As the Boston Celtics take on the Sacramento Kings tonight in Sacramento, they may be without point guard Rajon Rondo.  Rondo sat out Saturday night's game with a bruised right hip.  He suffered the injury Thursday. According to Ben Wantanabe of NESN, Rondo is questionable for tonight's game and is listed as a game-time decision.  The Celtics are hoping to get back to .500 and would love to have Rondo back on the court, but the team is waiting to see what the trainers tell them, says Chris Forsberg of ESPN Boston. "I have no idea (if Rondo will play), I really don't," Celtics coach Doc Rivers told reporters in Oakland after Saturday's loss to the Golden State Warriors. "I didn't ask. I'll ask later tonight or tomorrow. But usually I kind of let (trainer) Eddie (Lacerte) tell me. I stay out of that whole thing."The Celtics dropped to 14-15 on the season after their loss to the surprising Golden State Warriors on Saturday.  However, they can climb right back to .500 with a win tonight against the Kings.  The Kings have struggled this year, but so have the Celtics.  Boston has battled injuries, suspensions, and just poor play. They will need Rondo healthy going forward if they are to compete in the Eastern Conference.  Rondo makes that team go.  He is averaging 13.6 points per game and 11.7 assists per game this season.  It has been, perhaps, Rondo's best season ever.  In his career, he has averaged 11.0 points per game and 8.3 assists per game.    Follow @hoopsinjurynews
