CLEVELAND (AP) -- Celtics All-Star guard Rajon Rondo will miss his seventh straight game with an injured right wrist.

Rajon Rondo, on injury status: “I haven’t touched a ball, really”

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...

Rondo Injury A Blessing In Disguise

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...

Sean Grande: Rajon Rondo out, Jermaine O’Neal starting vs. Cavaliers

Sean Grande (seangrandepbp) on Twitter via kwout   Is it even news at this point that Rajon Rondo is out of the lineup? I guess it’s a good thing that Doc is keeping opponents on their heels by waiting until the last minute, but at this point I’m expecting Rajon Rondo out of the lineup [...]

Are the Celtics Better Without Rajon Rondo?

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...

Report: Rajon Rondo Out Tuesday Against Cavaliers, Jermaine O'Neal Will Play

Rajon Rondo ‘would probably be playing’ if it were playoffs, says Danny Ainge

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...

Rajon Rondo Can't Return Quickly Enough for Celtics, Who Are Starting to Feel Point Guard's Absence

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...

Ray Allen expected to play, Rajon Rondo out against Cavs

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 [...]

Rajon Rondo out, Jermaine O'Neal to return tonight

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...

Celtics-Cavaliers Set To Rematch In Cleveland

Irving with the game winner 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.

Raptors-Celtics Preview

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...

Celtics Live Blog: C's Hoping to Rely on Depth With Last-Place Raptors in Town

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...
