Rondo Gets Rest, Will Play

As reported yesterday, Rondo is sitting out practice but will play on Thursday according to Doc.  Mark Murphy reports

The team gathered yesterday strictly to watch video, and will practice today prior to their flight to Chicago for tomorrow's Game 3 against the Bulls. And until then, Rondo, who aggravated the injury once again Monday during Game 2, is under orders to rest.

"It's better," coach Doc Rivers said yesterday of Rondo's battered ankle. "For the next 48 hours he's not going to do anything. We already knows he's not going to practice tomorrow. That's a fact. Obviously we're not going to put anything new in. But we will be able to walk over things. But it's better, the swelling has gone down."
