Rondo Talks About His Wrist

Not to start a firestorm as a new blogger, but Is it time to start worrying about Rajon Rondo and his ailing right wrist?

After reading some of Steve Bulpett's article in the Boston Herald today it should give Celtics' fans some pause.

Here are a few excerpts from the article:

"It’s kind of depressing coming to the gym, because all I can do is dribble," Rondo said. "I can’t shoot. It hurts when I flick my wrist.

"I’ve just got to try to stay positive. I can’t try to force it, and when I am able to shoot again, I’ve got to catch back up."

"That’s why I’m not in a rush really — because it could get uglier than this," he said. "It’s pretty painful, so I don’t want to rush it."

It sounds like rest is going to be the best thing right now for Rondo, and hopefully Paul Pierce and the newfound youth in the backcourt can pick up the playmaking abilities with the starting point guard out. Even Doc Rivers noticed that Rondo is not able to do the things that he needs to do to get back on the court.

"He did a one-on-one drill and after about three minutes, we pulled him out because he just couldn’t finish," said Doc Rivers. "He couldn’t do anything. It’s tough to be a guard without a hand."

The situation is one that clearly needs to be monitored as Rondo was shooting a career best 51.7 percent from the floor and a modest 60 percent from the line.
