Avery Bradley will return, but Rajon Rondo may be out

One guard in, one guard out.

The good news, the long awaited return of Avery Bradley is nigh.

The bad news (though not shocking at all) is that Rondo is questionable.

Avery Bradley set to return for Celtics; Rajon Rondo uncertain for Wednesday game

During practice Tuesday, Celtics coach Doc Rivers said the team will be graced with the return of Avery Bradley, who hasn’t played in seven months and is coming off surgery on both his shoulders, for Wednesday’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies. But the Celtics may be without point guard Rajon Rondo, who has been dealing with a bruised hip that caused him to miss the Dec. 29 game against Golden State and hindered him in Sunday’s disappointing loss to Sacramento, when he had just two points. "When you’re getting beat down the court by a big, it’s frustrating," Rondo said. "I’m OK. I’ll be fine. It’s not like I need surgery or anything. It’s just a bruise."

Yeah, Rondo didn't look good in that last game and had a noticeable limp at times. Hope he heals soon. Kinda important to have him for the long haul.
