Rajon Rondo left the Boston Celtics-Utah Jazz game tonight in the 3rd quarter after spraining his ankle, and according to RotoWorld, he is questionable for Thursday's came in Brooklyn against the Nets: Rajon Rondo had six points, three rebounds and 10 assists before leaving Wednesday's game with a sprained right ankle.  He didn't return and will be questionable for Thursday's game against the Nets. Watch the Rotoworld News Page for updates on his status between now and then. If he's out, Leandro Barbosa or Jason Terry would likely start at point guard, although Terry was buried on the bench while Rondo was out. This is what most Celtics fans were worried about when we didn't sign a back-up point guard. It's just coming a bit earlier in the season than we would have liked. Hopefully Rondo will be OK, but if he can't play Thursday, we will get a better chance to see how Jason Terry and Leandro Barbosa do with handling the ball. Paul Pierce ...

5 things Celtics must do to win tomorrow

The Celtics lost last night in Brooklyn without Rondo. I think, because of that, they get an exception and the loss is okay.

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

Only 5 games into the season it is way to early to panic about this team or jump off the bandwagon. I said this at the beginning of the season we need to wait about 20 games to really judge this team and make a judgement to weather this team is going to make a title run. The good with this Celtics team in the first 2 weeks has to start at the top with the play of PG Rajon Rondo....

Brooklyn Nets 102, Boston Celtics 97: C’s let one slip away with poor execution down the stretch

In the Celtics first game in the brand new Barclays Arena, some basketball was being played through the music being blared through the loud speakers.  The Celtics were without Rajon Rondo after his ankle sprain last night, with Leandro Barbosa starting in his place.  With the game tied 87, Brooklyn pulled away and despite the Celtics best efforts (including a dicey foul on D-Will...

Jeff Green Comes Out Of A Coma, Dunks On Al Jefferson

Did you hear that collective sigh of relief?  That was Celtic nation.  Jeff Green has all the tools and capabilities to do good and even great things.  This dunk was just straight up dirty by Green.  I think Al Jefferson may have filed a restraining order after it.  It was nice to finally see a mean side of Jeff Green.  Earlier during the week we heard he was too soft and nice...

Defense:  He played the passing lanes...
