With Rondo suspended, Celtics will start Courtney Lee, hoping his defense will help against Portland rookie Damian Lillard. — Chris Forsberg (@ESPNForsberg) November 30, 2012 Rajon Rondo is suspended for the next two games for his part in a brawl Wednesday night against the Nets. As such, a lot of the players that were brought on in the off-season are going to have to fill in. First up, Courtney Lee. It's not a surprise that Lee is going to be taking Rondo's place, as he did so in the second half of the game Wednesday night after Rondo was ejected. Don't expect Lee to play the Rondo role though. The Celtics don't have a single man on their roster who can do that. #Celtics coach Doc Rivers on no Rondo: I told our guys entire team has be ready for ballhandling duties. It left us in a pretty tough spot.— Scott Souza (@scott_souza) December 1, 2012 Leandro Barbosa started for Rondo the last time he missed a game, due to injury in the team's first game against the Nets.
