Rajon Rondo is our MVP, so going without him for a long period of time would be terrible. On the other hand, I'd gladly let him take a few days off to heal properly rather than risk a larger injury.
Rajon Rondo’s status has not been determined for Thursday night’s game against the Brooklyn Nets after he injured his right ankle in the third quarter of a 98-93 victory over the Utah Jazz Wednesday night. "I mean, [an injury is] going to happen," coach Doc Rivers. "He’s not going to play all 82, I doubt it. It’d be nice. You know how I think, the next guy, just somebody, has to step up and we have to figure it out."
He is now listed as day to day with a sprained right ankle, but he was minute-to-minute for a while last night as Rivers debated whether to put him back on the parquet. "Iffy," Rivers said afterward, "and I just felt like (it) was too early to take that chance."
Get well soon.
