Rondo dislocates elbow, returns
The injury looked far more severe when it occurred. Rondo's elbow bent awkwardly as he hit the floor as he and Miami's Dwyane Wade scrambled for a loose ball. The Celtics were on a 16-4 run to open the second half and had built a 10-point lead at 60-50 with 7:01 to play in the third quarter.
Rondo was attended to by team physician Dr. Brian McKeon and trainer Ed Lacerte before being helped to the locker room clutching the left elbow area.
Late in the third quarter, Rondo returned to the Boston bench, a white protective sleeve over the elbow. Boston carried an 11-point lead into the fourth quarter as he returned to action.
