As soon as it became clear that Rajon Rondo's season was over, Keyon Dooling's name popped up as a potential replacement for him on the roster.

Dooling said immediately after the injury that he'd consider a comeback, but that he "wasn't in shape". Well Keyon, Doc Rivers has a request (per the Boston Globe's Gary Washburn).
