Rajon Rondo Likely Out On Friday - Avery Bradley May Start

Sounds like Rondo is day to day with that wrist injury. He probably won't be playing on Friday.

Rondo (wrist) doubtful vs. Phoenix

"It's still sore; I took like 10 Advil, so I’m OK," said Rondo. "I don’t know [about Friday's game]. Hopefully I get a good night’s rest. I’ll be in treatment pretty much all day today. Other than that. We’ll see tomorrow."

Rondo elected to push his MRI to later in the day so that he could attend the Boston's hourlong practice session at the Celtics Training Center and mentor young guards Avery Bradley and E'Twaun Moore. It's likely that Bradley, who ran with the first team Thursday, could draw the spot start, especially with reserve guard Keyon Dooling still out of action with a knee injury.

Recently Doc made note of the fact that Dooling is really more of a shooting guard anyway. Headed into the season we heard that Avery Bradley was really a better fit at the 2 as well. As far as I know E'Twaun Moore has always played the off guard position. I don't know how we always end up in this position, but once again it seems like we don't really have a solid backup point guard on the roster. With the way Rondo tosses his body around, you'd think we'd have thought that one through. Oh well.
