CLEVELAND -- Boston Celtics All-Star guard Rajon Rondo missed his seventh straight game with an injured right wrist.

Boston coach Doc Rivers said at the team's morning shootaround that Rondo would not play Tuesday night against the Cavaliers but could return to the lineup later this week. Rondo is traveling with the team. Boston hosts Toronto on Wednesday.

The Celtics have gone 5-2 without Rondo, who hasn't played since Jan. 18, when he fell and sprained his wrist. Tests have shown no structural damage.

Center Jermaine O'Neal did play in the Celtics' 93-90 win against Cleveland. He had been out for a week with a bruised left knee.
