Rajon Rondo suspended, will sit tonight
By Jeff Caplan
The Boston Celtics will likely be without two starters for tonight's game against the Mavericks. The league announced a two-game suspension for starting point guard Rajon Rondo for his actions Sunday night in a loss at Detroit.
Rondo, who will miss tonight's game and Wednesday's at Oklahoma City, was hit with two technical fouls within five seconds and ejected. Rondo threw the ball at an official and struck him in the chest.
Garnett is not likely to play due to personal reasons. Also, backup power forward Brandon Bass has been nursing an injury.
The Celtics (15-15) have lost three games in a row and five of six.
