Rajon Rondo will not play tonight for the #Celtics against the #Nets and Leandro Barbosa will start in his place. — Gethin Coolbaugh (@GethinCoolbaugh) November 16, 2012 Rondo's ankle isn't serious, but they are going to be very cautious with him because he is so important to the team. No need to push him and risk further injury this early in the season. As for Rondo's streak of games with 10+ assists, missing a game will not affect that. It will end only if he plays and fails to record at least 10 assists. [Discuss on CG Forums!]
