Even if Danny Ainge said I am a Celtics blogger, I would not trust him. If he told me I am a 24-year old male (which I am), I would not trust him. And if he described a Boston Celtics injury, I would take his words, delete them from my memory, chuckle that he expected anyone might believe them, and shake my head while remembering Shaq, who was said to return “next week” for approximately 3,487 weeks, then returned and promptly injured himself while jogging down court.Yet just because Ainge is still the Celtics general manager and he discussed Rajon Rondo’s status, I will report the news anywho, just in case he’s actually being honest. (Boston Herald)“It’s not torn, and it doesn’t need surgery,” he said. “But we need to be careful. This isn’t a perfect science. But there is no structural damage there.”“It takes a long time to get back to 100 percent with something like this,” he said. “Rondo would probably be playing if these were the playoffs. He’s played with a lot worse than

The Celtics have played extremely well as of late, but you have to wonder if the streak will continue if Rajon Rondo misses significant time while recovering from a wrist injury.
I hated the movie The Pursuit of Happyness. Every time Will Smith’s character was poised to make a breakthrough and end his bout with homelessness, disaster struck. A thief stole one of those medical devices he sold. He got arrested for accumulating too many unpaid parking tickets. A traffic jam arose right before his most important meeting, and the man left before Smith arrived...
The Celtics beat the Raptors 64-100 yesterday at home without Rajon Rondo and back-up Keyon Dooling. This was the Celtics best margin of victory since 2009. This moves the celtics to 11-10, finally getting over .500. None of this sounds that impressive, considering the celts were playing a improved, but by no means, decent Raptors team. What I was impressed with was the...
For a while there, it seemed like the Celtics didn't miss Rajon Rondo at all. With the Celtics point guard sidelines with a sore right wrist, the Celtics won four straight games and edged their record back to .500. They enter Wednesday's game against the Raptors with a 5-2 mark in Rondo's absence. Results aside, it is hard to argue that the Celtics are better off without...
Celtics All-Star guard Rajon Rondo will miss his seventh straight game with an injured right wrist.
Boston coach Doc Rivers said at the team's morning shootaround that Rondo will not play Tuesday night against the Cavaliers but could return to the lineup later this week. Rondo is traveling with the team. Boston hosts Toronto on Wednesday.
The Celtics have gone 4-2 without Rondo...
Tune out all the noise. Stop wondering about about whether Chris Kaman will give the Celtics some depth in the post or whether Paul Pierce should ever leave the court in crunch time. There's one major issue for the Celtics, and it's the obvious one. The more games Rajon Rondo spends on the sideline in his dapper suits with an injured right wrist, the harder it will gradually...
According to multiple sources at the TD Garden, including CLNS Radio’s Jared Weiss,, Ray Allen is expected to make his return from an ankle injury tonight at the TD Garden. Allen has missed the last three games after going down with the injury on January 22nd against the Washington Wizards. As expected, it is also [...]
The news seems to be getting better on the injury front for the Celtics. The return of Jermaine O'Neal means that the Celtics are no longer required to go to their small lineup whenever Kevin Garnett needs a rest and that Brandon Bass can return to his role as the spark plug off the bench.
Also according to Blakely, Doc Rivers believes that Rondo "may play tomorrow...

Lets do this all over again.
Tuesday night the Boston Celtics (9-10) travel to Cleveland for a rematch with the Cavaliers (8-11).
I’m going to keep this one brief. Rajon Rondo is out again for the Celtics. Anthony Parker and Daniel Gibson are out for the Cavaliers. No word yet (as of this writing) on who will be the starting SG. Coach Scott could start...

The Boston Celtics finally completed their long climb to get above the .500 mark on Wednesday night at the “New Garden” as they beat up the Toronto Raptors as well as took their lunch money winning by a lopsided margin of 100-64. The home team shot a scorching 52.0% (39-75) from the floor as well as 50% (12-24) from outside the arc. They held their visitors to an anemic 34...
Despite nagging injuries to some of their top players, the Boston Celtics have a good chance to surpass the .500 mark for just the second time this season.
With the last of their injured stars possibly set to return, the Celtics hope to accomplish that feat as they try for an eighth consecutive home victory over the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night.
Even with injuries to starters...

8 a.m.: After sweeping three games last week against two of the best teams in the Eastern Conference, the Celtics are in the midst of slate that is much less formidable. Two consecutive games against the Cavaliers did not garner the two victories the Celtics hoped for, though, and they'll take another crack at a mediocre squad when the Raptors visit the TD Garden on Wednesday...
