Rondo Misses Practice But Will Play

SI.com reports:

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo missed practice on Wednesday because of a bone bruise in his left ankle, but he said he would be ready to play in Game 4 of the NBA finals against the Los Angeles Lakers.

X-rays were negative, and Rondo iced and rested his ankle overnight.

"Nobody in this league is 100 percent, but I'm sure I'll play," he said during the media availability period before practice at Staples Center. "There is no way I'm going to miss the game, probably. But I don't want to hurt the team, and not be able to give them my all."

Meanwhile, Rajon is running a trivia challenge and the prize is an autographed headband.
