No hints from Ainge on Rondo's status
"We're not sure yet, we'll wait until he gets here, gets some treatment and see," Ainge said of Rondo, while making his weekly appearance on Boston sports radio WEEI (93.7 FM). "There hasn't been any decision made."
Pressed on the severity of the injury, Ainge added: "He just tweaked his ankle last night, we don’t know the severity yet, we’ll see when he gets over here tonight... I think [sitting Rondo out on Wednesday] was a decision that [coach] Doc [Rivers] made. I think Rondo was ready to come back in. I think that Doc made that decision based on that we had four games in five nights, and Rondo’s playing a ton of minutes, and [Leandro] Barbosa had it going. More than anything [Rivers is] just trying to be cautious with Rajon, he’s so important to us."
