming back-to-back set this weekend.

It sounds like he's planning to miss the second game, which means he should play on Friday against Kemba Walker and the Bobcats, but won't play on Saturday against the Cavaliers. Rondo hinted earlier that he might play in both games, but it appears those plans have been scrapped.
